The New Statesman to offer digital subscriptions as an employee benefit

By New Statesman

The New Statesman is working with leading corporate and academic institutions to offer digital subscriptions as a cost-effective employee benefit.

Our new offering, “The New Statesman for Work”, is a partner proposition that allows companies to offer a digital subscription as an employee perk. The company or office-wide subscriptions will provide access to the NS’s progressive, thoughtful journalism on domestic and global affairs.

“The New Statesman at Work” launched in a beta phase in May, and has already attracted financial institutions, universities and technology companies as enterprise subscribers. The user-pricing model ensures institutions can provide access to all their employees, at huge discounts. 

The perk will enable employees to enjoy all our great writing, including the best political analysis from Andrew Marr, Louise Perry, Anoosh Chakelian and the rest of the team, as well as thought-provoking essays and commentary from our world-class writers, critics and thinkers including Jeremy Cliffe, Annette Dittert, Adam Tooze, Bruno Maçães, Helen Thompson and John Gray.

Employees will also be able to listen to the latest news from Westminster in the New Statesman Podcast, analysis of global affairs from the World Review team, or enjoy audio recordings of the best of our features and essays in the Long Reads podcast. Institutions that sign up will also receive early-bird and discounted tickets to the New Statesman’s portfolio of events, including: NS Politics Live and Making Sense of Net Zero.
