Prizes for better performance at Punch Taverns

Punch Taverns is launching a new employee recognition scheme which rewards staff for enhanced performance, excellent customer service, and practising company values.

The scheme allows area managers to reward employees for doing something over and above the requirements of their day job with four different tiers of prizes. The awards include tax-paid cash prizes of £1,000, £500 or £100, or scratchcards which give employees the chance to win a voucher worth £25 or more to spend in one of the firm’s pubs, an experience day, or a holiday.

Anthony York, head of reward, said: “The scratchcards and prizes mean that even when somebody is doing something relatively simple for which they deserve a thank-you, they’ve now got a chance to win something exciting.”

The reward programme is based on a similar scheme run for staff who were previously part of the Spirit Group, which was acquired by Punch in 2006.
