Nationwide Call-out for Workplace ‘Happy Moments’ Celebrating UK’s Best Office Cultures

Jun 2, 2017 - (Newswire)


- Employee engagement company Perkbox launches #happymoments photo competition capturing employees' spontaneous moments of bliss working within UK's happiest companies

With a third of all UK workers unhappy at work* and with over 54% of employees confessing that going home was the highlight of their workday**, Perkbox (www.perkbox.co.uk), UK's leading employee benefits provider, has launched a nationwide call-out for the country's happiest teams to take a spontaneous snapshot of one moment of workplace bliss that celebrates positive work culture as part its #happymoments competition.

The scheme is set to reinforce to business leaders the benefits of a positive work environment and the impact this has on employee well being as well as on engagement, productivity and retention.

The top three best entries as voted by the general public will win an all-expenses paid office party for their company or department (up to 100 staff), including food, drink and foot-tapping rhythms provided by a live mariachi band.

From cuddling the office dog, keeling over with laughter at a funny team meeting or tucking into an elevenses chocolate cake at the desk - companies nationwide, big and small, with brilliant work cultures are invited to capture genuine, off-the-cuff snapshots of workplace bliss to visually showcase why their organisation leads by example in terms of workplace happiness.

Entrants simply upload their entries via this form perk.so/happymomentcomp on Facebook with a caption to accompany their picture. Once done, entrants are then encouraged to share the link with colleagues, clients, friends and family to cultivate the votes. The online gallery of entrants can be viewed publicly at perk.so/happymomentgallery. The company with the most votes wins. The competition ends midnight on 23 June, 2017.

Chieu Cao, Co-founder and CMO of Perkbox commented: "I can't labour the point enough; investment in staff happiness and ensuring that the work culture you're immersed in remains uplifting, inspiring and hugely supportive of all team members makes complete business sense. We spend a huge proportion of our waking hours at work, so it's important that we enjoy what we do, who we work with and whom we work for. It's a symbiotic relationship. Positive energy is contagious, and we hope that entrant businesses - big and small - will inspire other ventures to have a rethink on how they might make the 9 to 5 grind something that is genuinely purposeful and enjoyable."
