Loyalty lives on Culture Street

Employers lose significant revenue through lost workplace productivity based on employees’ checking out. In 2023, this figure was a staggering $8.8 trillion globally.

Companies can positively impact business outcomes by embracing a culture of gratitude and empowering employees to recognize and socialize achievements. Espresa’s employee rewards and recognition program delivers 360 degrees of holistic recognition in a single app.
