As the curtain comes down on another amazing year, Rewardsco is looking back on 2022 with both gratitude and excitement for how far we’ve come and what the future holds. The theme this year was undoubtedly “growth” as every facet of the business has evolved beyond expectations, from our infrastructure to our valued workforce.
In keeping with our mission to put people first, Rewardsco began the year with the Kickstart 2022 campaign to reward five deserving employees with R22 000 each, just to say thanks for being a part of the business and helping us to fulfil our vision. Now that’s how you kick off a new year!
Being a people-centric business means going the extra mile for our customers as well as our own staff, so when it comes to service, our Customer department doesn’t settle for second best. This year, we launched the “Real Service” campaign to reward consultants who go above and beyond to help clients and to create a roadmap for our people to exceed customer expectations at every touchpoint, further cementing Rewardsco’s commitment to creating delightful experiences for South African consumers.
As one of the largest private employers in KwaZulu-Natal, we also ramped up our recruitment efforts by offering hundreds of jobs in the sales and customer service sectors of the business, as well as specialist positions to attract the best talent in the province. Through our regular Open Days and other recruitment programmes, we onboarded upward of 700 new consultants throughout 2022 – a proud achievement for both the business and for the people of KZN.
Rewardsco ran numerous internal incentives for staff to refer qualified friends and family members for vacancies and were rewarded for their efforts with cash, prizes, weekend getaways and even shopping sprees valued at up to R30 000 each in the Pimp My Pozie campaign, which launched in Q4 of 2022.
Although we have come out the other side of the worst phases of the pandemic, we certainly did not lose the lessons we learned, like how important it is for our people to achieve a healthier work-life balance. With this at the forefront of our minds, we launched our innovative “Half Day, Double Pay” programme, which offers select sales consultants the opportunity to earn a full salary for just 5.5 hours of work per day.
The undoubted jewel in the Rewardsco crown for 2022 was the completion of the third operations centre located on the sprawling, state-of-the-art campus in Umhlanga, Durban – an investment of R100-million. This word-class facility was officially opened in November at a special event attended by the media, business partners and stakeholders. It is a proud testament to Rewardsco’s exponential growth, bringing our total operational space to 20 000 square-metres and providing capacity for an additional 1200 employees.
The future is looking bright for Rewardsco and we aim to grow the business even further in 2023. Now that our Umhlanga-based campus is complete, we’re looking forward to expanding internationally, which will lead to even more job creation and economic growth in our beautiful province.
