Rollout Guusto Guide

Why you'll love Guusto

First off, it's completely FREE!

Ensure recognition is done, company-wide, for the right reasons (e.g. core values, goals)

  • Eliminate manual processes

    No more running to the store to buy gift cards, hand writing thank-you letters, sourcing merchandise or dealing with shipping delays! Start gifting in seconds with no employee training needed to redeem gifts, or rollout an impactful company wide program in one afternoon!

    Getting Started Guide

  • Effective real-time recognition

    Stop waiting weeks for items to ship. Frequent and immediate recognition will encourage and reinforce desired behaviors! Deliver gifts when it matters most (for maximum impact!), with email, text, export, and print options, so no one is ever left out.

    How Buying Gifts Works

  • Super flexible & easy redemption

    Recipient gets to choose where to redeem from 50,000+ locations, and can split gifts across multiple merchants. Use phone or print it out (no app required), and they'll never lose it.

    How Redemption Works


  • Reward the right reasons

    Align recognition with things your company cares about (e.g. core values, behaviors, goals) and mandate (if desired) that rewards only go out for those reasons.

    How Gift Reasons Works

  • Modern milestone awards

    Give rewards that people actually value (ditch the pins and plaques!). Schedule service awards via bulk upload to be delivered on specific days. Notify managers to ensure they add a personal touch or to make a presentation.




  • Powerful tracking, reporting, and analytics

    Ditch the labour intensive spreadsheets for expense & behavior tracking. Full visibility into everything (e.g. who buys, who claims, the reason, business unit, cost centre, etc). Quickly pull expense reports, taxable benefit reports, and insightful analytics to better understand where your company culture is excelling and the areas you need to improve.

  • High impact, low cost

    No markups or shipping fees, meaning people get the rewards they deserve (stop paying $100 + shipping for something that retails for $70).


    Set claim periods for unclaimed gifts to cancel automatically, or cancel manually anytime. This can account for huge savings over the course of the year (typically 15-20%)!

  • Powerful team management

    Empower managers and/or employees with budgets to send instant gifts when their team members and/or colleagues are performing at a high level. Immediate recognition is so much more effective than waiting for a distant performance review.


  • Engage With Social Feeds & Leaderboards

    Further employee engagement by making reward activity and messaging public for the whole Team to see. Setup one Team or multiple Teams, each with their own administrator.

    How Public Settings Work
  • Peer-to-peer nominations

    Empower colleagues to recognize each other with non-monetary nominations. Further employee engagement by making nomination activity public for the whole Team to see.


    Team admins, or managers with budgets, can then send Guusto gifts based on nominations and leaderboards. Run regular contests or enter team members in a draw for a larger prize. The possibilities are endless! 🙂

  • Not Tech Savvy? No Problem

    We understand that companies often have team members who aren’t comfortable with computers. With web, mobile and offline solutions, no-one is left out, regardless of age or computer competence. We work with companies who have 5-generations of employees!
    How Printing Gifts Works



  • Pay-it-forward

    Just want to send a gift to someone, and mandate that they give it to someone else (great for one-off peer-peer campaigns)? Maybe you’d like each of your store managers to pass a gift on to their employee of the month. We have that option too.

"Having the Guusto gift cards as a rewards option has presented such a wonderful opportunity for our organization and for our employees. Guusto provides us with an efficient platform to send our associates a financial reward so that they are able to purchase merchandise or spend their gift card value on a fun experience such as going to see a movie or going out for a nice dinner. It has also given us another channel for sending our associates recognition for their outstanding personal achievements. We have really enjoyed this new program and it has definitely helped to motivate and drive results."

"Guusto is an absolutely amazing employee recognition tool! It's so simple to use, and it's great giving our people the choice of where they want to redeem. Also, their customer support team has been outstanding whenever we've had questions."
