A Local Incentive Program for YOU & Your Employees!

The “Love Local Employees’ Incentive Program is a way for you to reward and incentivize the individuals representing your company on a daily basis.

‘Love Local Employees’ is used as a(n) benefits package, incentive program, holiday bonus, gifting portal, and above all for employee retention and company moral.

How does it work?


Register your business, and your employees with the ‘Love Local Employees’ Incentive Program!

You, and your employees will have individual accounts to house ‘Incentive Credit’.

These accounts are similar to a bank account, just with local spending credit instead of cash.

Each account has a personal log-in to access balances, shop the marketplace, and explore other local business participants!

Shop & Love Local!

Earn ‘Incentive Credit’

The beauty of the ‘Love Local Employees’ program is you don’t have to dip into your cash budget for incentives, bonuses or benefits. 

We will pre-purchase credit to be used at your business, which normally comes in the form of gift certificates. As an example, we will pre-purchase 20 gift certificates valued at $50 each, to be used at your business.  This will give you $1000 in ‘Local Incentive Credit’.

These gift certificates will then be listed on our platform, along with the many other local business participants gift certificates.   They are then purchased by other employees & members of the program.

This means, advertising for your business, and potential new customers!

It’s a win, win for businesses, and their employees!

Reward Employees

You have complete control over what you would like to reward your employees.

If you choose to submit $1000 (20 x $50) in gift certificates to the program, you will have $1000 of ‘Local Incentive Credit’ to divvy up however you would like!

You can use it as you go for:

– Hiring Bonuses

– Wage Subsidy (ex. $2 extra an hour in Local Credit)

– Weekly or monthly Employee Incentives

– Birthday Bonuses

– Employee Benefits Package, with monthly deposits

– A Just Because Bonus…

It’s totally up to you!
