HeyTaco rewards are a great way to add some extra excitement to your taco economy.

You can create custom tailored rewards that your team can redeem with the tacos they've received. Rewards are built using a redemption model and for every taco you receive you also earn a redeemable taco. You use your redeemable tacos to redeem the rewards you've created.

There are two types of rewards, individual rewards you redeem for yourself, and team rewards you work together with others to redeem.

When it comes to rewards I recommend non-monetary rewards. Gift cards can work, but you can quickly find yourself in a situation where people are giving tacos because they want the money. And if this is the case, you have to question the impact of the tool.

HeyTaco customers typically find better results with experience type rewards, an online cooking class, social gatherings, or a high five from the CEO.

These types of experience rewards work great because they are personable and they create everlasting memories.

Let's look at a team reward. Team rewards are great for bringing people together around a shared goal. In this case I've created a feel-good reward, tacos for charity. The way this works, anyone on the team can come in and contribute as many of their tacos towards the redemption of this reward. Anyone who contributes will be listed here on the right side, and once we get to a thousand tacos then this team reward is considered redeemed. And HeyTaco admins will get a notification that the reward has been redeemed.

Creating a reward is really simple, there are some ideas over here on the side. However, you probably have your own ideas. You set a title, a description, a redemption amount, this is how many tacos it will take to redeem this reward. Quantity if you have a limited supply of an item. And then the box here allows you to type a message to the person redeeming the reward to let them know what to expect.

You don't have to break the bank with rewards. Some of the best rewards are low cost or no cost. I recommend keeping things easy and having fun.

What customers are saying about HeyTaco

"Most fun way to engage people and encourage kindness"

We encourage collaboration in our membership community and we've tried, in the past, creating our own IP in the forms of gamification systems and applications and none were as easy to use and UI/UX friendly the way HeyTaco is. Our members are rewarded for helping others and working together which is what our community is all about.

"A great way to celebrate and recognize your teammates!"

It helps our organization step out of the silos to engage with other departments. And with work already being easy enough to focus on negatives and the constant need to improve, HeyTaco is a great way to celebrate and recognize team members' accomplishments.

"A great way to stay connected virtually!"

HeyTaco provides an easy way for the entire team to provide recognition virtually, which is especially important now that we work across the U.S. and internationally! Being able to personalize our HeyTaco rewards and have them sent to our address is perfect for our virtual team.

"Outstanding rewards program!"

HeyTaco is a great way to allow your employees to have something exciting to work towards! It also provides silly but awesome rewards to even reward you for giving out tacos! That encourages us to use it more as well!

"Teammates + Tacos = Best Company Morale"

HeyTaco helps remote workers continue to connect and talk, even when we are not face to face. 100% remote work can be challenging/lonely, however, HeyTaco has kept us connected and in touch through it all.

Easy way to show those around you some public praise and appreciation which encourages others to do so as well.
