CiC has recently teamed up with Perkbox to provide in the moment support to their half a million members! We are delighted to be making our employee assistance and wellbeing services accessible via Perkbox’s popular employee benefits platform.

Did you know, that 61% of the UK’s workforce is disengaged? Perkbox is a new initiative to support organisations with ‘perks’ to help tackle this problem. The online platform aims to help employees become more engaged with their organisation by offering a wide range of employee ‘perks’!

CiC has now joined the hundreds of organisations across the UK that provides employee discounts with the view to “build happier company cultures”.

Not only have CiC signed up for Perkbox, but we are delighted to now be one of the “perks”! Our professional, trained counsellors can offer in-the-moment support to Perkbox members. When an organisation signs up to Perkbox, each employee has access to the Employee Support Hub, powered by CiC. This includes access to our 24 hour freephone helpline, Live Chat facility and a Health and Wellbeing portal where hundreds of wellbeing helpsheets can be found. It also includes all the information they need to get in touch with us should they need to.

As well as free Café Nero drinks and great savings on flights, Perkbox offers members ‘wellbeing’ perks relating to health and fitness, including free classes at Boxx, discounts on gym memberships and savings on skincare.
