Blueboard's founders, Kevin and Taylor.

Here’s what we believe. If the rewards you give employees don’t feel special, then you’re not really rewarding them. And you don’t really have a recognition program. And you wouldn’t be alone. Transactional rewards like cash and gift cards have been the status quo solution forever, even though they’re not the most meaningful or effective way to recognize people. We’re changing that.

Blueboard employees glassblowing.

Our recognition platform is powered by hand-curated experiences and high-touch concierge services. In seconds, you can send employees on adventures they‘ve always wanted to have. Help them connect with their family and friends. Or just escape the everyday. No matter the person, you can reward them with an experience that lights their fire. And that shows them you’re their biggest fan.

There’s a big blue world out there. It’s filled with one-of-a-kind to once-in-a-lifetime experiences. We’re Blueboard, and we’re here to turn them into rewards that inspire your people to live their best lives.

OUR TEAM

Together, we're a pretty great team.

We've been honored to earn a number of Great Place to Work designations and awards this year, and to share space with so many other outstanding growing companies. For us, earning this kind of recognition is a testament to our culture, and our culture is something that every Blueboarder has played a role in building. 

We’re explorers, adventurers and team builders working hard to transform how companies recognize and incentivize people.
