The Big Lottery Fund to introduce voluntary benefits

The Big Lottery Fund is to introduce a voluntary benefits scheme for its 1,000 UK employees in November. 

The organisation, which is responsible for giving away half the money raised for good causes by the National Lottery, is launching the scheme as a result of feedback from its employee union group. 

Through the scheme, which will be communicated via a branded website and printed magazines, staff will be given an electronic card that can be to used claim discounts at outlets including shops, theme parks, hotels and car hire.

Jasvier Boyal, deputy director of HR at the Big Lottery Fund said that the discounts will be particularly useful for staff in the current economic climate.  “We realise our staff want to enjoy the nice things in life despite the rising cost of inflation. [This scheme] provides a range of discounted products that can support them in that,” he said.

The scheme will be provided by LogBuy.
