Digital Detox, has selected Cushon – provider of the world’s first net zero now pension - as its workplace pension provider. This further affirms the company’s ethos of focusing on people, the planet and technology.
Digital product agency Digital Detox embeds sustainability across its business and creative output and so Cushon, with its world’s first net zero now pension and ESG voting functionality is a natural partner. As a fintech, Cushon has developed an app-first approach to pensions, enabling Digital Detox employees to view and manage their pensions in real time.
Through the Cushon app, Digital Detox employees will receive notifications when contributions are paid into their pension. They can easily change their contributions and transfer other pension pots in. Additionally, employees have access to Cushon’s workplace ISAs so they have the opportunity to save for other events, not just retirement. These can be managed together with their pensions all in the same app. Cushon’s in-app ESG voting functionality empowers employees to make their voice heard at the companies in which their pension pot is invested.
Donovan Justice, CEO and Director at Digital Detox, said: “As a humanity-led digital product agency providing solutions to a community engaged with social responsibility it was a natural step for us to keep our employee benefits in line with our company and employees’ beliefs. We revolve our work around three core pillars- technology, our planet and people - and we inherently care about what we do. It’s up to everyone to embrace responsibility and we find that very rewarding. Our employees can now save for retirement on a platform they are excited to engage with, that cares for the planet as they do, and that aligns with their core values - all without compromise on returns. As an employer, I’m proud to offer that to Digital Detox employees.”
Ben Pollard, CEO and Founder of Cushon said: “It’s a sad fact that the average UK pension helps finance 23 tonnes of CO2 emissions a year, that’s equivalent to running nine family cars or burning 1,100 coal fires a year. But as we’ve shown with the launch of our world first net zero now pension, this doesn’t have to be the case. Pensions can be a force for good and employees can save for the retirement they deserve while helping tackle climate change. It’s a great reason for employees to feel more engaged. Digital Detox is a company that recognises this and it’s great to have them on board.”
