In-person event

About this event

The average person spends a third of their time at work. But despite what many people say, our lives aren’t divided into two sections. Life doesn’t start only when work stops – nor vice versa.

The startup and tech world is known for bringing new perks to employees and innovating in this space. Ping pong tables, free coffee/tea, sometimes free food, etc. Yet, do we actually know what really helps keep loyal employees and enhance their working experience?

According to Perkbox, UK's 'Employee Benefits Provider of the Year 2018' there are a few areas that will help keep your colleagues happy: Employees' perks, medical support, listening to employees, recognising their performance and boosting their wellness.

Therefore employers are responsible for empowering their people to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives outside of work as well as inside. This means recognising that workforces are made up of people, personalising each employee experience and promoting wellness are crucial steps for modern businesses.

We invited both founders of Perkbox, Chieu Cao (CMO) and Saurav Chopra (CEO) to sit down with our audience, tell us about their entrepreneurial journey and share with us insights about how to keep employees happy and how to get new customers. Perkbox is UK’s fastest growing employee benefits platform and Scale-up Business of the Year 2017, so they should know all about it. 

Join us, learn from their insights and apply them at your company.
