As part of Edenred’s service to clients, the company recognise that National Childcare Week is an important time to reinforce the message about the benefits and savings that Childcare Vouchers bring to working parents. Each year, Edenred put together a communication toolkit, including a programme of events in the workplace to raise the profile and educate the workforce in a fun and engaging way.
This year, Edenred are excited about the programme they have in place for next week. Research has shown that many parents are still not aware that Childcare Vouchers can be used for older children. Therefore, Edenred have created new communication materials with an ‘older children’ theme, giving information about the scheme – particularly where parents can spend childcare vouchers for school age children.
The invitation included details of how employees can register their interest to find out more by email or telephone, or how to join the scheme. There is also a competition to celebrate National Childcare Week. By answering a simple question about the scheme, employees can be in with a chance of winning a Nintendo Wii! Clients can also download a leaflet to distribute to their staff. The leaflet includes a QR code, so employees can scan it with their mobile device to register interest, find out how to join or enter the competition.
During the week, which runs 2-9th July, Edenred’s dedicated events team will be travelling up and down the country running events for clients to engage staff and increase participation. These events will have a ‘summer holiday survival’ theme and include workshops and summer holiday survival tips to support parents with older children. Employees are also given the opportunity to enter the competition by attending these events.
Anna Harrison (Edenred Events Team) comments “Last year’s events were a huge success with some great feedback from clients and parents. We are particularly excited about this year as it will be even bigger and better”.
