Innovation Minds | November 23, 2022
Innovation Minds, a Silicon Valley-based company, announced today the launch of their new Rewards-as-a-Service solution. With this solution, Innovation Minds is enabling companies to offer their employees tailored reward options in order to increase talent retention and satisfaction.
Motivating and rewarding employees is one of the top challenges facing organizations today. In fact, according to a recent survey, more than 60% of respondents say their company struggles to motivate and retain top talents. The Innovation Minds team is uniquely positioned to help companies with this challenge by providing personalized rewards service that creates experiences where employees are engaged and motivated throughout the day.
With this solution, companies can customize rewards based on data insights, such as reward preferences and demographics. It offers a self-service platform to let companies update or make changes to their rewards program for their employees. It also allows employees to get real-time notifications when they earn a reward and they can redeem it on their device with just a click, creating a seamless and enjoyable experience for employees.
"We believe this is an important step forward in helping employers create a more elevating work environment, Innovation Minds is focused on helping businesses create positive and engaging employee experiences. By making the rewards experience easier and more enjoyable, we are helping our customers deliver more value faster."
-Innovation Minds CEO Bala Balasubramaniam
The Innovation Minds team integrated their patented concept ‘Earn-Your-Pride-To-Reward-Your-Peers’, an innovative framework that allows employees to exchange appreciation for each other’s contribution, encouraging employees to make deep, personal connections with their team members and see how their position affects the work of others. Mike Lella, Head of Business Development added, The idea of receiving reward from an accomplished peer is much more meaningful than simply receiving recognition from management alone. Simultaneously, this notion is also encouraging a self-sustainable culture of engagement because the awardees get to enjoy the privilege of earning AND giving.
The solution features a wide range of reward options that supports 594 global brands, 45 countries and 28 currencies, customizable for each company's specific needs while being aligned with their company values. It also provides HR teams and managers with tools to measure the success of their campaign and track results.
We understand that rewards are often not enough to keep your employees motivated at work. It's about more than just giving out candy it's about creating an environment that makes work rewarding in itself. This latest upgrade will allow us to support even more companies in their efforts to drive employee engagement and retention, said Maria Bolo, Head of Customer Success at Innovation Minds.

Humantelligence (HT) won the 2022 HRO Today Association Award for Best In Class HR Technology in the North America region at last week’s HRO Today Association Conference - attended by more than 150 senior HR executives. The award recognized the company’s innovative one-to-one and team collaboration technology for its ease of use, quick implementation, and ability to optimize collaboration on the spot for remote and hybrid teams.
For more than 15 years, the Association has recognized company and individual accomplishments in human resources and leadership in North America, EMEA and APAC. The nomination process offers people, teams, partners and companies the opportunity to share best practices and successes so colleagues, and the industry as a whole, can benefit from their experience. The awards recognize leadership, collaboration, innovation, and hard work, as well as a commitment to people and process improvement. This year’s awards garnered hundreds of submissions, and 71 finalists were named.
Humantelligence delivers personalized communication insights through the tools organizations use every day: Microsoft Teams®, Outlook®, Gmail®, Zoom®, Webex®, Slack® and calendars.
When drafting an email, chatting with a colleague, or joining a meeting, the tool automatically surfaces useful, customized tips for more effective communication and collaboration between team members. With this tool, leaders can create more balanced & diverse teams, reduce friction between team members, and improve productivity. By focusing on collaboration in this way, clients - including BASF, Bank of the West, Honda, AFLAC and others -- have improved team effectiveness and employee engagement while maximizing investment in their current communication technologies.
“It’s important to empower employees with the kind of tools that enable more effective collaboration. We know that when people better understand themselves and others, they can better connect with each other, become more deeply engaged in their work and perform better. At the same time, organizations can increase productivity and improve the employee experience - it’s a win-win for everyone. In our work with hundreds of organizations, we’ve seen our collaboration tool change the way companies think about how people work together, and it’s really gratifying to be recognized by HRO Today for this work,”
