Employee Points Programs - defined

employee points based incentive programsPoints-based employee reward programs are powerful and exciting motivational tools, allowing management to reward employees with Points for their actions and  performance, over times.

With this type of recognition program, employees usually will have multiple opportunities to earn point-awards for their various achievements.

Points based employee reward programs often use a full-function online system, but when your award budget is too low, a simple paper-based option is also available (not using an online system). Regardless of which system is used, the goal is the same: award points for desired activities, and allow those points to be accumulated and spent on merchandise awards of the employee's choice.

The following descriptions of Points-Based employee reward programs may help you decide which option is best for your organiztion.

Paper-Based Points Program

A paper-based type of reward program is the lowest cost solution - but involves more work for the program administrator. If your award budget is small and you must keep the administrative costs to almost nothing, a paper based point awarding and tracking system may be your best option.

The program administrator manually tracks point-awards and point balances for each participant. Accumulated points can be redeemed for awards which are selected from provided, printed catalogs, or by using links to our online tier-level (points) catalogs provided by Select-Your-Gift. Award redemption requests must be submitted to, and approved by the program administrator prior for fulfillment. All redeemed awards can be sent directly to the employee's home.
