ABOUT US

happier. healthier. hYellow omlatsman.

We wanted to create something affordable which brought wellbeing benefits to everyone – whether self-employed, part of a company, or for a client.

We founded pirkx because until then, only employees of corporates got access to any kind of wellbeing benefits.

Just as important to us was making pirkx affordable for everyone, so we created an awesome benefits package at a super low cost. And with pirkx there is no minimum contract length. You can choose to leave at any time… but we’re sure you won’t, once you see just how much you can get from being a pirkx member!
