Overall rating

Benefits:

Experience-based rewards that employees can choose

Drawbacks:

No issues, but I am always interested in more reporting and forecasting capabilities.

In sum:

We launched BlueBoards for 2020, then COVID struck, and we feared that employees would not see the full benefit due to quarantines. BlueBoards quickly pivoted to provide in home experiences. Both in-home and traditional experiences have been very well received by our employees, with overwhelmingly positive feedback to date.

«Blueboard Super Fan!»

Overall rating

Benefits:

Very easy to implement, navigate, our employees love it, and is super innovative in this space.

Drawbacks:

There are opportunities to improve the "reward gifting" process - ideally I'd like to see the ability for someone like a system admin or People & Culture Business Partner be able to send a reward on behalf of an Exec Leader.

In sum:

I happened to meet one of the [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] of Blueboard at a conference and instantly was intrigued by the company's mission and alignment with the kind of employee experience we are working to deliver. From there we were assigned to one of the best sales reps I've had the pleasure to work with - not pushy at all, followed up just the right amount and after a long journey (held up in budget approvals) finally was able to pull the trigger and sign the contract. The implementation team was incredibly helpful and we launched it on time and with great fanfare.

Benefits:

Wonderful way to reward employees for anniversaries or going above and beyond. Easy to use and great customer support. Feels exciting to scroll through their list of well-put together options.

Drawbacks:

Not as many choices as before COVID, but since the rewards never expire you'll be able to save your reward until travel is back on the menu again.

Overall rating

Benefits:

Blueboard is very easy to use and has a lot of options for experiences in your local area. We have offices in 7 cities around the world, and needed a solution that would feel consistent across the board. Having a single company handling all the rewards made is so much easier than us trying to figure things out in each individual market!

Drawbacks:

Because it's a white glove concierge service, there is normally a short period of time between your request for an experience and hearing back from someone about its booking details. We have learnt that over time, it's important to explain this aspect to our employees so they don't expect it to be a brief transactional pick and go like an online purchase.

In sum:

The staff at Blueboard is absolutely amazing! Every question we have ever had about our account or the platform has always been answered immediately - probably the best part about our partnership!

Benefits:

The software was so simple to setup and use. It only took one training session to have a coordinator on my team manage the entire program. The automated emails and reminders help keep us on track throughout the year.

Drawbacks:

I wish there was a bit more customization options in the social media post generator.

In sum:

This was easy to setup, no pressure billing options and our employees truly value their rewards.

Overall rating

Benefits:

The software is easy to use. You can manage the reward budget across several "finance buckets" and see up-to-date data from the dashboards at any time. Tracking the progress of an employee's reward from sent, to redeemed, scheduling, scheduled, completed and feedback is very helpful in addition to the metrics from the feedback.

Drawbacks:

Integration with our HRIS system to automate updates would be an improvement. I would also like to see a way to handle smaller awards. Currently, $150 is the smallest experience available. If they could find something in the $50 range we could use this system instead of gift cards.

In sum:

Our account manager has been fantastic! The employees enjoy working with the Blueboard concierges to decide on an adventure and schedule the event. We are using this program during the Covid pandemic and I want to mention that there are many in-home experiences for the individual or family. This has been a positive experience for everyone.

Overall rating

Benefits:

I thoroughly enjoy when my coworkers are sharing their photos of their trips they've taken thanks to BlueBoard. Not only do they seem refreshed from a wonderful vacation, they seem thankful and are excited to encourage other employees to utilize our referral program. There are several use cases for BlueBoard my company has yet to explore, but we are brainstorming how we can utilize BlueBoard's services to provide even more rewarding experiences for our employees.

Drawbacks:

There is a bit of a delay between when I've request our account to be filled and when my account actually reflects the funds, but that could be because of my own internal team's ability to pay invoices quickly. I'm happy that our whole company is excited about the referral rewards program thanks to BlueBoard, however BlueBoard isn't a fully global product so unfortunately not all of our employees can benefit from the program.
