HR Rewards & Recognition Platform secures £500,000 loan

Wokingham-based HR rewards and recognition platform, Each Person, is the latest company to be supported by the Thames Valley Berkshire Funding Escalator. The company has secured a £500,000 growth loan which will support continued software development and enable the recruitment of 7 local hires in 2023.

Each Person is a leading employee engagement platform which combines the latest technology with behavioural science to help businesses build and maintain engaged and motivated workforces.

The company offers a range of features designed to foster a positive workplace culture and improve employee engagement. These include customised surveys, interactive dashboards, and a range of tools to help businesses measure and track employee engagement levels over time. The rewards offered to employees are sourced from leading high street and online retailers and Each Person is proud to be the first reward platform to offer a Diesel Card which can save employees £200-£300 per year off their diesel bill.

Ensuring people feel recognised for their hard work and talent is vital, especially when recent statistics show that regular recognition lowers staff turnover by 31%.

Matt Norbury, CEO at Each Person, said, “Our mission is to help organisations create highly engaged, motivated and productive workplaces by enabling employers to recognise and reward their people through providing perks at work. A free coffee now and again is okay, but a rewards platform that provides benefits for people’s mental, physical and financial wellbeing whilst also battling climate change is something that really will make a difference to workplace culture. We’re determined to make Each Person respond to the needs of the time which is why we plant a tree for every employee that joins our scheme, give a percentage of our profits to eco projects, and why we are incredibly proud to be the first HR tool to offer a Fuel Card as part of our package. This latest funding will help us continue to push our business forward as we expand and take on even more clients.”

John Gaudoin, Investment Manager at The FSE Group added, “Each Person is an impressive company with a strong leadership team who have already signed major clients such as the NHS, Virgin Active, BUPA, American Golf and Prezzo. They have been cited independently as being transformational for clients and it’s easy to see why when viewing the quantity and quality of what is offered to employees. The FSE Group is delighted to support Each Person as they hire local talent and expand their reach within the HR sector. We wish them the very best of luck with what will surely be an exciting year ahead.”
