Hard-up workers who are sick and tired of paying rip-off tariffs to energy companies could soon benefit from a new energy switch scheme. The initiative from employee benefits platform PerkBox has been developed in partnership with collective switch experts iChoosr to help workers get better value for money.

The campaign, launched as the ‘Big Perkbox Energy Switch’, provides all Perkbox customers and umbrella companies with the chance to harness the collective buying power of the Perkbox community, securing fantastic energy tariffs for everyone whilst taking the stress and confusion out of changing providers in what is often a confusing and complex energy market.

Research shows that the PerkBox initiative couldn’t come soon enough.

Data from Ofgem reveals  that 57% of households - representing around 13 million people - are on a standard variable rate tariff. If consumers are not in a fixed contract, they are likely to be on their suppliers’ standard variable tariff.  These are often the most expensive deals.

Announcing the launch, George Frost, iChoosr UK Country Manager, said,

 “Collective switching works at its best when trusted brands appeal to their audiences so we are excited to see how the Perkbox community responds. It provides a safe and easy route for people who would not otherwise switch, enabling them to make an informed decision.”

Chieu Cao, CMO and Co-founder at Perkbox comments, “Our objective here at Perkbox is to provide not only luxury perks to our users, but to also help them and their families with their everyday needs. No one can deny that the cost of living in the UK is expensive. But looking at utility bills, there can be a huge difference depending on which provider you go with.

“Over the last couple of years, we’ve built up a fantastic community of members. Now, we are looking to harness the power of the group to bring our users something they otherwise wouldn’t have access to. Ultimately, this is another powerful way to attract the best people and create greater loyalty, leading to high-performance and improved retention”.

To participate, all users need to do is redeem the benefit on the Perkbox platform before the 12th of February. They will then be asked for minimal information about their energy consumption and the rest is handled by iChoosr. Registration is free, without obligation and takes less than five minutes.
