About Blueboard

Blueboard is an employee rewards and recognition system that offers enterprises a user-friendly platform from which to manage and distribute employee rewards. Incorporating request and customized approval workflows as well as reports and budgeting capabilities, Blueboard aims to provide users with a simple and scalable employee rewards management solution.

From the main Blueboard dashboard, managers can receive reward requests, grant approvals and define reward levels. Managers can also review reward activity, calculate budgets and generate reports from the same place. With quick and central access to these features, Blueboard enables managers to engage with employees easily and perform tasks efficiently.

On approval, employees can redeem rewards through the Blueboard catalog. Including hundreds of hand-curated experiences, the Blueboard catalog allows employees to choose their own reward conveniently. Beside the experience catalog, employees have the opportunity to create their own adventure. Blueboard’s experienced Concierge team then organizes all of the logistics of the chosen activity.

    Blueboard Super Fan!

    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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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.

    -Great customer service
    -Fast, friendly account managers
    -Makes it very easy. We simply send the reward and Blueboard takes care of everything else
    -If you're doing a big batch of rewards at the same time, Blueboard can help with a bulk import.

    Pros

    Love how Blueboard's platform makes it possible to reward people with experiences that are remembered, celebrated, and enjoyed every time. It's easy for other bonuses to be deposited and quickly forgotten or worse - become expected. By setting clear standards on how to qualify and earn an experience, people on our team have earned these rewards and been able to choose from a wide range of options (and usually are able to bring along 1 or 2 friends or family members depending on the experience). For example, here's the list of the recent experiences our team has enjoyed: River Rafting, Spa Day, Concert, Snorkel Tour, Harry Potter Show, Legoland, Wine Tasting, Top Golf, Cirque du Soleil, Escape Room, Pottery Class, Playoff Game, Paint Night.

    Cons

    The only tough part (and this isn't Blueboard's fault - this is organizational change) is getting everyone's buy-in to make the transition. All organizations have their own bonus structure and once established, it's tough to change it. People feel tied to it and even if people grumble about it, it's tough to change because everyone has their own opinions on it. We had to find the right time to make it happen and talk with a lot of people. The only thing I wish we did was make the transition sooner. If I start my own company, I'd start with Blueboard at Day 1.

    I had a great experience organizing a trip to Glacier National Park with Blueboard. We were able to find the experiences that worked for me and the concierge was proactive in getting us the best booking with the vendors we used.

    Pros

    I loved the ability to contact a concierge when there was an issue or with any questions

    Cons

    It was tough to understand how the available trips would translate to the specific trip I wanted to take. But once I got into the process this became clear.

    Overall, Blueboard is an excellent product from a company with great customer service that is driven by an employee-centered value system. I highly recommend their service.

    Pros

    The product was easy to use and navigate on both the front and back end.

    Cons

    It would be nice to see visible data planning regarding upcoming rewards in the anniversary engine or other upcoming rewards planned to be delivered at a later date. It would also be nice to see a wider range of experiences, both in-person and virtual.

    My experience has been good. I am still planning my experience. My Concierge has been very flexible with me and I appreciate her patience.

    Pros

    The software is easy to you. I am still exploring reporting as I build data on the program.

    Cons

    I wish my landing page would be in the same document. I think this would enable my winners to share reviews with other winners. My people are very competitive and they like to show off a bit to each other. I think there would much participation with reviews and sharing if they could share with each other in the portal.
