The bespoke portal – which is underpinned by Xexec’s unique online and telephone concierge service – will offer all Cancer Research UK staff (circa. 4,000) 24/7 access to the latest discounts at work or at home. It will also feature regular offers that are exclusive to Cancer Research UK. Xexec’s existing clients will migrate to the new portal over the coming months.

Xexec offers employee over 3,000 discounts including online and instore, cashback, shopping cards and vouchers for lifestyle, health and well-being products and services as well as leading high street retailers. Its concierge service provides last minute tickets to the most in-demand sports, arts and entertainment events across the UK as well as restaurant bookings, flights and hotel rooms.

Building on heritage

“This new suite builds on our heritage in developing cutting edge employee benefit programmes and adds exciting features such as a new recognition platform,” said Jacqueline Benjamin, co-founder of Xexec. “Enlightened, forward thinking businesses place far more emphasis today on creating a sense of community to help increase retention and motivation. Our new services enable that by building a bridge between corporate goals and rewarding individuals.”

Xexec’s innovative Reward & Recognition platform allows companies to recognise individual or team contributions with thank you cards, points, vouchers, gifts, travel awards and experiences. The platform enables organisations to create a fun, community-based social recognition solution that celebrates everything from hard word to exceptional performance, teamwork, long service, project completions, new starters and even birthdays.

Helping staff feel special

“To help us achieve our goals we must be able to celebrate our colleagues’ successes and make everyone working at Cancer Research UK feel special,” said Robin Takoor, reward specialist at Cancer Research UK. “Xexec’s understanding of our organisation, along with their ability to create a bespoke branded engagement and rewards portal for us, has been a key reason for us moving over to their platform. We are really looking forward to rolling this out to our teams across the UK.”

Benjamin added: “We are delighted that Cancer Research UK has chosen us to host its employee engagement and benefit programme. As with all our clients they are free to customise its look and feel to make it their own and focus on the features they want to offer their staff, be it last minute tickets to a Rihanna concert, a discount to the local gym or the chance to buy a gift in recognition of their colleagues”.
