Mike Morgan, founder of peoplevalue, receives lifetime achievement award at the 2021 Incentive Awards
Mike Morgan, founder of peoplevalue, has been awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award at the sixth annual Incentive Awards for his contribution to the rewards and incentive industry.
Incentive Awards Ltd was established in 2015 to celebrate excellence across the Incentive, Reward and Recognition industry and is known as the ultimate hallmark of industry excellence. The annual awards ceremony took place in London yesterday, Wednesday 24th November, where Mike was presented with the esteemed Lifetime Achievement Award by Joe Foster, co-founder of Reebok.
This award, which was decided by a team of industry experts and leaders, recognises what Mike has achieved during his career and the success of the business he built over the last 19 years – peoplevalue. Previous winners of this prestigious award include a number of big industry players, such as Ian Rosewell, Director of Procurement International, John Sylvester, Director of P&MM and Chairman of Sodexo and Rob Purdy, Founder and CEO of CarltonOne Engagement.
Mike Morgan founded peoplevalue back in 2002, after seeing an opportunity to create happy, fulfilled and engaged workforces by delivering valuable employee benefits via the internet. At this point, the employee benefits industry was in its infancy and the internet was no-where near as prevalent as it is today. But, with his strong sales ability and entrepreneurial spirit, Mike wrote a business plan, left his executive role and set about building a business focused on helping organisations engage their people. Since then, peoplevalue has grown organically year-on-year and Mike has become a well-known figure in the incentive and rewards industry.
peoplevalue’s first solution was an online portal called Staff Advantage that gave employees access to discounted leisure activities. Now, the business has a full suite of innovative employee engagement solutions, works with around 500 businesses across the UK and has a total of over 1.5 million users. peoplevalue has even expanded into the member and contractor engagement space through its brands mymemberperks and Remus Rewards.
Mike is a tenacious, quick-thinking and likeable individual with a real passion for people. His ethos has undoubtedly shaped peoplevalue’s culture and purpose which has always been to deliver an excellent service to our clients and users. Now an observer on the board following an MBO earlier this year, Mike is now able to focus on spending time with his family and his love of sailing.
Commenting on Mike’s achievement, Andy Caldicott, CEO of peoplevalue said:
“I am absolutely delighted that our Founder, Mike Morgan has been recognised by the Incentive Awards with their highest accolade, the Lifetime Achievement Award.
