Rewarding Our Employees
As we welcome in a new year, we are excited to be celebrating our third year of MarketScale Rewards Cards. The reward cards are a benefit that puts extra money each month in the pockets of our employees to be used for spending, saving or even paying off student loans.
On a monthly basis our accounting team loads money, usually several hundred dollars, onto a MarketScale branded debit card. These rewards cards are reserved specifically for our tenured employees and promptly ordered for them once they hit their one-year anniversary.
The reward card is used differently by each person who gets one. Some use it for grocery runs or going to happy hour, others for bills, and some even save up for big purchases. Our VP, Information Services, Thomas Riley, who recently welcomed a new baby, was one of those who saved up for a big purchase.
“The MarketScale Rewards card has been incredible and literally paid for my third child. I saved up over the course of a year or so and was able to pay 100% of our post-insurance hospital and doctor bills for the birth of my third son from the card. Newborns are still expensive with diapers, formula, etc. but the ability to not have to dip into savings for those medical bills was HUGE for our family and financial stability.” – Thomas Riley – VP, Information Services
Along with the Rewards Cards, we have also implemented programs such as Movie Reimbursements, where we do unlimited reimbursement for movies tickets for employees and their guests. We encourage employees to share something special they may have learned or gained from the movie experience with their colleagues.
As we grow, benefits outside of the standard health insurance and 401k matching, like the reward cards and movie reimbursement, have become a huge focus for us. These programs, along with increasing salaries, enable our employees save money, pay off debt and even spoil themselves a little.
We are excited to continue our MarketScale Rewards Card Program and look forward to adding almost 10 more employees to the program this year once they hit their one-year mark.
