Effective employee reward and recognition is crucial for high performing businesses
Disengaged employees can result in 37% higher absenteeism, 18% lower workplace productivity and 15% lower profitability in your business. Scary numbers, right? Employees who are engaged in their work are more productive, motivated, loyal and determined to see the business succeed. But how can you encourage your team to strive for more? How can you create the environment that motivates your staff to perform at the highest level?
The answer is complex, and there are many factors but Incentivesmart helps you deliver one of the biggest parts of the puzzle...an effective reward and recognition strategy.
You may already be rewarding your staff for their efforts. Maybe with ad-hoc rewards, gift cards, or an employee discounts system. But traditional blanket ‘benefits’ can actually demotivate top performers, as they see underperforming employees being rewarded regardless of performance.
Incentivesmart focuses on rewarding and recognising outstanding performance; behaviours that have tangible benefits for your business. Whether this be for smashing sales targets, innovating, savings costs, providing referrals, going the extra mile on a project or being nominated by an appreciative colleague.
Building aligned and motivated dream teams
Teams of buzzing employees who love their job and shout about your business from the rooftops... What more could you want?
Consolidate all of your performance, reward and recognition initiatives into one aligned platform and create a place for your team where they can truly thrive.

Frequently asked questions
We're here to help you get the most out of your employee engagement programme!
Are points-based reward programmes dead?
The short answer - no, points-based programmes are very much still alive!
A study found that 82% of consumers who participate in a points-based programme agree they are more likely to purchase more often.
A separate survey found that 54% of consumers would consider increasing their amount of business with a company for a loyalty reward, and 46% said that they already have.
Earning points that can be spent in an extensive reward catalogue is more motivating than being offered cold cash. Individuals can set their reward goals and work towards earning and building their points.
Additionally, earning points creates healthy competition. Our leader board feature enables users on the programme to see who's earning the most, motivating them to be the top performer.
What's the best way to reward my employees?
Can I integrate my other systems with the reward and recognition programme?

What are the tax implications of incentive and reward programmes?
Rewarding employees for their commitment is an excellent way to boost satisfaction and productivity in the workplace. However, such rewards do attract income tax and National Insurance Contributions (NICs) as a Benefit in Kind (BIK). However, using Incentivesmart can give you significant costs savings and tax efficiencies. There are also some excellent government exemptions and schemes that, if used correctly, can give excellent savings.
