We’re thrilled to announce an expansion to our already comprehensive rewards catalog, offering employees an array of exciting options to choose from. Through our strategic partnership with Shutterfly, a renowned leader in customizable products, we now offer an extensive array of personalized rewards options that are sure to captivate and delight companies and their workforce. 

This new collaboration allows companies and employees to infuse their unique touch into a wide range of items, including photo books, cards, calendars, prints, and an assortment of delightful gifts.  

The personalization is powered by the product configurator, a form of 3D visualization that enables a smooth user experience when employees configure items they want to order.   

By utilizing their hard-earned points, employees can now embark on a personalized journey, enhancing reward items with cherished photos and memories. 

Activating gratitude and boosting collaboration  

At Semos Cloud, we understand the profound impact of recognizing and valuing the individuality of every hard-working employee. That’s why we’ve introduced this exceptional addition of personalized items into our dynamic rewards catalog.  

We believe that by elevating the employee experience with these tailored rewards, we not only create lasting memories but also cultivate a deep sense of excitement, belonging, and connection within organizations. 

The partnership with Shutterfly allows Semos Cloud to tap into a highly personalized sphere of customized reward items and thus offer its clients superior personalization options for an unparalleled employee experience. 

Employees can now use the points they collected within the recognition and rewards programs and exchange them for an array of various personalized items they can gift to fellow coworkers, their family members or loved ones.  

Personalized rewards for the future of work  

Personalized rewards in recognition programs boost employee engagement, motivation, and satisfaction. By tailoring rewards to individual preferences, organizations show appreciation for unique contributions, fostering a personal connection and loyalty. 

Personalized rewards demonstrate that employers recognize and value the unique contributions and talents of each employee. By offering rewards that align with an individual’s interests, aspirations, and goals, organizations can create a sense of personal connection and appreciation. This, in turn, enhances the emotional connection employees have with their work and their employer, leading to increased loyalty and a higher level of job satisfaction. 

One of the key advantages of personalized rewards is their ability to cater to the diverse needs and preferences of employees. People are motivated by different things, and what may be rewarding for one employee may not hold the same value for another.  

By customizing rewards, employers can offer a range of options for tangible rewards such as gift cards or experiences that align with individual desires. This flexibility allows employees to choose rewards that are meaningful to them, making the recognition and rewards program more inclusive and effective.

Moreover, personalized rewards can serve as powerful motivators for continued excellence and growth. When employees are rewarded based on their individual accomplishments, they feel a sense of pride and fulfillment, which fuels their motivation to excel further. By recognizing and rewarding employees in a personalized manner, organizations create a positive reinforcement loop that encourages individuals to strive for greatness and achieve their full potential. 

How to use the new rewards catalog in JobPts  

The partnership with Shutterfly and options to personalize rewards opened several exciting options for users of JobPts. 

When you browse our dynamic rewards catalog, we invite you to embark on a personalized journey. Discover the delight of breathing life into cherished memories and surprising your peers and loved ones with truly meaningful gifts. This is yet another testament to our unwavering dedication to enhancing employee engagement and cultivating an environment where every individual feels esteemed and acknowledged. 

Make those good memories last  

Our personalized rewards serve as remarkable tokens of gratitude to be shared with family, friends, and colleagues. Imagine the joy of surprising loved ones with a personalized calendar, featuring heartwarming snapshots that will warm their hearts throughout the year. Consider presenting a heartfelt, customized card to a colleague during the holiday season, or customize a coffee mug with pictures from a favorite work event to give a fellow coworker as a gift, fostering enduring connections and a sense of camaraderie.  

Stay tuned for captivating updates and new additions to our rewards catalog, as we consistently prioritize employees’ happiness and fulfillment. Together, let us embrace the power of personalization, forging stronger connections, and creating moments that will be cherished for a lifetime. 

Engaging in the creation of meticulously designed personalized items that encapsulate cherished moments spent with colleagues or loved ones fosters a deep sense of personal commitment towards both organizational objectives and individual growth.  

One example would be a manager placing an image from a team-building event on a cup and giving it to an employee to savor the memories and strengthen a bond.  

Somebody in the team has a birthday? An employee can gift a personalized poster to their celebrating peer. An employee can also choose to gift a personalized family calendar to their spouse or a child.  

Similarly, employees can also customize unique sets of cards adorned with snapshots of priceless memories, be it a heartwarming family reunion or a remarkable team building. The realm of possibilities is boundless, and the inclusion of personalized rewards into an already rich and varied dynamic rewards catalogue further enriches the delightful employee journey. 

The value of personalized rewards for employees  

The value of personalized rewards for employees is multifaceted and can have a significant impact on their overall satisfaction, motivation, and engagement. Here are some key aspects of their value: 

1. Recognition and appreciation 

Personalized rewards demonstrate that employees’ efforts and contributions are recognized and appreciated by their employer. This recognition goes beyond a simple acknowledgment and shows that their work is valued at an individual level. It boosts morale, self-esteem, and a sense of accomplishment, leading to increased job satisfaction. 

2. Motivation and performance  

Personalized rewards act as powerful motivators for employees. When they receive rewards that are specifically tailored to their interests, goals, or needs, it creates a personal connection and sense of ownership. This connection fuels their intrinsic motivation, encouraging them to continue performing at a high level and achieve even greater results. 

3. Customization and choice  

Personalized rewards offer customization and choice, allowing employees to select rewards that align with their preferences. This empowers individuals to have a say in their rewards, making them more meaningful and desirable. When employees have the freedom to choose rewards that resonate with them, it enhances their satisfaction and engagement with the recognition program. 

4. Retention and loyalty 

Personalized rewards contribute to employee retention and loyalty. When employees feel valued and appreciated, they are more likely to remain committed to their organization. Personalized rewards create a bond between employees and their employer, fostering a sense of loyalty and reducing the likelihood of turnover. Employees who are satisfied and recognized are less inclined to seek opportunities elsewhere. 

5. Positive work environment 

Personalized rewards contribute to a positive work environment by fostering a culture of appreciation and camaraderie. When employees witness their colleagues receiving personalized rewards, it generates a positive ripple effect, inspiring others to strive for excellence. This creates a collaborative atmosphere, enhances teamwork, and promotes healthy competition. 


In summary, personalized rewards hold immense value for companies and their employees. Personalized rewards provide recognition, motivation, customization, and the opportunity for growth. By offering rewards that are tailored to individual preferences and needs, organizations can cultivate a positive work environment, increase employee satisfaction and engagement, and ultimately drive organizational success. 

Also, personalized rewards celebrate individual achievements and promote a culture of appreciation, inclusivity, and continuous improvement. By incorporating personalized rewards into R&R programs, organizations can cultivate a highly engaged and motivated workforce, leading to increased productivity, employee retention, and overall success. 

Another significant benefit of personalized rewards is the impact they have on employee morale and team dynamics. When employees witness their colleagues being acknowledged and rewarded for their efforts, it not only boosts the morale of the recipient but also creates a positive ripple effect throughout the organization. Seeing others being recognized motivates employees to work harder and contribute more to the team’s success. It fosters a culture of collaboration and healthy competition, driving overall performance and creating a positive work environment.
