Lifetime Achievement Award for peoplevalue founder at Incentive Awards

Mike Morgan of peoplevalue

The founder of employee engagement company peoplevalue has been awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award at the sixth annual Incentive Awards for his contribution to the rewards and incentive industry.

Mike Morgan founded Wheatley, Oxfordshire-based peoplevalue back in 2002, after seeing an opportunity to create happy, fulfilled and engaged workforces by delivering valuable employee benefits via the internet.

Today, peoplevalue works with around 500 businesses across the UK and has a total of over 1.5 million users.

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 recently, where Mike was presented with the esteemed Lifetime Achievement Award by Joe Foster, co-founder of Reebok.

Judged by a team of industry experts and leaders, the award recognised the work Mike had achieved during his career.

Previous winners of this prestigious award include a number of big industry players, including 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 established peoplevalue in an office at his home near Wallingford. peoplevalue’s first solution was an online portal called Staff Advantage that gave employees access to discounted leisure activities.

Now, the business – which has grown organically year-on-year – has a full suite of innovative employee engagement solutions, and has expanded into the member and contractor engagement space through its brands mymemberperks and Remus Rewards.

Following an MBO earlier this year and peoplevalue embarking on its next stage of growth, Mike has stepped down as CEO and is now an observer on the board.

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.

This award is so special because Mike receives the award as recognition from our industry peer group for the contribution that he, our team, our customers and our partners have contributed over the last 20 years to the industry.

All in the industry know it’s a competitive space and you need to keep evolving as a business to continue to deliver value to your clients. Through Mikes leadership, values and entrepreneurial spirit we have done that over the past 19 years and will continue to do so in the future.”
