The Each Person recognition and rewards platform, fuelled by epoints, helps businesses connect better with employees, by showing appreciation in a positive and engaging way.
As a not-for-profit Community Interest Company (CIC), we want to help businesses to build a closer relationship with their workforce through employee appreciation. We provide companies with a recognition and rewards platform which can be used free-of-charge to monitor the recognition activity taking place in their organisation using real-time reporting. We also offer the option to use the “epoints” currency to provide a tangible reward for employees, from the world’s largest reward catalogue, with 100% of investment spent on employee rewards.
We provide businesses with access to services which allow them to operate more effectively. We empower businesses to recognise their employees’ achievements, thereby encouraging employee engagement and increased productivity within the workplace.
We believe that each person deserves to be recognised for a job well done. However, more often than not, businesses fail to look after their most important asset – their employees. This leads to alienation, indifference and negativity.
As the lifeblood of our economy, this can have devastating effects on industry and trade in Britain. In recent years, we have seen a sharp decline in productivity and we are now 15% less productive per employee than our EU neighbours and have seen only a meagre growth of 1.4% in the past decade.
However, we know that when employees are recognised and rewarded, they work harder, they work smarter and they stick around a lot longer and we want to use our recognition and rewards platform to help combat this issue facing our economy. Not only will our actions benefit the businesses who use our services themselves and their respective employees, but also, by being able to operate with increased productivity, there will also be knock-on benefit for the communities and consumers who rely on these organisations.
Introduced by the government under the Companies (Audit, Investigations and Community Enterprise) Act 2004, a Community Interest Company (CIC) is a company which uses its assets and profits to provide benefit to the community or to trade with a “social purpose,” rather than to make a profit. An “asset lock” on such companies ensures that all company assets and profits are only used for its social objectives and limits are set on how much money can be paid to its shareholders.
We know that as many small businesses grow, they can often become more focused on profit rather than their social purpose. In order to reaffirm our commitment to improving the UK workplace and economy, we established Each Person as a Community Interest Company (CIC) in March 2018.
We have an exclusive partnership in place with epoints which means that we are the only recognition program that uses the epoints currency as a means of rewarding employees. This digital currency gives us a unique edge as epoints can be spent on the world’s largest reward range including products, vouchers and experiences.
By utilising epoints as a reward mechanism, individuals are empowered to choose their own rewards. By giving them the opportunity to pick something which has more value to them personally, employee participation and engagement in the scheme is ensured.
We are an official sponsor of The Employee Awards which celebrates its launch in 2018. Similar to Each Person, The Employee Awards is also not-for-profit Community Interest Company (CIC) which shares the same belief that every employee deserves to be recognised, not just the “star” achievers. Leading the way forward, The Employee Awards aims to “shine the spotlight on the nation’s unsung heroes” as the first national award scheme to recognise and celebrate great people doing great work.
As well as this, The Employee Awards plans to launch an Employer Honour Roll later this year where it will highlight employers who are leading the field in employee recognition and ethical employer practices. This will serve as a resource for the prospective employees of our modern world who are looking for more than just a salary in their next role. In our role of sponsor, we shall be supporting the activities of The Employee Awards.
