Experiencing employee incentives that motivate

THE PROBLEM

Cash referral incentives won’t hit your hiring goals.

Cash is a purely rational incentive. It doesn’t hook into our emotions, shape our identity, or create new stories to share. So even in the best-case scenario, most companies who offer cash incentives see dwindling referral volume just months after their program launch. You have big hiring goals to meet, so you don’t have time to waste. You need an employee referral incentive that creates sustained buzz and excitement.

OUR SOLUtion

Experiential employee referral incentives that motivate (a ton of) participation.

Your reality? You need a program that’s exciting and easy to socialize, but isn’t a burden to administer. Enter Blueboard. We make it easy to incentivize your employees to refer top talent with their choice of a bucket list experiential reward. Like diving the Great Barrier Reef, relaxing at a yoga retreat in Tulum, or chasing the Northern Lights. Real adventures that employees can’t wait to share when they get back, keeping your referral program consistently top of mind.

It’s a win-win situation. You build a qualified candidate pipeline, and your employees get to spend quality time with loved ones making new memories.

Blueboard results speak for themselves
