WELLESLEY, Mass., Oct. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- GiftCard Partners, Inc. is excited to announce the release of findings from a research report from the Incentive Research Foundation (IRF - http://theirf.org/). The research report provides insights from a recent market survey into how gift card incentives are used by managers to motivate and retain their workforce and how one can implement a new incentive program or fortify an existing one.
Megg Withinton, Managing Partner at Intellective Group and Chief Research Advisor for the IRF, states, "What we've heard frequently when we've talked to HR departments is that managers are the key fulcrum for these programs. It's where the rubber meets the road and where these programs come to life." The managers that were surveyed came from companies of all sizes, across all types of industries, that use gift cards as rewards in their employee programs. The research summarizes how incentives like gift cards counteract the challenges of engaging a diverse workforce using supporting research from market surveys. It also provides a framework for understanding what motivates employees, the challenges employers face, and practical advice for empowering everyone in an organization.
"This research provides an inside look at how other program managers organize and execute incentives in their programs. It supports and confirms what is trending in the market and details how gift cards can be used to change workplace behavior and reach your organization's goals," states Deb Merkin, CEO of GiftCard Partners.
