When I'm going to my finance person to talk about ROI, I'm not only going to talk in terms of money. I'm going to talk about how a director is so amped that he and his spouse got to book a staycation with a Blueboard reward that he talked to me about it for two months before he even booked it. Beyond the cost of negative retention and Gallup research, you know what's going to close it for me? This employee’s story, and excitement before and long after the experience, being amped about the spa day he got to share with loved ones through Blueboard.
