Reward Gateway, is a comprehensive and fully customisable HR platform, with over 2,000 employee discounts at its core. Over 900 companies use Reward Gateway as a central hub to engage their staff, explain employee benefits, promote culture and values, and say thanks with discounts on everyday purchases to big ticket items.
We believe people don’t come to work to be marketed to. The old school of employee discount programmes don’t work because the offers aren’t genuine. Employees don’t trust them or use them. We changed all of that back in 2007 when we turned the model on its head.
Our business model is based on 100% retailer independence, meaning that the full savings we are given from our relationship with retailers are entirely passed on to each employee we service. We still negotiate hard and get all the fees and commissions we can from them, but we give it all back to your employees so you can genuinely say that your employee discount programme has amazing, unbeatable deals. In return, we charge you, the employer – a fair price for a fantastic service. That’s what we’re all about.
The SSAT and Reward Gateway have been working together for several years to provide schools with an affordable employee benefit scheme tailored to their needs. Staff can make their salaries go further by saving money at many of the UK’s best retailers as well as on childcare and healthcare.
With over 100 schools, academies and colleges already signed up to SSAT Rewards, Reward Gateway have got lots of experience in making programmes work for the education sector.
Reward Gateway have a dedicated education team who work alongside schools to ensure all of their needs are met. From their first enquiry, schools will be given an account manager who will support them through the entire process, helping them to build a programme and engage their staff.

“Tailored branding for each individual school and academy makes such a difference to engagement with the programme. If it was the generic Schools Network logo I was seeing on all the posters and flyers I wouldn’t think it could specifically benefit me or the staff at my school. I think it’s fantastic that Asperity includes this element of its service to all members of the SSAT despite the discounted rate. We’re really getting our money’s worth!”
Eddie Neighbour, Deputy Head Teacher, Slough Grammar School
“Since the introduction of William Edwards Rewards in September 2011, the school has already seen a return on its investment. 84 staff regularly access the reward/discount and childcare voucher schemes and the school has also benefitted from a workforce who know that their employer is investing in them and providing many opportunities to save money in their day to day lives away from school. With this in mind I would definitely recommend SSAT Rewards, delivered by Asperity to other schools.”
Peter Melville, School Business Director, William Edwards School
