Sunderland-based travel agent chain Hays Travel has launched a new discount app for its 5,400 employees.
The app, provided by Reward Me Now, offers staff up to 18% savings at more than 130 high street retailers, including Debenhams, Currys PC World, and Virgin Experience Days, with no set-up fee or monthly charges.
Launched in late January 2020, the app will be available to all employees as soon as they start working at Hays Travel. In the first week following its launch, 54% of employees signed up to the new service.
Helen Liddle, head of HR at Hays Travel, said: “We are constantly exploring the market for benefits that can attract, retain and engage our staff, but most importantly give employees a financial or health and wellbeing benefit that is a unique perk of working for Hays Travel.
“It is often difficult to find a platform which is free for both the [business] and the employee, so you can imagine our delight when Reward Me Now got in touch to offer this amazing app.
“We have already had an incredible uptake, with over half of the staff enrolling already, creating a real buzz around the workplace. It’s great to see how much our employees have already saved across so many retailers and they are already talking about how much they are likely to save in the future.”
