(PRWEB UK) 21 November 2013
David Lloyd Leisure, Europe’s premier health, sports and leisure group, has introduced DL Flex - a discounted health club membership scheme offering UK companies the most cost-effective way to give their employees access to exercise through a payroll scheme.
DL Flex, which aims to enable businesses to help improve the health and fitness of their workforce, can be run as an HMRC approved salary sacrifice scheme either within a flexible benefits programme or as a separate salary sacrifice benefit. Alternatively, companies can choose to run DL Flex as a simple net pay gym loan deduction.
With DL Flex, employees save on average between £120 and £300 a year on gym membership and can choose from individual, couple’s or family membership.
Claire Bettles, David Lloyd Leisure’s corporate marketing manager, commented: “David Lloyd Leisure is delighted to support companies who want to look after their employees’ well-being and help them keep fit and healthy. It is well known that encouraging your teams to be physically active can help lower sickness, boost productivity and improve morale.
“With its unrivalled facilities and services and leading expertise, David Lloyd Leisure membership is a great way to encourage employees to improve their work-life balance and lifestyle through exercise and fitness.”
In addition to discounted membership packages, DL Flex offers National Insurance savings when administered through a salary sacrifice scheme. The scheme allows any company contribution towards the membership costs, which has shown to further increase employee participation.
In addition, every new David Lloyd Leisure member receives a new member package that includes:
- Personal training taster
- Personalised exercise programme
- Gym taster session - including VIPR™, Power Plate and kettlebells
- Racquet sports welcome
- Lose & Shape Up weight loss programme consultation
David Lloyd Leisure, which has 81 clubs across the UK and 10 in Europe, also offers corporate memberships schemes for companies of all sizes, leading expert support with health and well-being schemes, meeting rooms, team building activities, nutrition seminars and back care talks.
