Recipients get to choose something they actually want
Employee recognition is at its most effective when employees get rewards they value. And to do that, you need to offer enough choice to appeal to everyone.
That’s where Guusto’s flexible employee gift card program stands out. Your employees can choose to redeem their Guusto gifts at over 100 merchants offering a diverse array of different rewards and experiences.
From retailers to restaurants, cinemas to streaming providers, and everything in between, your employees can find something they truly want, no matter who they are. As a result, they will value and appreciate their rewards much more, maximizing the impact of your employee recognition program.
When it comes to recognition, employee gift card programs have a number of advantages over traditional points-based or catalog programs:
Remote and hybrid work environments can make putting together effective employee recognition programs challenging. How do you find rewards that can be easily delivered and redeemed by employees no matter where they are located?
Guusto’s solution solves this problem by providing a fully digital, remote-friendly option for employee recognition. Gift cards can be redeemed at 60,000+ global merchant locations, meaning all of your employees are catered to, wherever they are.
Digital gift cards are also an environmentally-friendly option. Single use, plastic gift cards create as much as 60 grams of CO2 per card, generating 5.8 million kilograms of PVC waste per year in the United States alone.
At Guusto, we believe that companies of any size and means should be able to benefit from employee recognition. Gift cards offer a scalable employee recognition and rewards solution that can fit any budget.
You can allocate budgets to your managers and teams to recognize their employees. Team members are also free to combine gifts, or divide them between merchants.
Not only that, but there are no markups, minimums or other additional fees. Unclaimed gifts are also credited back to your account in full.
Many other employee recognition platforms use points-based systems to recognize employees. Unfortunately, these systems are often confusing, with no tangible value attached to the points. It can also take a long time to accumulate enough points to redeem something of value, and rewards are often from catalogs with limited choice and large markups.
The end result is a reduced impact on employee engagement and employee motivation. Employee gift cards from Guusto, on the other hand, have a clear monetary value, and can be redeemed instantly at any merchant the recipient chooses. It’s faster, offers more choice, and feels more rewarding.
