You don't want to setup more Teams than needed, as it can complicate your reporting.

No Teams - Primary Account only

If it will just be you sending out all gifts for the company (or you and someone else you want to share login details with), you don't need to setup any Teams (learn why to use Teams). You can just start sending gifts using your Primary Account (learn more about Buying Gifts).

Single Team

If you'll be deciding on the spending budget for each Team Member, then you probably only need a single Team. Here's an example:

  • Your company has 15 Key Department Managers
  • Each Key Manager has ~10 Employees in their Department
  • Setup up a single Team with each Key Manager as Team Members
  • Provide each Key Manager with ~$150/wk Open Spend to send gifts to their high performing employees 
  • Not all Employees would receive gifts evenly, but if they did, it would be ~$10 per Employee/wk
  • This simple program will empower your Managers to create a culture of recognition at your organization and inspire great employee performance!

Multiple Teams

If you'd like to delegate the Team Admin responsibilities, namely the ability to set Team Member spending budgets, it makes sense to create a new Team for each Key Director. Here's an example:

  • Your company has ~12 Key Directors
  • Each Key Director has ~8 Key Manager direct reports
  • Each Key Manger has ~40 Employees reporting to them
  • Setup up a Team for each Key Director, with their 8 Key Managers as Team Members (you and the Key Director can both be Team Admins so they can set spending budgets and you can access Team Reports)
  • Transfer ~$3200/wk to the Team Balance for the Key Director to allocate to their Key Managers for sending gifts
  • If the Key Director gave each Key Manager the same Open Spend budget, it would be ~$400 per Key Manager/wk to send gifts to Employees
  • Not all Employees would receive gifts evenly, but if they did, it would be ~$10 per Employee/wk
  • This simple program will empower your Directors and Managers to create a culture of recognition at your organization and inspire great employee performance!

Add a Peer-to-Peer Team

If you'd like to setup Peer-to-Peer recognition, it makes sense to setup a separate Team with all Employees as Team Members. You could provide every employee with a small Open Spend Monthly Budget, or activate the Nomination Box so Employees could nominate any of their colleagues. As the Team Admin, you can see all nominations and then send Guusto gifts as you see fit.
