“The combination of Cooleaf and Slack (they integrate so easily) has made it possible for us to transition to an all-remote workforce -literally overnight - during the pandemic. Cooleaf saved us, really. We have been able to keep communicating, community building, and more during this time."

Linda Kricher, Net Health

“I can engage in competitions and challenges with my coworkers and receive rewards points for them that I can redeem for gift card. The challenges have led to some good conversation starters with colleagues who I don't normally get the opportunity to connect with.”

Adrian Ferrera, Auburn University

“We were looking for a different way to promote professional development and encourage intentional and deliberate activities. We also wanted to promote and reward our staff for participation in health and wellness activities. This engagement software provided us with just that capability.”

Kelly McCune, Aprio

"With Cooleaf, Shipt has been able to generate connectivity amongst our employees when we have all be separated. Cooleaf provides challenges to keep our employees engaged while also providing a forum to recognize individuals for their many accomplishments. It's one thing to give kudos, but by providing our teams with tangible gifts of thanks, Cooleaf has boosted morale and continues to be a bright spot in our team members work life."

Lane V., Cooleaf User

"I love both the recognitions and challenges that happen in Cooleaf. It keeps employees engaged and gives employees that extra drive. There is nothing like getting a simple good job or a pat on the back for the hard work. The fact that Cooleaf implements both a public recognition to work peers and also rewards you for your hard work is what keeps employees working hard. The challenges are also a great thing; some of those challenges help employees get to know each other. Overall this is a great way to keep employees engaged."

Andre M., Cooleaf User

"I love how the points transfer to real money and we're able to purchase things with them. I also like how the challenges/events bring us together as a company, especially since we’ve been working from home and receiving Cooleaf points at the end is like the icing on the cake. Also, if we're having a rough week, we can recognize someone on our team and receive points which helps boost employee spirits and morale."

JaMel D., Cooleaf User

"Cooleaf makes it easy to recognize your coworkers for a job well done. The awards are customizable, easy to understand, and there's ample room to make each recognition personal and memorable. There's always a wide variety of rewards available to choose from, from the mundane to the exceptional. The feed on the homepage is a useful tool for keeping track of birthdays and promotions in a larger enterprise."

Sue T., Cooleaf user

"I like that I can issue praise/shoutouts, participate in periodic virtual events and that Cooleaf points can be turned into gift cards for real-life purchases. I already bought a Ninja Foodi and a Deep Fryer using my gift cards. I feel that I can engage with my co-workers in a meaningful way and helps fulfill some of the social interactions I am missing during quarantine."

Jake G., Cooleaf user

"It's a great tool for team synergy and a great way to recognize your peers. I think it's been great for our team especially during the pandemic where so many of us have never even set foot in the HQ office and haven't met each other. We've got to see glimpses of each others' personalities and humor. The support team is so fast at resolving issues, and sometimes they email me before I even know an issue occurred to tell me they solved it."

Forester W., Cooleaf User

"My experience has been fabulous; I have found it to be rewarding and motivating in my daily work. The rewards are highly motivating for me to put in higher quality work in order to receive more points. It's a great way to incentivize me to do my best!"

A letter from our co-founders

We understand how challenging it is to create and deliver meaningful experiences in a world that is moving faster than ever before.

The key to success lies in the experience you deliver your team, customers, and partners. The problem is, there's been a radical change to the way business gets done. From the workplace to the shopping cart, people are craving meaningful experiences. To feel seen. To feel valued. And to create deep connections, with peers and brands alike.

Right now, so many of us are facing: 

      - Unexpected obstacles of shifting to virtual environments
      - New demands in how customers want to engage
      - Employees and customers feeling disconnected and tuning out

These factors make it more difficult to connect deeply with peers at work; it takes more effort to cut through the noise and grab the attention of potential customers; leaders struggle to inspire teams to go above and beyond. We want to help.

That's why we rewrote the playbook for high-performing teams. Using Cooleaf's Listen-Engage-Measure experience framework, leading brands keep their people celebrated and engaged. That highly-engaged team creates personalized and meaningful experiences for your customers. Your customers feel valued, feel appreciated, and stick around for the long term.

So stop using an outdated playbook to guide a modern approach to brand experience. Instead, allow Cooleaf to help you create meaningful experiences that lead to high growth. Our team of engagement experts is at your service!
