HOT INNOVATION AREA: EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT
Reward Gateway aims to be “a world leader in employee engagement technology”. To support this aim, they’ve made sure that their engagement and reward and recognition platform/hub is sticky enough to lure and retain the best talent. “We changed how we used our online employee engagement platform, moving it from being an interesting site to becoming the place to go. We created a diverse range of communication tools – blogs, videos, competitions, polls – completely changing how we got people to the hub,” says group reward director Debra Corey. As a result, the usage of their platform has escalated from 87% to as high as 98%. To keep employees hooked, the team at Reward Gateway also created an in-house weekly show, an innovative format for sharing information using film clips of their employees all around the world. The program has a viewership of 90% of all employees every week.
