Reward the World™ reflects on The Big Handshake

The Big Handshake was a great success and Reward the World™ is so delighted to have hosted the panel session that discussed “Gift Card, Payment and Loyalty Fraud”.   Denis Huré, CEO, Reward the World™ commented: “Fraud within the loyalty sector is an issue that companies must address. It is recognised that most fraud attempts are coming from account take-overs; therefore, loyalty accounts should be protected to the same degree of security as bank accounts. To that effect, the Reward the World™ digital rewards platform has provided one of the most efficient bank-graded anti-fraud solutions (used by most top banks around the world) with its service since 2016. This solution has protected our clients and their customers from the perils of fraud – but it is still a challenge for a lot of companies within the industry.”

Reflecting on The Big Handshake

On a slightly chilly Tuesday at the end of September, 115 loyalty, gift card, incentive and reward experts made their way to London for The Gift Club’s debut event.  Hosted by our founder, Hadie, The Big Handshake opened its doors at 2pm, ready for an afternoon packed with insightful panel discussions and match-made networking. We welcomed nearly every guest in the first 17 minutes (is that some kind of record?), adorning them with colour-coded name tags and pointing them in the direction of the coffee.  Shortly after that, Hadie made her introductory speech to the sounds of whooping and clapping in the audience. In a nod to the event name, Hadie had the whole room shake as many hands as possible in 30 seconds.

A Modern Approach to Employee Engagement That Delivers Results

Employee engagement continues to be a hot topic in the workplace. For years, companies have been trying to find ways to consistently motivate their employees and improve their performance. However, they've often overlooked two important factors: the level of engagement experienced by an employee can vary from day-to-day or even hour-to-hour, and each employee is different. The good news is that there's a way for companies to create experiences for employees that produce stronger, long-lasting bonds which can lead to higher levels of engagement and connection over time.

The Value In Multi-Choice Gift Cards: A gift for the customer, the retailer & the distributor

There's a perception that gift cards are impersonal; a quick, easy-to-grab option with not much thought, but at The Card Network (TCN), we challenge this idea and instead see an opportunity to give something that is bigger, something that everyone actually wants: the freedom to choose. Research from Harvard indicates that happier people give more, that giving causes increased happiness and that in a lot of cases, it is often the giver rather than the receiver who reaps the biggest psychological gain from a gift. As many of us are navigating a new kind of normal after Covid-19, connecting with others is more important than ever – a simple “I'm thinking of you” can go a really long way.

Innovation in the realm of financial wellbeing and employee benefits

Financial wellbeing is making serious headway in the world of what it means to be employed – but why is this? What really is an employee benefit, and how are propositions changing to accommodate this? Employee benefits are generally non-cash provisions within a company’s reward package that are used for myriad reasons, but, most notably, as a strategic tool to encourage team retention and employee attraction, enhance recruitment, promote key behaviours, and improve wellbeing. Interestingly, the concept of providing employee benefits is sometimes referred to as ‘paternalism’ due to an overriding belief that employers have a duty of care to their employees. Employee rewards and benefits can be traced back to Roman times when funeral costs were covered by burial clubs in addition to the provision of financial support for family members.

The Charity Shop Gift Card – The Perfect Incentive for Gen Z

Generation Z hasn’t really known life without fast fashion but numerous surveys and research has found that most young consumers increasingly care about sustainability.  Our own research conducted by Sophie Williams, a Nottingham University student undertaking an internship with The Charity Shop Gift Card, showed that over 70% of students were actively reducing the items of fast fashion purchased in favour of more sustainable items.  This is supported by research by Vogue Business which found that “the pandemic has made 6 in 10 Gen Z more conscious about the fashion items they buy.”  Unidays, a leading student website, also found that 39% would buy pre-loved because it is more sustainable.
