Mike Morgan, founder of Oxfordshire-based employee engagement company, receives Lifetime Achievement Award

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 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. 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.

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. His ethos and passion for people, which has shaped peoplevalue’s culture and purpose, continues to shine on in the business which is dedicated to delivering an excellent service to clients and users.

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.
