“Capital Bonds are Edenred’s market leading multistore gift voucher, offering the greatest choice and convenience of all gift vouchers in the UK.
“They are easy to use as a business incentive, and the wide range of outlets where the vouchers can be redeemed make them perfect for employers who want to motivate their staff with a reward that suits them personally.”
Capital Bonds, administered by Edenred, has more retailers in its network than any other voucher of its kind, with 50 more retailers than any other multistore voucher as well as more than 450 independent retailers.
They are used by thousands of organisations throughout the UK in recognition of general performance and behavioural rewards, in employee recognition and reward schemes such as long service, in loyalty programmes, or as rewards in suggestion schemes, total rewards or sales incentives programmes.
Recipients can choose to use their vouchers at outlets that match their lifestyle
requirements, and can purchase products for their home, enjoy employee discounts,
experience fun days out with friends or use even their reward vouchers as part
payment towards holidays and travel.
