The company already used Empuls in their HQ operations division, and given its proven ability to address engagement challenges, they implemented the platform in the holiday experts department as well.
Prior to adopting Empuls, reward and engagement initiatives were managed manually, resulting in inefficiencies, limited visibility, and scalability issues. The company sought to overcome these obstacles and establish a more streamlined and comprehensive employee engagement approach tailored to their evolving organizational needs.
In January 2023, the travel pioneer employed Empuls to automate its Rewards and Recognition (R&R) program. Familiar with the platform, they were confident that this would streamline the process and reduce administrative burdens while creating a seamless employee engagement experience for its teams.
Initially, the primary focus was on Spot Awards, designed to deliver instant recognition and reinforcement for achievements related to customer centricity, sales target achievement, and customer referrals.
Since adopting Empuls six months ago, the company has integrated many of Empuls’ capabilities into their employee engagement and recognition initiatives.
What began as an automated Rewards and Recognition (R&R) program rapidly evolved into a comprehensive framework that catered to various aspects of employee well-being. The enthusiastic adoption of Empuls' mobile app opened up a myriad of engagement possibilities via Empuls' social intranet.
