Wolters Kluwer launches voluntary benefits scheme

Media company Wolters Kluwer has launched a voluntary benefits scheme for its 1,000 UK staff to increase employee engagement.

The programme, WK UK Shop, provides access to a range of discounts and the ability to earn cashback at more than 1,500 retailers, including Boots, Debenhams and John Lewis. Offers can be taken up online, by phone or in-store. Employees also have access to a telephone helpdesk that provides support and advice on the perks for 12 hours a day, six days a week.

The scheme, provided by Asperity, was communicated via a benefits brochure, a roadshow and internal presentations. Take-up has reached 30% since its launch in March.

Caitriona Banting, the firm’s UK reward manager, said: “To be able to offer our employees a benefits package that can give them real day-to-day savings is a great way to show we value their work.”
