Bucketlist helps HR teams to recognize employees through a customizable and ever-evolving platform that offers points, goods, and services. It integrates with the apps your employees already use like Slack, Teams, Google Workspace, and Outlook.
Although their flagship product is their rewards and recognition hub, Bucketlist’s platform is also recognized for their employee incentives, retention, and productivity software. They have also invested into a rewards catalog that includes everything from gift cards to learning how to fly.
For employee recognition, Bucketlist also whatslets you create your own awards system within the platform. Some examples from their customers include making a “Safety Award”, or creating similar recognitions for innovation, performance, or variations of the good ol’ Employee of the Month program.
Their product team is constantly rolling out new features. One of our favorites is an events platform where team members can set up in person or virtual events, invite co-workers, and see who's coming. These are great team building exercises for anything from a virtual celebration to an in person get together.
One of their strong points is the products it integrates with. As you probably know, the key to any successful recognition program is employee engagement. That’s why this solution meets employees where they are - on Slack, mobile, Outlook, Gmail, etc.
Bucketlist also very much checks the automation box. The tool makes it possible to correlate rewards with expected events and milestones. For instance, you can set 250 bonus points to be sent on a person’s work anniversary, or have it send a $100 gift card on someone’s birthday.
Apart from customer support, the guys at Bucketlist also take feature requests from users. Some reviewers have pointed out that their requests were added to the roadmap and then implemented.

Companies of varying sizes and industries in the English-speaking world could work well with Bucketlist’s team, platform, and rewards catalog.
According to several user reviews, the guys at Bucketlist set you up with an implementation team that will learn the culture of your organization in order to ensure a successful launch.
In a good part, Bucketlist started out by acknowledging that employee retention is one of the top challenges faced by HR teams, and that metric is strongly tied to workplace culture. In order to create a meaningful culture though, companies need to be able to reward team members in a meaningful way.
Thinking about that, what could be more meaningful than helping people achieve specific life goals? As you may have guessed, the name “Bucketlist” comes from the old idiomatic expression, further popularized by the Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson movie of the same name, of crossing off items from a list of things you’d like to do before you ‘kick the bucket’.
This is why, although now you can find more traditional awards within the platform like gift cards, they also offer a wide range of local and international experiences.
