Employee Engagement App Launches To Turn Staff Passions Into Productivity

The majority of staff engagement programs are made for the collective, not the individual, and often completely miss the mark by only rewarding the very few. Only 24% of Australian employees say that they are engaged at work and these disengaged employees cost organisations an estimated $33 billion in productivity each year. FUNLOCKA intends to change the way that companies incentivise and get the best out of their workforce.

FUNLOCKA provides VIP experiences for staff based on understanding the individual and their interests, tastes and passions, and works a lot like Netflix and Spotify. Its progressive algorithm learns each staff member’s preferences and passion points, and serves that person experiences it knows they will want and find fulfilling.

Founder, Luke Cook, says, “We want FUNLOCKA to change the reputation of the HR department by turning it into the FUN Department. Rewarding and retaining staff is one of the hardest tasks for businesses and often HR departments’ default engagement solution is a voucher, a gift card, flowers or yoga in the lunchroom. These don’t work anymore, nor do leaders have time to create something more meaningful. People want personalised memories and experiences; things they truly value in life and are a fan of.”

Simon Rutherford, CEO of Slingshot Media, said, “We have signed up to FUNLOCKA because we believe that impacting the lives of employees is not just a 9am to 5pm task anymore. A happy employee in life is a happy employee at work and vice versa. Businesses like us are trying to make a difference to employee engagement and partnering with FUNLOCKA has saved us time in helping us personalise engagement like never before.”

With 46% of Millennials searching for new jobs every two years (63% Gen Z) 2, keeping the next generation of staff engaged is paramount. FUNLOCKA approaches this problem by rewarding employees with ‘FUNtimes’ that they can then redeem against a range of experiences that won’t be found anywhere else. By putting the individual at the centre of the employee engagement platform, the App means employers won’t fall into the age-old trap of offering engagement solutions that no one wants. Fun means different things to different people, and it takes the guess work out of engagement.

Cook adds, “Our experiences are totally out there, we not only offer things for employees, but also for senior management who are seeking ideas for team building activities or client entertainment solutions. 70% of the FUN experiences we have are unique to FUNLOCKA, things like team fitness training with Commando Steve, to putting the chef whites on for a night of services with one of Sydney’s best chefs Nelly from nel. Restaurant, to even having trusted TV vet Dr Katrina Warren and the Wonderdogs showcase how pets in the workplace can increase happiness.”

What’s more, the power of the Apps data capabilities can help businesses spot trends in preferences and tastes, so they can make meaningful decisions when it comes to employee & client engagement.
