IAT CEO discusses employee recognition

Employee Benefits magazine speaks to IAT CEO

Employee recognition schemes can play a significant role in engaging employees. According to the 2016 Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM) and Globoforce employee recognition survey: employee experience as a business driver report, published in December 2016, 90% of employers found a values-based recognition programme had a positive impact on employee engagement, and 71% saw a positive effect in terms of staff retention.

Matt Norbury said: “Values-based recognition is best delivered in the moment to ensure that everyday successes are celebrated as, and when, they happen. This allows employers to instantly thank staff for behaving in a manner aligned with their values, and reinforces the behaviour that the employer wants to promote.”

Each Person recognition and rewards

epoints launches new look employee engagement scheme

The unique features and benefits of the recently relaunched employee reward, recognition and wellness scheme, epoints Employee, from IAT has featured in Personnel Today.  The employee engagement scheme offers a host of new features, which give employers and employees an engaging way to inspire individuals, peers and teams. Employers can recognise employees with ecards and can reward them with the epoints currency, which can be spent on the widest range of rewards in the world.

The new employee engagement programme, recognises and rewards three main outcomes:
1. Tangible Targets – whether it’s sales, customer service, business efficiency, acquisition or retention – setting clear, measurable targets can be very motivating for employees, particularly when there is a tangible reward for hitting them in the form of additional epoints! Our customer survey found that 96% of employers thought that epoints had increased the motivation of their teams and 87% reported a specific improvement as a result of adding epoints to targets

2. Magic Moments – whether it’s recognising long service, a birthday, or just saying ‘thank you’, non-monetary value epoints e-cards can be shared across the workplace by all staff levels, be it by management or peer to peer – encouraging positive communication, recognition and employee engagement

3. Living Well – wellbeing and wellness is a hot topic within the workplace, and encouraging a healthy, environmentally-savvy workforce is beneficial to all parties and improves employee engagement. Do you have specific recycling or carbon footprint reduction targets? Or encourage walking, running or cycling to work? Through the epoints Employee engagement scheme, your team can record their own wellbeing activities to top up on points.

Matt Norbury, CEO and founder of IAT, says: “Research shows that happy staff are more productive, have less absenteeism and are more profitable than their peers*. That’s why we’re so excited to introduce our truly flexible reward solution, epoints Employee. In a space flooded with ‘me too’ and one size fits all benefits, the epoints employee engagement scheme gives your workforce the freedom to enjoy rewards when and where suits them, while being able to gain epoints outside of the workplace too!”

Importantly there are no set up or maintenance fees, and the admin platform is simple to use for all.

Unlike many rewards platforms, the epoints employee engagement scheme also offers individuals the opportunity to bolster their points outside of the workplace with a range of everyday activities such as shopping on and offline, playing games or referring friends. They can also collect and win epoints via partner deals app bigDL. With bigDL, employees can find the best deals across the high street and online and can collect when taking advantage when purchasing the deals or win them via the in app game Spin the Wheel.

Norbury, continues: “With epoints Employee, we have created a platform that is not only scalable, but delivers too. Offering digital and mobile access, and real-time reporting, epoints Employee will engage and motivate your workforce, while driving demonstrable, positive organisational performance.”
