Key finding: Experiential rewards have 3.8x more impact on employee experience.

When it comes to what employees say they want, cash rewards and gift cards top the list. It makes sense—these rewards are flexible, fungible, and deliver immediate gratification. But here’s the wild thing: Our research shows that experiential rewards have nearly 4x more impact on the employee experience than any other type of reward, including cash and gift cards.
