Employee benefits platform Perkbox set to double Sheffield workforce with office move
Perkbox, the UK employee benefits platform, is relocating its Sheffield team to larger premises to accommodate further business growth.
The 55-strong Sheffield team is moving from Scotland Street to 6,400 sq ft of office space on Saville Street. Moving into these new premises will allow Perkbox to double the current team.
Perkbox will also be relocating its London-based sales director Jack Beldon to the Sheffield offices, where he will become the SME customer success director. He will be the senior leadership team (SLT) member permanently resident in Sheffield.
The plans, according to the company, are to continue expanding both teams and slowly adding new functions to complete them.
Saurav Chopra, Perkbox co-founder and CEO, said: “We are very proud to have become an employer of choice in the area, with a clear distinctive culture that is very much aligned to Perkbox London.
“But it’s important that as we grow, we can ensure that we can keep this going. We’re aware that a culture of 10 people can never be the same as that of 100. However, at the same time, we believe that there is nothing that can ever take away our identity, mission and values.
“This is what these new arrangements represent to us, our consciousness to ensure that we embrace our fast-paced growth like a true family, through great leaders that can transfer the skills needed - like Jack, who has been with us from the start - and a space where we can all work comfortably and have fun together.”
Councillor Mazher Iqbal, cabinet member for business and innovation at Sheffield City Council, added: “I am thrilled that Perkbox is moving into larger premises, encouraging our talented young graduates to stay in our brilliant city and demonstrating other businesses the countless benefits that they can get by following the Perkbox example.
“What’s more, in Sheffield we’re interested in attracting those businesses that give as much importance to retaining employees as they do to retaining customers, offering our graduates the opportunity to work for truly inspirational leaders. We believe that Perkbox acts as a role model in this respect and are delighted by that.”
