Local Authority Discounts is a new website for council employees, saving them money on a wide range of goods and services, all completely free of charge.

With recruitment and retention a major issue in the public sector, Local Authority Discounts gives the employer an opportunity to show commitment to staff by promoting the service, which it is calculated can save those who use it 10% of their disposable income. From holidays to fashion, financial services to computing - there are over sixty national companies offering genuine discounts to local authority employees.

All promotional materials are provided free of charge including posters, postcards and customised e-mails. LAD will also visit council offices to promote the service direct to staff and register them on the spot. There is very little admin surrounding the implementation of our service, and once it is in place councils will be designated an account manager who will provide them with materials as needed.

We have already begun working with a number of councils, including Bristol City Council, Cornwall CC and Rotherham MBC. These are employers wanting to offer more to their staff, and Local Authority Discounts is considered to be the perfect resource for this. John Stenhouse, personnel officer at Northumberland CC, enthuses: 'Local authorities are unable to offer the discounts that are possible in the private sector, but through Local Authority Discounts our staff have been able to benefit from savings across the high street. Staff at all levels are very enthusiastic about the service, which is enabling us to provide benefits and in return see greater staff loyalty and increased motivation.'
