InstantAwards™ is an on the spot, manager-to-employee recognition solution, that enables managers to give monetary awards – in the form of instant shopping vouchers – to their team members to reward great behavior.
Personalizing the reward experience
Receiving an InstantAward™ is an uplifting experience, it highlights the recognition of an employees efforts and often the award has been sent by their manager. The award comes with a personal message detailing why they received the award and often, which values they were demonstrating and perhaps how this directly contributes to the success of the business.
Importantly, and unique to Reward Gateway, award recipients can then choose where to spend their award amount from a huge range of big name top in-store retailers. Employees purchase gift cards and vouchers which can then be used to buy the items they wish.
Reward Gateway has a huge amount of choice meaning that an employee can always choose something of value to them and relevant to their life stage. A first job graduate vs a second child family focused employee will have very different expectations of what ‘an award’ means to them. Once the retailer is selected, their voucher is available to use straight away, removing any time or choice barriers to engagement and enabling an impactful gesture of appreciation.
Helpful proactive alerts!
Once an award has been sent, the employee will instantly receive a congratulations email, onsite and or browser alert to notify them of the award. The employee can choose how they want to be alerted through emails, onsite alerts, browser alerts, etc. Regardless of which alert method they choose to be notified with, they will be directly forwarded to their award.
When they click this link, it will take them straight to their platform where they will view their branded award and personalized message from their manager. There will be a ‘spend value’ button that will lead them to a selection of retailers with which to redeem their award.
When they select "spend value", they’ll be shown their “recognition balance”. They will then have the choice whether to spend all of their award now, part spend it, or leave the award value in their balance until they have accrued more awards. This allows for award accumulation.
Once ready, they can choose to redeem their award with multiple different retailers, helping to make it a highly useful, relevant and beneficial award for every single employee.
