Employee engagement and perks platform Perkox has unveiled its planned expansion into Europe with the opening of a new base in France.

Perkbox made a name for itself with a service which offers around 250 ‘perks’, including discounts and freebies to employees of subscribed businesses.

The London and Sheffield-based start-up’s clients include OpenTable, Nandos, Hawksmoor, Rentalcars and Levi Strauss & Co.

Having grown its revenues by 137 per cent since 2016, the company has now announced the opening of offices in 10 Rue Pergolèse, Paris, and is currently building its portfolio of perks with providers such as IKEA, Sephora, Decathlon and Zalando.

“Our goal is to become the biggest engagement platform worldwide that helps foster the entire employee experience of every company’s staff,” said co-founder and CEO Saurav Chopra.

“Our expansion into France shows our ongoing commitment to achieve this. We have listened to our clients’ demands and are now acting upon them.

Due to legal employment obligations, French companies have to provide their staff with mandatory benefits, including health, pension and unemployment benefits, business expenses and paid holidays.

The company says 450 SMEs have already registered to launch with Perkbox. It has plans to have 3,000 up and running on the platform by the end of the year and will be expanding further across Europe in the next 12 months.

Chopra added: “It’s the start of an exciting new phase here at Perkbox, as we launch globally.

“With a new generation of products going live alongside these expansion plans, it’s not only about location but about delivery. We want to ensure we are offering our customers all the support they need to build happier workplaces.”
