How Gatherly uses PerkUp to Scale their Remote Culture

One of the most important things for their team was that employees felt empowered to take ownership over their own perk experience and valued by their employer.

The Company

Gatherly is disrupting the way we use video conferencing by creating a space that allows people to interact as if they were in person. The platform allows you to host online events where participants can seamlessly flow between one-on-ones, smaller huddles, and bigger groups. 

Bringing the Team Together from Afar

As a growing startup, Gatherly wanted to streamline their employee perks program by removing the hassle of the time consuming approval and expense reimbursement process. They needed a way to meet the needs of a dispersed team with varying interests while keeping up with their evolving company culture. Gatherly’s platform is designed to create meaningful interactions online which made it even more important that their own team was engaged and connected through internal programs. 

Flexible Perks People Actually Want

When we met Co-founder and Team Mom, Carl, it was clear that he earned his coveted title for a reason. He recognized the importance of keeping his team happy and engaged in order to successfully scale his diverse, remote centric team. It was important that employees at Gatherly had access to perks they actually wanted, with an emphasis on mental health and wellness. We worked closely with Carl to develop a perk plan that would act as an extension of his company’s culture and allow Gatherly’s employees the flexibility to choose the perks they actually wanted.

An Inclusive Solution Without the Administrative Burden

In just two short months, Gatherly has already seen incredible results from using PerkUp. One of the most important things for their team was that employees felt empowered to take ownership over their own perk experience and valued by their employer. It was so exciting for Carl to hear his team talking about what they were able to buy because of PerkUp, and even more so that he didn’t have to be a middleman in the process. The Rippling integration made the onboarding process quick and simple by giving every Gatherly employee instant access to their Perk Cards. 

“The integration with Rippling made it so easy to onboard, I didn’t even have to think about it!”

The team is already achieving their goal of automating the employee perk experience which is giving them more time to actually enjoy their purchases. Having the freedom to make perk suggestions directly in the PerkUp platform has empowered the team to ask for items they actually value as individuals. Carl is elated by the fact that his team is finally able to express their creativity in a way that wasn’t possible before PerkUp.

So what’s next?

As Gatherly continues to grow, their focus will be directed towards collecting data from PerkUp to better understand the evolving needs of their dispersed team. The data dashboard provides them with information to help develop internal programs and initiatives unique to their employees needs and wants as determined by their spend habits and preferences. With customized programs and hand selected perks, Gatherly has created a strong foundation for an enthusiastic and productive team and a caring culture.
