Launch of Perkbox to reward our colleagues

South West Essex Community Education Trust is offering its employees a free Perkbox membership to support their physical, mental and financial wellbeing.


Perkbox is a digital platform that prioritises workplace wellbeing, rewards employees and gives staff members access to thousands of discounts and exclusive offers on various products and services suiting every lifestyle.

Our staff contribute immensely to the future of the Trust and its pupils, and we want them to feel valued with this personalised recognition and reward platform.


Starting this month, colleagues will be able to use the online portal to improve their work-life balance.


From then, they will be able to choose from a selection of perks and freebies, including subsidised gym memberships, wellness programmes as well as deals on shopping, dining and entertainment.

Perkbox partners with big brands and gives staff the opportunity to save on the things that matter to them. Takeaways and supermarkets; mobile phones and computers; health and beauty including gym memberships and personal care; cinema tickets, books and events are the types of perks staff can expect deals on.

The app will help our staff to be their best selves with a variety of tools, discounts and content that supports their physical and mental wellbeing.

There is free access to online gym classes and workout videos, and resources such as talking therapies, sleep stories and meditation guides, as well as savings on a variety of wellbeing tools in the form of gym gear and digital wellbeing apps.

Perkbox cultivates a culture of collaboration, appreciation and wellbeing which underpins SWECET’s commitment to providing staff with the right support alongside their duties. We’re delighted to have launched a platform that values our employees and recognises their contribution to delivering high-quality education, and we hope that these new perks will be enjoyed.

The platform will transform colleague rewards and employee engagement, whilst empowering our colleagues to thrive both personally and professionally.
