In 2009, Chubb decided to extend its rewards offering through a new programme called ‘Living the Brand Rewards’. Keen to enhance its ‘Living the Brand Rewards’ and ‘Long Service Awards’, Chubb turned to Edenred’s Compliments Select; an online reward platform that allows clients to issue almost any kind of reward, of any value, to any recipient, in any location, with an unbeatable selection of reward options available from the Compliments brand.
Michelle explains why Chubb was attracted to Compliments Select. “The objective of our scheme was – and is – to provide all managers with a suite of immediate rewards to allow them to recognise employees, who exhibit exceptional behaviour and actions in relation to the Chubb “Brand Values”, she says.
“The scheme is not seeking to incentivise people to achieve specific business objectives; we already have a performance bonus programme for that. This programme seeks to encourage behaviour that will ultimately enable the company to achieve its goals”.
Through Compliments Select Chubb was also able to offer fixed amounts for 5, 10, 15 and 20 years of employment for its Long Service Awards, and Compliments Select also allowed the Living the Brand Awards to present a variety of values depending on what the employee has done – on an ad hoc basis – with values typically ranging between £25 and £100.
In addition to the convenience for incentive managers, feedback from Chubb employees has been positive; with the Long Service Awards, employees were thrilled to receive vouchers they could spend on a gift of their choice, plus a lunch out; it has been a genuine incentive that means employees look forward to reaching their significant years with the company.
“The Living the Brand awards have also been well received, as often employees are surprised to get them; they are doing their job and don’t expect to get these,” says Michelle, “plus we always receive feedback from the employees saying thank you – a real measurement of success for us. And with the Edenred team always quick on turnaround, the customer service is brilliant; all queries I have are dealt with quickly and efficiently.”
Compliments Select continues to be an ideal choice for Chubb Insurance Company and its 663 employees across the UK and Ireland; the platform demonstrates to staff they are appreciated and on receiving awards, morale is given a significant boost, essential in a challenging market economy.
