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.

It’s time to stop treating your employees like a transaction: Be Human

by Sarah Akanbi on December 20, 2016

"Get some more measurables in there."

This was the advice I gave to a friend of mine on her resume when she asked what could be improved.

We always come back to return on investment (ROI), and quite rightly so, as it’s really important. Whatever your organisation’s mission and whatever your personal motivation, it’s perfectly normal to demand that products and business initiatives deliver value back, otherwise why would we run them?

Take a moment and join me as I travel back in time.

It was five or six years ago, and I was sitting in a room full of HR professionals hearing a case study on how a company was using technology as a way to communicate to their staff. I looked around the room and half the people were shaking their heads in disapproval and the other half were looking at the presenter as if they were speaking a foreign language. Hands quickly sprung up, how could you do something so bizarre, set up a company social media site so employees could openly discuss their rewards, send texts to employees as a way to alert them of upcoming deadlines?

10 employee perks and benefits that are even better than a bigger salary

by James Edwards on December 15, 2016

 

6 min read

Before I started working at Reward Gateway, I likely would have struggled to think of even five employee benefits better than a pay rise. I mean, honestly, who doesn’t love a bigger salary? But then I looked  at what ‘Pay rise’ actually meant today in Australia, and it became a lot easier as we’re not talking huge figures.

The reality is that last year the average pay increase was at a 12 year low of 3.4 percent, With the average salary in Australia being $74K we’re looking at pay rises of $2,516. In the UK, this equates to about £1,500, and in the U.S., just under $2,000.
