For the store there are several important things to take into account:

1.- Always think in terms of money, never about points.

When setting up your store think in terms of money and not points. Calculate the value of each item according to its cost or according to the “price” at which you want to set it. If a pair movie tickets costs XX in your local currency, that is the price you should set it in the store.

2.- Have a balance between low, medium and high ticket items.

Have items that have a low value (movie tickets, coffee cards), items of medium value (meal vouchers, flowers, chocolates, etc.) and items of high value (experiences, amusement parks etc.). This will give you a balance for people who are looking to redeem in the short, medium and long terms.

3.- Have non-material items in your branch.

We recommend that you also have items such as a day off, flexible hours, having a mentor, free or VIP parking, etc ... Items that are more about quality of life or benefits and do not directly cost the company and give a lot of value to the employee.

4.- Have a clear budget for the store.

The system includes a calculator that helps you have a clear budget for your store. It is important that you understand that not everyone redeems their points and you can also place redemption restrictions.

5.- Redemption Policies.

Use redemption policies that help reinforce the values ​​and metrics that you want to improve in your company. Examples of these policies are: Restrict redemption to people who have no absences, who have no more than x late arrivals, who have reached their production goals, have no write-ups or administrative records and have an EPIC score of x.

This will allow only team members who really deserve it to redeem their points at the store. These redemption policies must be clearly published in the Community > Organization section.

6.- Remember that the Prize Store is the "icing on the cake" and not "the cake itself".

Always remember and notify your staff that the store is not the reason why they should participate. The reason to participate is to improve the climate and culture of the organization.

The organization is offering everyone a powerful tool to accurately and safely communicate their feelings about themselves and their coworkers. That is the real value of the system. The way in which the organización encourages and appreciates their participation is through the Store, but this is only a small token of appreciation.
