    Fond is a great way to incentivize your sales team during contests and rewards for top performers. Also, a great way to incentivize your partners such as referral sources and clients. I can’t think of anything where it’s not really appropriate as an offering. Great offering for employee vacation perks.

    I'm honestly not sure why my company chose to use Small Improvements. We used Lattice before for the all the same use cases I mentioned here. The employee performance review feature might be a bit better in Small Improvements, but the goal-setting tool and the 1:1 tool are very weak. I may not have benefitted yet from all the features that Small Improvements have to offer, but so far it looks like a pretty basic HR tool with much better alternatives out there. If it's cheaper than the competition, that might be the only argument to go with it.

    Pros

    Fond

    • Provides a long list of alternatives that make it easy to use your Fond points for the product/services you truly care about.
    • Very easy to redeem; select what you want to receive, and click redeem with the points/dollars requested. Typically, gift cards are provided within seconds.
    • Regularly rotate offerings so that you have many options throughout the year.

    Cons

    Fond

    • When first trying to select a gift card, I'd get an occasional error message, but other than that, it was pretty easy to use.
    • Getting more widespread with the types of awards that users can redeem is always a plus!
    • This may have changed since I last used Fond, but last time I tried using the system, the total points you had were tucked away in a somewhat obscure location.

    Small Improvements

    • Interface can be cluttered at times
    • There isn't a lot of help or knowledge readily available when first using the tool

      I never had to contact their support so far. There's no "N/A" option so I'm going with a neutral "5".

      Alternatives Considered

      Fond

      We have not tested other products that offer such a way to award our employees for doing a fantastic job. Fond has been helping with all the necessary situations and the costs have been quite low. We have not looked into other products. I would recommend going with Fond because we have not found any quality issues with their service.

      Lattice was able to link in with core OKRs whereas from my memory, Small Improvements didn't support this goal setting and tracking framework. While it was good for sentiment and management frameworks, it was unable to connect with the greater company vision as well as Lattice - that was the reason that we moved.
