Perkbox continues global expansion, opening offices in Australia
27th February 2019, London, UK - Perkbox, Europe’s fastest growing employee experience platform, is today announcing the continuation of its global expansion plans by opening new offices in Sydney, Australia.The announcement follows only months after the company’s expansion into France, which achieved faster success than expected, and the launch of its three new products in the UK.
Perkbox Australia is currently building its portfolio of perks with providers such as Experience Oz, Fast Cover, F45, looking to cater for the full spectrum of employee wellbeing - physical, financial and emotional, at an affordable price. After a successful initial launch in the UK, Perkbox will also be offering two of its new products, Perkbox Insights and Perkbox Recognition, in this new market.
With offices in The Commons, for now the majority of the team is made up of experienced Perkboxers who, previously based in London, have been with the company from the start. This is a conscious decision made by the Senior Leadership Team to ensure the company starts off with an experienced talent pool and is able to remain relevant and competitive, whilst keeping the company’s renown culture intact.
The company has already signed up a number of exciting companies as customers including coworking workspace, Emerge Sydney; food and beverage startup, Hey You; suit maker, Institchu and SME loans company, Valiant Finance. Perkbox is estimating to onboard another 2,000 companies by the end of the year.
Ben Leeds, Country Manager of Perkbox Australia says: “Since our very beginnings in 2015, we set off to build a clean and intuitive solution that helps businesses improve their culture and motivate their team without breaking the bank. Today marks the start of an exciting new phase here at Perkbox, as we move towards spreading our ‘Perkbox movement’ into yet another market, slowly turning this into a global revolution.”
Saurav Chopra, Co-founder and CEO of Perkbox says: “We’ve seen many businesses that offer wellbeing perks top LinkedIn’s list of most popular companies to work for in Australia. Paying for top talent is important but money isn’t the only thing that makes employees happy - and Australians know it. We’re super excited to be expanding into such a dynamic and forward-thinking market and can’t wait to make a noticeable difference.”
