Here’s what businesses should know about gift cards for corporate use.
How do corporate gift cards work?
When an organization wants to thank an employee, show appreciation to an entire department, or run a customer-focused promotional campaign, they may choose to send gift cards for a popular brand or restaurant like Panera, Nike, or Barnes & Noble.
In the process, they can deliver more meaningful rewards and recognition to the people driving their success. By using an innovative digital gift card platform like Runa, you can seamlessly send incentives to individuals and groups. As each recipient redeems their reward, Runa’s centralized reporting dashboard keeps you in-the-know.

Build customer loyalty and increase employee happiness
When an employee or affiliate receives a surprise gift recognizing their contributions, morale and retention skyrocket. Likewise, customers and affiliates don’t forget the time a company took notice of them by sending them a gift card.
As you launch campaigns and build your reputation, you can keep track of your redemption rate as well as which corporate gift cards are most popular. In turn, you can make more informed decisions regarding which eGift card to send and when to send it.
