The Power of Using Incentives and Rewards to Recognize Employees

How creative corporate gifts boost employee engagement

Incentives play an important role in creating a productive and positive environment. A 2018 study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology showed that employees reported more interest and enjoyment in their work when they received frequent rewards for completing small tasks. Corporate gifts are a meaningful way to show appreciation for a job well done, and there’s no shortage of ways to create an effective culture of recognition.

How companies reward their teams with employee incentives

When it comes to showing your appreciation for your team, it’s important to choose employee incentives with a method that works for your company.

At Starbucks, employees receive rewards every week. They can take home a box of K-Cup® Pods, a box of Tazo tea, or a pound of coffee beans. They also receive an ongoing 30% discount on Starbucks products. Facebook takes a different approach, by ensuring its daily work environment is inviting. In every building on its campus, the company’s micro-kitchens are fully stocked with free beverages and snacks.

North 6th Agency leaves it up to employees to choose their perks. The branding and social media agency sponsors the Pace Points program, in which employees earn points for achieving certain targets. They can use those points to choose from more than 60 rewards.
