Employee engagement advice from our experts, clients and HR friends

Blog Category: Employee Engagement

Engaging our own employees and those of our clients is at the heart of everything we do at Reward Gateway. We believe that happier, engaged employees make better decisions, work harder for their customers, and innovate more for their organisation. We see this every day in our own people.
We want to see a world where happier, more engaged employees make stronger, more resilient businesses and organizations. We love helping HR and Benefits managers build that world.
Employee engagement is about more than reward & benefits. We believe companies need people who are clear about where they are going, see great management and leadership on a daily basis, understand the connection between their role and the organization’s mission AND feel rewarded for their work. Stay up to date with our vision for employee engagement by subscribing to our blog.

At Reward Gateway, we understand that having strong culture and values has a huge impact on driving successful businesses, and it’s something we’re very passionate about. Our own culture and values are the foundation of everything we do because we realize that it’s only when your employees are bought in that you can have a truly engaged workforce.
Culture can mean a lot of different things to different companies, and we’re really interested in what it means to you. The growing trend in flexible working, creative perks and rising trust in employees as human beings, all point to an exciting future in which the working world looks nothing like the old.

Blog Category: Leadership & Management

Here at Reward Gateway we know that leadership has nothing to do with titles and fame, nothing to do with personal attributes and ego stroking, nothing to do with hierarchy and applause. We believe that leadership is doing more, learning more, and aiming high. It’s about problem-solving, and getting more out of our people so that they believe in themselves and achieve their goals.

by Debra Corey on November 22, 2016


I moved to the UK almost 20 years ago, but there’s still one American holiday that I continue to celebrate, and that’s Thanksgiving.
