Supporting financial wellbeing in a COVID-19 world
With discounts of up to 30% available through our Employee Benefits framework, could you help give your employees a financial boost in 2021?
As the UK starts to gradually unwind the lockdown restrictions which have been part of our lives for the last 12 months, a pressing question for every organisation, regardless of their size, is what they can do to support their people in the year ahead.
According to recent Edenred research with 2,000 UK based employees, over 18% indicated that financial wellbeing was their primary concern heading into 2021.
A combination of 12 months of the COVID-19 pandemic, recent pay freezes for many public sector employees, and Brexit contributing to the rising price of some everyday household goods, means that employers are being challenged to find new ways to effectively support their people financially throughout 2021 and beyond.
Over 200 public sector organisations are currently using Edenred’s ‘mydiscounts’ scheme to help give their staff a financial boost. Available for free via our Employee Benefits framework, the online platform gives employees direct access to shopping discounts of up to 30% at hundreds of online and high street retailers. This includes brands such as John Lewis, Curry’s PC World, Deliveroo, ASOS, M&S, Tesco and many more.
So, whether it is on the daily essentials, dining out, fashion, the latest tech or making travel plans, mydiscounts provides an engaging way for your employees to save substantial sums of money. Last year, over £1.2 million was saved by public sector employees by using the mydiscounts platform.
Savings anytime, anywhere
A new mobile app has been launched by Edenred to make things even easier for your people. Available on both iOS and Android, it offers a fast, simple, convenient way for your users to save money on the go.
Edenred can help you ensure maximum engagement with the scheme from your employees. As standard, you can expect to receive a regular email programme highlighting the latest discounts, flash sales, competitions and much more.
