176 Million People Visited the Cinema Last Year**
That’s right! In 2019, we all went to the cinema on average at least twice during the year. In fact, visiting the cinema is the UK’s second most popular pastime! Whether it’s to gaze in awe at latest action blockbuster or chuckle our collective behinds off at the best laugh-out-loud comedies, the draw of the silver screen remains undimmed with the great British public.

Think about it: when did you last meet someone who didn’t like movies? Thought not. This is just one of the reasons why offering cinema benefits are such an effective and engaging method of improving employee engagement.
More than 50% of employees say they have left jobs after hearing the siren calls of better benefits elsewhere? (Randstadt) In an ultra-competitive jobs market, the benefits you offer to your employees can be the one thing that sets you apart from your competitors – helping attract the best quality employees and retain them for longer.
It’s not just your attraction and retention rates that can get a welcome boost. Nearly two-thirds of employees who ranked benefits satisfaction as extremely or very high ranked their moral as excellent or very good (EBRI). It’s simple, really: A happy workforce is more productive, more efficient, more focussed.
Employee benefits are only ever truly effective when they engage with people – helping improve quality of life and job satisfaction. And, employees who are more satisfied with their job will often be more productive, stick around for longer, and help attract the best talent the workforce has to offer.
This is where our Cinema Benefits platforms comes in.
70% of all UK employees say benefits are what motivates them and keep them sticking around for longer
Along with our partners at Sodexo, we have over 50 years in the employee engagement game, and if there’s one thing we’ve learnt in that time, it’s that people cannot get enough movie magic. In fact, half of the top 10 employee benefit companies say that discounted cinema tickets are the most desired staff benefit in their product portfolio.
We’ve worked in partnership with some of the world’s biggest companies, universally-recognised brands and exciting start-ups and SMEs; successfully helping them engage, motivate, incentivise and reward their employees using the power of cinema.
