Service Awards

Automated Long Service Awards

Technology Rewards

Allgo Service Awards Overview 

Using Allgo’s Recognition platform, you can reward staff for their loyalty in an engaging, personalised way while removing all admin for your HR department.

Simply determine the length of service and the reward points for any service milestone (1 to 40years). Then, on each milestone date, the employee will automatically receive a Service Award by email, with their Line Manager being notified to provide additional personal acknowledgment.

And because the system is points-based, you can issue service rewards at lower values for more frequent milestones (eg 1, 2, 3, 5 years), and even combine your Service Awards programme with other recognition stream – all on a single platform.

How it Works

1. Milestones
At the start of the programme, you decide with Allgo what service milestones you would like to recognise, and how many reward points to award for each. Reward Points can be any value you want and the number of Reward Points you issue for each milestone is completely up to you.

For example, you could decide-

  • 1 Year Milestone: 20 Points (1 Point = €1). Reward Value €20
  • 2 Year Milestone: 40 Points (1 Point = €1). Reward Value €40
  • 3 Year Milestone: 60 Points (1 Point = €1). Reward Value €60 etc

2. Employee Database
We upload your employee database into the Allgo Recognition platform, with each employee’s email,  start date and line manager. This is normally done as a one-off spreadsheet. To keep the system currently you can send us an updated employee database file on a weekly of monthly basis with any joiners, leavers and movers.

3. Recognition
A specific congratulatory message is configured in our system for each milestone. Service Awards are then emailed to the employee automatically on their milestone – with your branding and message.  The employee’s Line Manager can also be notified by email encourage them to add their personal acknowledgement. The award can also appear as a Shout-out on the timeline on the programme website for others to see, like and comment.

4. Rewards
Employees receive Reward Points, and can bank and spent them online in the programme Reward Store. The Reward Store offers a country-specific catalogue of rewards like retail gift cards, ecommerce codes, travel vouchers, hospitality packages, leisure & lifestyle activities, adventure experiences, and technology products. Orders are fulfilled by Allgo and its partners within 3-5 days (or immediately for digital gift cards).

Tax Breaks for Service Awards

Companies in Ireland can avail of two employee reward schemes to make long service awards tax-free or tax-efficient.

Firstly, there is an Irish Revenue Tax-Free Long Service Award for 20+ years. In this scheme, you can reward an employee tax-free as long as ALL the following conditions are satisfied –

  • the award is made as a testimonial to mark long service of not less than 20 years.
  • the award takes the form of a tangible article(s) of reasonable cost.
  • the cost does not exceed €50 for each year of service.
  • no similar award has been made to the recipient within the previous 5 years.
  • The award must NOT be in the form of cash, vouchers, bonds etc.

Some employers find these rules too restrictive, and many employees prefer receiving gift cards or vouchers, in which can the Small Benefit Scheme can be used to provide up to €500 tax-free reward of any kind for any length of service.
