2020 was a year to be remembered - a year when we laughed, we cried, we supported, and we soldiered on. Many of our employees have had to commit like never before, juggling working from home, ongoing restrictions and an unusual work/home balance. 

Never have employee benefits and rewards been so important to remind your employees of what they achieved and how important they are to your business. We’re sure they are ready for new opportunities, new experiences and new beginnings - so why not start their new year off with some amazing and practical employee rewards? We have rounded up our favourites to kickstart the new year!

Hit the Road in a New Pair of Trainers 

With the new lock down recently announced the good news is that daily runs are still allowed. Make time outside count with a new pair of trainers from New Balance. New Balance offers a variety of styles to suit your needs, with shoes designed for trail running, road running as well as lifestyle. 

They also offer all the activewear you need including joggers, fleeces and light-weight shirts to keep you comfortable and stylish. Staff Treats members receive 20% off any full priced item.

Play it Cool in a New Pair of Sunnies

Now that you’ve got yourself fully kitted out for your daily exercise, make sure you protect your eyes from the glare with a pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses while looking hella cool in the process. Ray-Ban offers various shapes to suit any face, as well as polarised lenses for heightened clarity and colour to reduce eye strain and protect your eyes. 

For those who need prescription lenses - they’ve got you covered! Ray-Ban is offering Staff Treats members 20% off all eyeglasses and sunglasses, as well as free shipping and free returns. 

Keep Track of Your Health

It’s important to maintain both physical and mental health, particularly in a pandemic when we are under certain restrictions. Fitbit offers a range of trackers that not only track your heart-rate and step count while you exercise, but also track your food, weight and sleep. 

Fitbits also have the ability to keep you motivated , nudging you to keep to your goals and reminders to move - this is particularly important when working from home! Fitbit seamlessly syncs with your smartphone helping you to track your progress. Receive 25% off selected Fitbit lines with your Staff Treats membership to stay healthy in 2021!

Upgrade Your Gadgets

Being at home means that you need to have all the right tools at your fingertips, from up-to-date PCs for WFH entertainment - because we all need some downtime. At Currys PC World you can find everything from computers, gaming consoles and phones to home appliances and televisions. 

Curry PC World also offers free delivery and payment terms to help keep you in tech in less than ideal times. They’re offering 7% off any e-voucher purchases - a great employee benefit to make working from and staying at home easier.

Take Time Out to Relax

While working from home has its benefits, it does require you to be more mindful of taking time for yourself to unwind and step away from your desk. A great way to switch off is to switch on - to audiobooks. Lose yourself in tales of faraway lands, gripping crime thrillers or even riveting documentaries with audiobooks from Amazon’s Audible

Start your audio library, exchange books you aren’t enjoying and download to listen offline - all through your mobile device. Audible is offering Staff Treats members up to 50% off monthly memberships, giving you time to experience the magic of audiobooks before making a long-term commitment.

Keep it to Yourself!

Now that you’ve chosen and downloaded the perfect audiobook to keep you entertained - you don’t want your whole family being subjected to it, but having to unravel those earphone wires causes frustration, which defeats the purpose of relaxation! 

Not everyone can afford expensive branded earbuds, which is why GoGroopie is offering a huge 80% off wireless earbuds and charging case to Staff Treats members - so enjoy your music and audiobooks on the go, wherever you are. But hurry - this offer expires 31 Jan!
