What is Guusto?

Guusto is a Recognition and Rewards platform that is presented as simple, impactful and free.

Guusto states they help HR Leaders build Employee Recognition programs that augment company culture, inspire great performance, drive productivity and boost retention. They also aim to help Sales Professionals build Customer Reward programs that engage prospects, drive more return business, increase referrals, and boost customer advocacy.

Users can get started in a few minutes, streamline existing manual processes, then scale up program to provide managers/employees with various tools. Gifts can be redeemed at any partner merchant (60,000+ in USA/CAN, and International Mastercards), so everyone gets something they actually value.

Guusto includes web, mobile and offline solutions.

Tracking & reporting provides full visibility into a rewards program.

Purpose driven with 1 day of clean water donated for every gift sent.

There's no long term contract or minimums, unclaimed gifts are credited back in full, and Guusto charges the merchants to ensure every dollar spent on recognition actually makes it to users.
