Workhuman® has now added ‘Experiences’ to its world-class Store. This new In-Store Booking functionality enables millions of employees worldwide to access hundreds of thousands of additional activity, travel, and accommodation options. ‘Experiences’ is now part of the employee recognition industry’s most expansive catalogue of rewards, all bookable with points on its platform.
Workhuman’s Store is connected to its Social Recognition® platform, which allows employees to recognise each other’s work and earn recognition points. Recognition points can then be redeemed for tangible rewards from a catalogue of approximately 400,000 merchandise items – including electronics, fashion, house and home, garden and outdoor, travel, health and beauty, children, and more – across more than 60 countries.
With the introduction of In-Store Booking, employees can now also book ‘Experiences,’ including their activity, hotel, car rental and flights, as applicable – keeping their entire travel itinerary together and avoiding the hassle of tracking multiple emails from separate travel partners. From walking tours to private yacht rentals, Workhuman’s full Experiences offering will cater to users globally and at virtually every point and desired activity level.
Workhuman’s Store takes the same human-first approach as its Social Recognition solution. The company understands that the reward redemption experience is critical for the success of any recognition programme as it reinforces the original recognition moment and amplifies the sense of engagement and goodwill that the employee feels toward their company. Workhuman has made significant investments over the years to launch the broadest offering of Travel and Experiences with gift card partners including Virgin Experiences, Global Experiences, Royal Caribbean, Hotels.com, and many more. The addition of In-Store Booking functionality takes this to the next level, ensuring every employee is able to redeem for an experience that feels exciting to them, and that makes them feel seen and recognised.
Sarah Whitman, Workhuman SVP, E-commerce, commented:
Workhuman has always kept our ears close to the ground and driven our Store strategy based on the pulse of the marketplace. We know that people derive significant enjoyment from experiences and over the years we have evolved in the ways we bring this category to our platform. Our data has shown that people’s desire to travel and create memories has been reinvigorated as we’ve emerged from the global pandemic. Our expanded Experiences offering creates endless new opportunities for employees to travel and experience new things, driving personal growth and even greater and lasting connections to their colleagues that helped make those experiences and memories possible.
