What gamification rewards can I use to motivate my employees?

  • Updated


Factors you should take into consideration when choosing rewards:

  • Location-specific factors (e.g. premises)
  • Corporate culture (e.g. charitable rewards)
  • Teambuilding (e.g. team rewards)


Ask your employees! Set up focus groups with employees from different departments or conduct an employee survey.

Rewards can be specified per company and location.

*Additional info:
If the premium exceeds 44 EUR/month, it must be taxed as a non-cash benefit (in this case, it makes sense to consult the financial/payroll accounting department in advance in order to find the best possible solution).
