Lyon and Paris-based Club-Employés, a startup specialized in products and services for employees, announces that it has raised €1.5 million from Angelor and BPI. It will use the funds to strengthen its sales teams, develop its marketing approach and continue to develop new features.
Club-Employés, founded in 2017, signals that 54% of employees believe the systems and benefits offered by their company can have a positive impact on their quality of life at work. Today, Club-Employés is reinventing old loyalty models and the inequalities of benefit programmes offered by French companies, and offering a new approach.
Its corporate benefits platform, which is available 24/7 and from any medium (computer, tablet or smartphone), offers a solution for business leaders of large and small companies. Each employee benefits from discounts on hundreds of products and services, up to -80%, across 12 categories ranging from sport, travel, fashion, media and high-tech products. Club-Employés also provides companies with various innovative tools to support senior officials of CSEs (“comité sociaux économiques”), throughout their mandate, such as e-gift vouchers, online shopping subsidies, and legal assistance.
“Today, more than 50,000 employees, spread across nearly 500 client companies, benefit from our services on a daily basis. We are proud to be able to support each company profile in its approach to quality of life at work. The goal of our tailor-made online service is to collate financial flows into a single platform and simplify the company’s benefits policy. A team of account managers supports each of the companies according to their needs and the budgets they can allocate to subsidize certain products or services (such as cultural, sports subscriptions, etc.)”, explains Pierre-Thomas, co-founder of Club-Employees.
Very recently certified as a ‘travel agency’, the startup has already won the attention of over 500 clients including GL Events, WW, Just Eat, Rakuten, Groupe BAP, Dashlane, Hays, EDF etc.
Co-founder Romain Rostagnat says: “We are proud to have the trust of Angelor and the BPI. This sum will be invested entirely on these three components: technology, marketing and marketing. Thanks to our unique positioning, we can envisage a potential market of more than €1 billion in France”.
