Reward Employees with Custom Company Perks

published: July 26, 2019

Create Custom Company Perks for either specific groups of employees, or individual employees. Perks are customized rewards that a Program Owner can create under the program settings menu. Custom Company Perks can be something as simple as offering employees the boss' parking spot for a week, or a free catered company lunch. The sky's the limit with the Applauz Custom Company Perks feature!

How Perks works:

  • As the Program Owner or Manager, you set the Perk and its Points cost
  • Choose What you wish to offer and customize your Perk listing with a description, Points cost,  an optional deadline and quantity (if applicable)
  • Applauz deducts a 25% fee in Points from the value of the perk upon redemption. This fee is withdrawn from your Company Points Bank as a service charge once the Perk is actually redeemed
  • 75% of the Perk’s cost in Points will be redeposited into your Program's Points Bank upon redemption and can be re-attributed to your program participants
  • Once a Perk is created employees of the company will receive an email informing them of the new Perk
  • Employees use their own earned Applauz Points to purchase these Perks
  • If a Perk is redeemed, the owner or manager will get notified via email
    • Once a Perk is redeemed, the owner or manager must then choose between Fulfilling or Cancelling the redemption
  • Once the decision is made by the owner or manager, an email notification is sent to the employee indicating whether they have acquired the perk, or if their points have been reimbursed due to cancellation
There are two distinct types of Perks you can choose from:

Personal Perks

A Personal Perk is a custom reward that can be given to individual Employees. Its Points cost is totally and always up to you to decide. An example of a Personal  Perk could be a premium parking spot, a day off of work, or something that individual employees can redeem from the company, such as (company) branded t-shirts and mugs.

Group Perks

Group Perks are intended to be awarded to a group of Participants (employees) who collectively contribute their Applauz Points to “redeem” the Group Perk from the marketplace. Examples of Group Perks could be a catered BBQ lunch for everyone. Everyone who contributed their points to redeem this Perk would be included as guests at the barbecue lunch. Group Perks can be great way for your Recognition Points to subsidize your Company culture events and initiatives.
