Employee Spot Rewards Program

Spot Rewards

Motivate Your Employees
With On-the-Spot Rewards

If you’re still running out at lunch to buy gift cards for your on-the-spot employee rewards, consider our easy-to-use Hawk Marketplace™ instead. It’s an online reward ordering platform that gives you over 700 choices, so you can still offer a variety of options to your recipients without leaving the office. Our own research has shown that, for a $10 reward:


prefer a physical prepaid reward card


prefer a digital prepaid reward card


prefer an egift card


prefer a physical gift card11

Speed of reward delivery is important when you want to recognize specific short-term accomplishments. That’s why Hawk Marketplace lets you order one or one million rewards (or any number in-between, of course!), delivered to individuals or in bulk for in-person distribution. Options include closed-loop gift cards, open-loop prepaid reward cards, or filtered cards that can be spent at multiple merchants—all available in physical and digital forms. In fact, digital and mobile rewards are an excellent option for employees who prefer them.

According to 2017 Attacoin research, “90% of people who work in places with effective employee rewards programs agreed with the statement, “My work makes a difference.”10 Of course people like to receive rewards, but these rewards must be desirable to make a favorable and lasting impression. 

Our research also revealed that employees who receive $10 gift or egift cards include Food & Beverage and Music & Audio Content in their top categories. Think of these incentives as being experiences: it’s coffee and a donut or a few new songs, not ten bucks that blends in with the other cash in your employees’ wallets.

Employee spot rewards are a simple and effective way to show your exemplary employees how much they matter to you. At Hawk Incentives, we make it easier for you to offer a better incentives experience.

We provide end-to-end solutions, including platforms, rewards and white-glove service.
