About Gifcoins

Every day we meet work colleagues, external partners, customers or people who play a decisive role in shaping our everyday lives. Among these encounters are people who care about us, people who go the extra mile for their project or team. They never give up, were there for us when we needed them and brightened our day. Let them know their actions are seen. Let them know you don't take it for granted.

What starts with a spark can ignite so many things. We don't want to let those sparks go out. Instead, we want to spread them around the world. Write a little note to your daily heroes and let them know you appreciate what they do. All it takes is a e-mail address and a lovely message. That’s what Gifcoins is all about.

We believe that with that little, shiny, priceless coin of ours and your honest and surprising messages we can contribute together to a more meaningful and enjoyable workplace. With Gifcoins we want to spread appreciation around the globe and it all starts with you.

How does it work?

Each employee receives a certain number of coins per month, which can be given away to other employees free of charge. The whole team can see how many coins were given to whom and for what purpose. If the coins are not used, they expire at the end of the month. At the beginning of each month every user gets a limited amount of Gifcoins to share with their colleagues.

The login and the group of each user is based on the e-mail address. As soon as a domain (@example-company.ch) is registered, a group is created for that specific company. Generic e-mail addresses (Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, etc.) can be linked to an account, but such accounts won't be added to a group. If an e-mail address is closed, the access to Gifcoins also expires.

We are happy if Gifcoins can contribute to happy employees in your organization, too.
