Fond vs Motivosity

Fond

The Bottom Line

Plenty of rewards, discounts, customizations, and integrations might make it too much for some.

Motivosity

The Bottom Line

An easy-to-use recognition platform whose interface can be off-putting, but its performance management and employee satisfaction tools could be a good fit for some.

How It Works

Fond

Fund your account upfront with points, which are distributed to users to give away every month or quarter. Recognition can be peer-to-peer or top-down and monetary or non-monetary. Earned points can be used to purchase gift cards or physical products.

Users are given a certain amount of Motivosity bucks every month to give recognition to other users. Earned bucks can be spent on gift cards or linked directly to a physical Motivosity debit card.
