Bonus points are an instant and easy way to recognise and thank staff for their hard work, which increases app engagement and improves retention.
We have found that organisations who award bonus points regularly have a higher average uptake than those who don't use bonus points.
The most popular reasons for awarding bonus points are:
Covering extra shifts
Positive client feedback
Making a difference during COVID-19
Thanks for hard work
