Kingswood Partners With Perkbox to Further Staff Engagement and Happiness


Kingswood one of the UK’s leading providers of outdoor education, has partnered with Perkbox a leading employee engagement platform, to launch an exciting new incentives, rewards and engagement programme for its employees.

As part of its continuing commitment to reward its team of 650 for their hard work and to reinforce it as a great business for which to work, Kingswood will now provide its team with free and exclusive access to over a hundred practical and recreational perks. New benefits now available to the team at Kingswood via Perkbox include up to 6% off at 20,000 retail stores and 50 nationwide brands, two-for-one or 50% off in more than 6,500 restaurants with a free tastecard, free mobile phone insurance and breakdown cover, money off in pubs, bars and coffee shops, heavily discounted theatre tickets and attraction day passes, corporate rates in top gym chains, half price MOTs, amongst hundreds of others. Fresh perks will be added to the platform regularly and all employees will be able to simply redeem these via their own dedicated account using Perkbox’s online platform and smartphone app.

As well as easy online and on-the-go redemption using the latest technology, Kingswood staff will also have access to an engagement platform that is designed to enhance financial, emotional and physical wellbeing. This includes online classes in yoga, healthy cooking and meditation, as well as financial help and advice. The team will be automatically enrolled in an online internal Rewards and Recognition platform – a gamified system carefully constructed to reward employees and drive peer-to-peer recognition. They will also be gifted with an occasional surprise ‘Perkbox’ filled with treats and free goodies for the whole team to enjoy.

Jason Andrews, Managing Director at Kingswood, commented: “We are fully committed to making Kingswood a great place to work and play – both for all of our guests and our fantastic teams who welcome and inspire over 160,000 young people to our education and adventure centres each year. Perkbox was an easy choice for us. The perks are wide and varied and the Rewards and Recognition platform perfectly complements the ‘Kingswood Crowns’ system we already have in place. It provides another fun and rewarding way to show our appreciation to all our teams, whether they’re Activity Leaders on centre, support staff, or office based.”

Saurav Chopra, CEO and Co-Founder of Perkbox, said: “Kingswood’s business resonates deeply with our employee engagement offering, specialising in providing inspiring and physically stimulating activities that give enjoyment and educate curious minds at the same time. Kingswood is a pioneer in the outdoor education movement, demonstrating genuine empathy and understanding of how to drive meaningful engagement in children. We are delighted to have partnered with Kingswood to further staff engagement and happiness and reinforce their industry-leading position.”
