No doubt about it.. your Perkbox launch is the biggest date in the calendar. 

Building buzz before launch is super important and we are here to help. 

We have written a few snippets to share with your teams prior to launch. Copy and paste these into Slack channels, emails, Yammer, or whatever you use to communicate important announcements.

We'll soon be announcing access to a suite of benefits to save you
$$$ on anything from your weekly Woolies shop to your Iconic addiction.

Watch this space for further announcements. 😀

Fitness teaser

Working on your fitness? If you ever find you can't quite make it to the gym but are keen to work out, we will soon be providing you with an online fitness portal. 

Your fitness, your way!

Perkbox is coming

If you haven't worked it out yet... we are soon to be partnering with Perkbox. 

Perkbox is an online platform (and app) that gives you access to over 120 exclusive perks and discounts.

On (launch date) you will be able to log in and start redeeming lots of fun perks

We will be releasing further information soon, watch this space...

With this early release note, we recommend running a Slack poll for the whole business. For example;

Which category of perks are you most excited about?

  1. Shopping

  2. Entertainment

  3. Health & fitness

  4. Food & drink

  5. Technology 

  6. Finance

  7. Learning

  8. Travel

Once your results are in, share the first perk poster to showcase what they have to look forward to. 

If you don't use Slack internally, why not start discussions in the office? Grab a coffee and find out what your team really wants. 

Have a Perkbox launch party. Get the buzz going with some Perkbox themed food- we recommend cupcakes- ask your Account Manager for our logo!

What is Perkbox? Your employees should have already have an overview, but why not play the Perkbox tour video playing on a big screen and let everyone know what they can get from their new platform.

For the morning huddle, get everyone together to redeem your free hot drink with Hey You.

Who best to spread the Perkbox cheer than a Perkbox Champion?

This is an opportunity to give a high-performing employee more responsibility, and in turn help them feel more valued and motivated. As they are a trusted peer, your team is more likely to relate to your Champion’s experiences of the platform, rather than any third party influences.

A Perkbox Champion....
• Shares Perkbox updates with the team
• Manages communications about Perkbox
• Educates new starters about Perkbox
• Collects feedback regarding the platform, and reports back

Most companies will have a core set of values that employees should live and breath. Why not remind everyone of these and bring them to life by creating Recognition Polls, and encouraging peers to vote for those who embody these principles.

For example, create a poll Above and Beyond and run for the month to inspire the team to get involved. You could also allocate a reward for the winner to make it extra special.

Good luck spreading the joy - please get in touch with your Customer Success Manager if you have any questions.
