Sodexo Engage, specialists in employee and consumer engagement, today announces its partnership with WeGift, a platform for the real-time, global transaction of gift cards, enabling it to expand its on-demand digital rewards capabilities. With the appetite for more personal rewards and the necessity for on-demand services, this partnership will help meet the current trend in employee engagement.

The partnership will bolster Sodexo Engage’s benefits, loyalty and rewards system by offering a wider range of rewards options for clients in a more beneficial way. With employees increasingly wanting rewards that are both appealing as well as easily accessible, the new scheme will deliver on this by offering a larger selection of eVouchers and streamlining an organisation’s gift card offering. Employees will now be able to receive one voucher which can be spent in multiple outlets, rather than having to split their reward across multiple products.

Additionally, the partnership will allow Sodexo Engage to supply regions outside of the UK, including the Republic of Ireland and emerging Eastern European regions such as Russia and Poland.

Founded in 1966 by Pierre Bellon, Sodexo is the global leader in services that improve Quality of Life, an essential factor in individual and organisational performance. Operating in 80 countries, they serve 75 million consumers each day through a unique combination of On-site Services, Benefits and Rewards Services and Personal and Home Services.

Iain Thomson, Director of Incentive & Recognition at Sodexo Engage, comments:

“Businesses are increasingly focusing on the need to give their employees better, more desirable and personalised rewards, and to do so efficiently.  We always strive to make sure we give them the best tools to help them do just that. Through our partnership with WeGift, we hope to offer the widest range of eVouchers as well as allowing customers to access their rewards and discounts far more quickly. It’s a win-win for everyone.”
