Igloo Energy prioritises employee wellbeing by launching with Perkbox

Energy provider Igloo Energy has launched a wellbeing platform to support its 116 employees during the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic.

Announced 6 May 2020, the organisation has partnered with benefits provider Perkbox to offer its 116 employees a wide range of benefits that they can access from home including shopping discounts, free online exercise classes and an employee assistance programme (EAP).

Igloo Energy launched the app within four days of concept by streamlining its marketing strategy and sending out promotional emails to its employees.

Since the launch, 86% of employees have logged onto the platform and 200 benefits have been redeemed, with workout classes and a monthly movie option being the most popular benefits so far.

Alongside the platform, Igloo Energy is also running a weekly fitness challenge incentivising employees to get active during lockdown by offering prizes.

Matt Clemow, co-founder and chief executive at Igloo Energy, said: “The wellbeing of the Igloo Energy team is always at the front of our minds, but even more so during this difficult time. Following a recent employee survey, we wanted to do more to support our employees to improve their fitness and wellbeing, and really liked the ways they could access the range of benefits on offer from Perkbox from the comfort of their own home, now and also in the future.”
