The pirkx of being self employed or a business owner

  • 26 Apr 2022

A new service offered by FSB aims to give small business owners the chance to access a range of affordable wellbeing benefits.

When you’re working for yourself, looking after your wellbeing is crucial to the success of your business. We’re enhancing the support we offer to FSB members with our new service, FSB pirkx. The subscription-based platform gives you access to affordable wellbeing benefits for small business owners and the self-employed.


Designed for small business owners

pirkx was founded by a team of small business owners who were frustrated by how complicated and expensive it was to access wellbeing benefits for themselves and their employees. The pirkx team set out to create something affordable that brought wellbeing benefits to everyone, whether self-employed, part of a company or working as a contractor. 

FSB pirkx offers access to a wide range of wellbeing resources that would normally only be available to employees of larger businesses, from healthcare services to shopping discounts. 

Look after your health

Whether it’s a video call with an online GP, a block of six telephone calls with a BACP accredited counsellor or virtual physio at your fingertips, with the pirkx app you have access to a range of health services on-demand. FSB pirkx also gives 
you access to discounted health cash plans, insurance and unlimited mental health support to help you build your resilience skills. 

Create a wellbeing package for your team

As an employer, you can create your own personalised wellbeing package and reward your staff to promote loyalty and retention. When you add your employees to the pirkx platform, they’ll have access to all the same benefits.

With your own personalised pirkx benefits platform, you’ll be able to manage your team’s memberships, create surveys, and promote reward and recognition with their kudos and gift card functionality.


Stretch your money further

Stay active during your workday with discounts on gym memberships across the UK or, if you’ve got a busy schedule, you can join virtual gym classes at a time that suits you. With the addition of a range of shopping discounts, you’ll be able to save on everyday purchases and get discounts on days out. 

No commitments or contracts

When you join FSB pirkx, there’s no minimum contract. You’ll pay one fee based on the number of employees and the subscription type you choose – you have the option of monthly, quarterly or annual, so there is lots of flexibility to suit your business or budget. 

An FSB pirkx subscription offers affordable wellbeing benefits for 
you and your team. To sign up, visit If you’d like to find out more about any of the pirkx benefits before signing up, please get in touch with the pirkx team on 020 3830 7918 or email [email protected]
