Employee benefits help smaller businesses stand out

Pure Planet is a small business with a big mission. Since its launch in 2016, the start-up has gone from strength to strength. Each employee is committed to making renewable energy affordable and available to all.

The company has invested in happypeople to show employees that they are valued. The team may be small, but when it comes to creating a great employee experience, this energetic, forward-looking enterprise proves that size really doesn’t matter.

Attracting like-minded people

Pure Planet’s People Director Richard Roberts believes passionately in creating a culture based on purpose, people and sustainability. He wanted an employee benefits solution that would attract like-minded people – and discovered happypeople.

“Our online benefit scheme had to demonstrate that we’re committed to finding people who share our values. happypeople does just that. We also discovered a great partner in PES. They understand that an online employee benefit scheme is crucial to building a loyal, motivated team – for businesses of any size.”

We needed a competitive system that will grow with us as our reward strategy evolves. happypeople absolutely fits the bill, offering a strong range of benefits, including the all-important shopping perks, and the flexibility to add many more. The fact that online shopping is included in the price is a real bonus.

Taking reward seriously

So how does a cheeky start-up compete for talent with long-established industry monoliths? Pure Planet doesn’t just rely on what the business stands for. In fact, it embodies its values by taking reward seriously.

Current core benefits include a pension, private medical insurance and life assurance. Employees can also enjoy a health cash plan and a cycle to work scheme. Childcare vouchers and Perks at Work (our discounted online shopping portal) are included free of charge, as they are for all happypeople customers.

What was the result?

  • 89% registration rate shows that employees are valuing the scheme.
  • 83% have signed up for Perks at Work saving a total of £654 to date.

With financial wellbeing workshops and new benefits in the pipeline, Pure Planet is determined to keep its people happy well into the future.
