Are perks for work worth it?


Yes, perks for work can make a difference for both employee recruitment and retention.

Increasingly, people want more from their employers. It’s no longer just about salary or location, but the entire employee experience — which encompasses many things. Offering your team ongoing perks, that are available to them simply because they’re your employees, will contribute positively to your employee experience and boost your reputation as a good employer. 

But not all employee perks platforms are created equal, and many will be more costly and time-consuming for you to set up and continue to offer out. We understand this at Charlie, which is why we incorporated perks for work into our HR software, so everything you need to look after your team is in one place, for one cost. 

With Charlie’s perks for work you get:

  • No hidden costs: perks come free with your Charlie subscription

  • Huge choice and value: there are overs 30,000 different deals and employee discount schemes

  • World class offers: the same perks that Google and Tesla give their teams
