Experiences

Rewards that wow. Recognition that ignites.

Our experiential rewards, incentives and gifts are proven to drive long term engagement. That’s because experiences are personal, memorable, and shareable—unlike status quo corporate gifts for employees like cash or gift cards. No matter the person, you can give them an experience they personally want right now and will remember forever.

Speak to employees in their own language of appreciation.

Instead of imposing rewards on employees, our hand-curated experience menu empowers employees to choose what they really want. Maybe it’s a spy-thriller themed weekend in Vegas. Or attending a recording session with a rising musician. Or a trip to the Redwoods for quality time with the family.

The point is, we let employees decide what they personally need right now. Because the more personalized the reward, the more impactful it is.

Turn employees into advocates and build your employer brand with Blueboard.

Give people one-of-a-kind to once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

Our Curation team scours the world to find incredible experiences and impactful gifts for employees—at every budget level and for every personality. Our experience menus are constantly refreshed to reflect the culture of the cities we serve. They’re full of off-the-beaten-path employee reward ideas that get locals excited. And all of our Providers are vetted to deliver on our company mission: to inspire recipients to challenge their comfort zone, indulge their passions, or try something new.

Why experiences?
Because cash rewards are broken.

The clear, absolute value of cash aligns with our need for fairness. This much time and effort should equal this much money in return. But when a reward doesn’t feel proportional to the effort it took to earn—say a $200 gift card for back-to-back 60-hour work weeks—cash shines a spotlight on the disparity. These low value bonuses make employees feel disengaged and even downright resentful. We want your rewards to make people feel truly valued.

Cash is a purely rational reward. It doesn’t hook into our emotions, shape our identity, or create new stories to share—all of the things that make lasting memories. So even in the best case scenario where someone receives a cash reward that feels commensurate to their effort, the impact quickly fades. Why? Because over time, people don’t remember what it feels like getting a one-time bump in their take home. We want your recognition efforts to be remembered for a lifetime.

“We wanted to give employees something that was really unique and special, an experience that they could look back and say, I got to do that because of Vungle."

Companies feel confident talking about the recognition half of the R+R equation, but the reward half is confidential. And employees keep their cash rewards private as well—no one wants to be the jerk who brags about their bonus. This lack of shareability is a big reason why many recognition programs don’t have a larger impact on engagement and performance. Bottom line, people don’t talk about cash rewards so their impact ends with the person who receives it. We want the impact of your rewards to ripple out, motivating far more people than recipients alone.
