As the UK’s leading diabetes charity, employing around 400 members of staff, its mission is to work in partnership to support those living with diabetes, prevent Type 2 diabetes, make research breakthroughs and ultimately find a cure. Diabetes UK approached Xexec with a view to developing and implementing a cost effective employee engagement strategy that would address the challenge of engaging and motivating their staff.
Cancer Research UK (CRUK) puts a huge emphasis on employee relationships. Despite being one of the larger and better-known charities, they are still bound by financial constraints and the ongoing universal challenge of motivating and engaging their staff. Hence, CRUK has always had to be more innovative with the way that they reward and motivate their team. Not only that, but CRUK has loyal dedicated staff who often go far above and beyond what is expected of them, because they feel so passionately about the organisation. CRUK wanted to be able to reward these efforts by offering their staff a bespoke employee discount portal, housing thousands of discounts and benefits.
The Xexec / Sytner offering has been a great success with an extremely high engagement level amongst staff and outstanding website usage. Sytner has achieved the impressive feat of featuring on the Sunday Times ‘Best Big Companies to Work For 2016’ list in a top-5 position and is working with Xexec to do everything possible to ‘attract, motivate and retain the very best team members’.
