Laugh, relax, and feel-good with these Team Rewards


Remembering to take time to celebrate is tough, especially doing it in a memorable way. In a survey we ran last year we found out 69% teams celebrated less than 3 times per quarter. Ouch!

That’s why we made Team Rewards, a fun and collaborative way to inspire us to celebrate more. Because when we celebrate we experience numerous benefits: improved mood, stronger sense of belonging, better relationships, and higher performance to name a few.

It’s a gratitude practice we could all use more of. Here’s some of our favorites to help you get started:

Tailored Rewards

Crowd-sourcing reward ideas from your team is a great way to ensure you’re offering rewards that interest the team. You can do this by sending out a quick survey with a few examples. You can even send a survey right in Slack with Polly.
