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.
Blueboard experiences aren’t sanitized events that survived the corporate gauntlet. They are powerfully personal, life (and business) changing moments that people remember forever.
"We had a wonderful time. My wife and I really enjoyed both cities. Our favorite part of traveling is sampling the food of different cultures, and there was a lot of great food."
"I wanted to let you know what an amazing time I had in South Africa and to say thank you so much for curating the best holiday I have ever had in my 54 years on this earth!"
"Many thanks for arranging our special dinner. The chef was amazing and the food was incredible, all cooked from scratch which was very impressive."
"She said yes! The room at the Harvest Inn is fantastic. She absolutely loved it. You helped a lot with the proposal! Thanks again. I hope I get another Legend Award soon."
"We hiked and hiked and then hiked some more! The landscape was amazing and the people were so friendly. I wish we were still there."
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.
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.
From meaningful recognition, to motivating incentives, to thoughtful employee rewards, Blueboard is the best way to invest in your employees and build excitement around recognition.Explore our platform
