Take This Job and Love It - Great Perks for Great Employees

Free on-site massages, in-house gourmet lunch, special pricing at the gym, discounts on entertainment and local dining; Many great companies are providing their staff with more perks than ever - not just to show their love - but to help their teams save money, get in shape and have some fun. Perks programs are simple, affordable ways to improve tangible benefits for your employees, with loads of other tangible benefits.

According to the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), 58% of companies offer some type of special discount program for their employees. Among those companies, 51% said they had expanded their discount program in the previous two years. And, 55% of employees said that they valued these discounts as part of their compensation.

Larky is now working closely with many great employers to help their teams get the best perks and maximize use of these programs. We can help in three ways:

  1. Larky develops awesome perks programs that align with your company culture and provide great offers from local and national merchants.
  2. Our platform maximizes awareness and usage by automatically reminding users when they are eligible for a discount. Walk into a local store and you might get a reminder like, "Pow! You get a 20% discount compliments of your Widget Company discount program." And we're building tools to mimic this experience while shopping online.
  3. We provide analytics to help you understand how your team is using their perks, how much they are saving, what new offers would be compelling, and more.

In a future post, we'll talk about how perks programs boost employee engagement and all the amazing benefits that come from stronger engagement. The research will shock you!

We'd love to talk with you about how Larky can build an amazing perks program for your employees (or improve an existing one), and how we make sure your employees get all the discounts they deserve at the right time and place. Drop us a note at hello@larky.com to see how we can work together to bring a new level of joy to your team.
