Blueboard Experience

2019-07-03

As an organization we value our employees. The Blueboard experiences program is an opportunity to acknowledge employee tenure and dedication to the organization!

Pros

I also like that it's simple and concise. Employees enjoy the diverse listing of choices for their experiences.

Cons

It would be great to have a notification built into the system to notify me of upcoming anniversary awards versus a manuel process.

New Client

2020-09-09

We launched BlueBoards for 2020, then COVID struck, and we feared that employees would not see the full benefit due to quarantines.

Pros

Experience-based rewards that employees can choose

Cons

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

Finally - a reward that people WANT

2020-07-16

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

Pros

The automated emails and reminders help keep us on track throughout the year.

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

Blueboard makes it incredibly easy to reward employees

2016-10-13

I've experienced 3 new activities (skydiving, aerobatic flying, and glassblowing).

Pros

Easy to browse/search through experiences that I'm interested in

Cons

They're constantly iterating features and UI based on user feedback, so sometimes I'll login and not see an unexpected view.

Best culture amp we have ever used!

2019-07-05

Blueboard has a seamless process to integrate, launch, and train.

Pros

This tool for us here at Jane has revolutionized the way we recognize our family here for their hard work and employee referrals!

Cons

I don't ever like to not put anything in this section. But really there's nothing that I can say that I don't love about Blueboard! I love everything about it!!

More than just money

2020-07-22

Had allowed us to give our employees a chance to experience things they never would have before.

Pros

Experiences versus money. Allows us to give something other than money.

Cons

I would like if the platform could integrate somehow.

Blueboard Super Fan!

2020-07-29

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.

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.

Give employees an experience to remember.

2019-06-27

Blueboard is a fantastic offering, always growing and offering new ideas for new ways to award our team.

Pros

Blueboard allows us to provide employees with an experience of their choosing within our budget parameters.

Cons

My only issue with the program is when I issue Blueboard awards to employees but they never get around to scheduling an experience.

Nothing else compares.

What greater way to make our employees feel valued!

Pros

My favorite thing is how friendly the reps are. They are willing to do whatever (within limits) it takes to help you get the best experience!

Cons

Most of the time they will work with you though.

Using BlueBoard is easily the most rewarding part of my day.

2019-07-03

Pros

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.

Cons

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.

Great solution for a growing global company

2019-07-16

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!

Pros

Blueboard is very easy to use and has a lot of options for experiences in your local area.

Cons

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.

Great Reward Product for Employees!

2020-07-17

Pros

Wonderful way to reward employees for anniversaries or going above and beyond.

Cons

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.

2019-06-26

The team is personal and makes it extremely easy to book an award.

Great platform to drive experience-based rewards in your organization

2019-06-27

Pros

We recognize seven employees through this program: they get a bobblehead in their likeness, a fun experience they can book through a Blueboard concierge, and Blueboard also helps us give a donation to a charity of the winner's choosing on their behalf.

Cons

I wish they offered smaller experiential rewards too, so we can use the platform not only for awards but also for spot bonuses.

Celebrate your Team's accomplishments with Experiences they'll remember

2019-08-27

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.

Cons

We had to find the right time to make it happen and talk with a lot of people.

My staff love Blueboard!

2020-07-21

We were trying to give our staff more meaningful rewards. We were stuck in the rut of giving gift cards that no one could even remember. We wanted to provide more experiential rewards and this was the perfect solution. Blueboard has done that and more. We've also been able to implement an anniversary program which we weren't doing before, and it is a huge hit!

Pros

Blueboard's Customer Service team is also incredible.

Cons

Integration with Outlook calendars would be nice, but not a 'must-have' at all.

Best reward from my boss that I'll always remember

2016-10-13

I had an awesome experience from the moment I was contacted by Blueboard about my reward until the final sunset of my weekend. I feel like I've made a friend with personal concierge, Erica at Blueboard. She listened to me describe our likes and dislikes and tailored a getaway that was planned to perfection. All of our reservations and advance tickets were waiting for us. She was flexible with all of our ideas and was prompt in reply. She did a lot of research to get us the best value for our award. I hope to win future rewards and enjoy the many options available!

Pros

Great customer service!

Cons

Can't think of anything.

Amazing Experience all the way through!

2019-09-23

From picking between all of the options, getting kind and thorough emails from the concierge team and being totally taken care of on the day of my experience (golfing in San Jose), everything about my experience with Blueboard was above expectations!

Pros

The best part of this experience was definitely the ease of onboarding. Getting to select from all of the awesome options to having them booked and organized for me was a unique and amazing experience!

Cons

There wasn't anything notable that I disliked or would want to change about my experience.

Blueboard: A New and Refreshing Way to Reward

2020-07-16

Phenomenal. They have always listened to my ideas to expand on certain things and are just downright cool people to work with. I have yet to experience my own Blueboard (saving it until COVID is lighter) but my feedback from fellow team members is that it was a great experience!

Pros

Not only do they provide experiences that are everlasting, they also provide excellent customer service to EVERY user to create the most exciting and custom event possible.

Cons

The actual usability of the platform could use some updating - I find it difficult to find certain thing between different rewards and being admin and manager.
