iPerks - A recap of numbers for 2022

We're always looking to give back to our contractor community, and our iPerks platform was introduced to do exactly this! Here's a recap of how our clients used the platform in 2022, and how you can incorporate it into your 2023 plans.

At Icon Accounting, our mission is to continuously strive in offering the most valuable contractor support and one-stop shop experience to the Independent Professional industry. Without a doubt, our iPerks platform has been a valuable contribution to our offering since 2020, making it possible for our clientele to focus on themselves in a convenient way.

By definition, iPerks is an exclusive value-added proposition to all Icon Accounting clients designed to provide all the supports, outside of the expected compliance, taxation, and exceptional service expected, that you could possibly need to have the best contracting experience. With over 4,000 professional courses, 1000’s of retailers and discounts, as well as bespoke wellness programmes.

In 2022, we seen almost 85% of clients accessed the platform, and with the contracting sector going from strength to strength this year, we’ve compiled a list of the top benefits used by our clients so far – it may persuade you to start that new hobby, enrol in that course, or to simply ensure you focus on you for the remainder of 2023!

Savings

We have always prided ourselves on giving our clients the maximum retention percentage of their income as possible. The lifestyle and savings feature of iPerks is an extension to this, allowing our clients to avail of competitions, monthly offers and everyday savings with living and luxury brands.

The most popular savings for our clients in 2022 where from the travel, entertainment, fashion, and technology categories.

We we’re also delighted to see an increase in the use of the savings feature in 2022, which resulted in our clients saving over €130,000 that year alone.

Learning

It is no secret to those that have worked in the industry for several years, that up-skilling is a necessity when it comes to having a successful contracting career. With over 4000 courses available on iPerks, 92% of which are completely free – there is something for every single client to add to their existing skillset.

With such a strong representation of our clients in the IT space, it is unsurprising to report that two of our most popular courses taken were in cyber security and programming.

However, we were surprised, and delighted, to see that with the work life balance contracting has offered our clients, this has allowed them to focus on developing skills outside of their requirements of their role. Healthy Cooking Made Easy, Cryptocurrency, Blockchain, along with Survival Spanish for Beginners, were top of the leader board as courses contractor’s completed in their spare time.

Wellbeing – POWR in your hands!

POWR has made it possible for our clients to focus on wellbeing in a convenient and preferable way. 2022 was the year which we seen our clients challenge themselves, with an increase to over 600 of our clients taking part on the daily challenges and tasks which the platform has to offer.

The focus for contractors in 2022 was Food and Nutrition, with many taking a key interest in the Recipe of the Week. Following shortly behind was a focus on life skills, and the emotion wellbeing features available.
