Introduction to Incentives

Looking to provide your users with some positive reinforcement for taking alternative modes to work? Don’t want to force them to compete with other users? Incentives is the way to go! Choose your criteria, who is eligible, and what the reward will be and you’re set! No need to compete with Dave down the hall any more, all users can be equally eligible for a movie night or a chance to win a raffle!
