The Reward Platforms category has seen a total overhaul since last year, with all-new entrants in the winners’ list. More and more employers around Australia are beginning to understand the importance of effectively incentivising their employees.
While some might argue that a wage and good working conditions are rewards in themselves, this is an increasingly old-fashioned view. Given that every job offers these, it’s crucial to invest in new ways of keeping employees effectively engaged on the job.
For different businesses this will take different forms. Larger companies tend to have more resources for such initiatives, but smaller enterprises needn’t feel left out. By partnering with the right provider, businesses can still incentivise staff. Making employees feel appreciated within the workplace is hugely important for staff retention, and those who invest wisely will reap the rewards in the future.
Since 2012, Employment Hero – gold medallist for 2018 – has been providing a reward platform for organisations around Australia. Employment Hero has a strong proposition for small and medium-sized businesses, providing cost-effective solutions to rewarding employees and driving engagement. Its product road map has shown significant expansion in the past 12 months, with many exciting features that will continue to drive value for customers.
