K&L Gates increases take up of discounted gym membership

Take-up of K&L Gates’ discounted gym membership has grown steadily since its launch, due to the scheme being offered through a monthly enrolment window.

Around one-fifth of the law firm’s 217 employees have enrolled in the benefit since it was launched in May.

Debra Scudder, HR manager at K&L Gates, said: “We are having new employees join every month. Since there is a monthly enrolment window they can take their time to join.”

The firm previously offered discounted gym membership, but only one local gym was included in the scheme. It decided to launch GymFlex with Incorpore to offer employees wider choice.

Scudder added: “Employees were requesting flexibility because the previous gym was closer to work, and staff wanted us to look at gyms that were closer to their home addresses.”

The details of the new scheme were communicated using email and the firm’s intranet site.
