CoffeeCup motivates your employees systematically and individually

Every person is different. And every person is motivated by different things. Of course, this also applies to your employees. That's why it's important that you don't generalize your bonus system, but individualize it. This is the only way to ensure that your incentive measures do not come to nothing again after a short time and poor results. CoffeeCup takes care of the necessary personalization of your bonus system for you. This allows you to reward each individual employee in a way that is most valuable to them personally ... and therefore most motivating and triggers the best results.

Company goals become employee goals

Motivation is important, but of course it is not everything. To contribute to the company's success, the employees also have to do the right things. And these are different for every company. That's why CoffeeCup is customizable. The system alerts your employees to the company's goals with regular pulses, ensuring that the employee's personal goals are linked to the company's goals. This way you can make your team's focus measurable and transparent and promote the management mindset of your employees.
