Inspire your workforce to excel with reward and recognition

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 employee reward and recognition strategy.

Traditional blanket ‘benefits’ can actually demotivate top performers, as they see underperforming employees being rewarded too, regardless of performance . 

We concentrate on rewarding outstanding performance; recognising those behaviours that have tangible benefits for your business.  Whether that's for smashing sales or service targets, innovating, saving costs, providing referrals, going the extra mile on a project or being nominated by an appreciative colleague.

Frequently asked questions

We're here to help you get the most out of your reward and recognition programme!

Are points-based reward programmes effective?

Points-based programmes are proven to be extremely effective in driving preferred behaviours.

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?

Giving your employees a financial incentive may seem like the obvious and most simple reward choice, but there is a plethora of academic and practical evidence that points to cash being far less effective when it comes to driving everyday behaviours. Not only is it impersonal and unimaginative, but it also less memorable and expensive.
Cash gets lost in the day to day and is rarely spent on a luxury, more likely paying off a credit card or the milk man. Offering rewards which are memorable form a stronger link between the reward and the behaviour that earned the initial recognition, thereby making it more likely that the behaviour will be repeated. 

Can I integrate my other systems with the reward and recognition programme?

Yes, you can integrate other business systems with our employee engagement programme. Get in touch with our team to discuss your requirements.

Can I see an example of an employee rewards programme?

Of course, we'd love to show you an example of an employee reward programme in action! Book a demo and we can show you an example, as well as the features and functionality of our platform.

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.
