“John Lewis is a department store that people really love… The fact that our SayShopping customers are now able to shop there with their vouchers is fantastic news!

Iain McMath continues:
“Multi store gift vouchers have always been a popular reward choice for employers as they are simple, cost-effective to implement, and provide staff with the choice they want. With all the retailers who have joined Sodexo network recently, the popularity of SayShopping Pass is growing every day.
Christmas is the time to celebrate and say thank you to employees for their work, and motivate them into the New Year. With SayShopping Pass, you can also be generous and choose to donate your vouchers to Help for Heroes – our preferred charity and you can be assured that 100% of your donation goes towards supporting our wounded.”
