Appreciation for employees

BontiqueOne offers you a simple but versatile and creative solution to present personal appreciation. Thanks to the simple creation options, you can quickly create appreciation for a wide range of employee events that always bear your company's signature.

The employee gift for every taste

Adventure and relaxation, enjoyment and sustainability - Bontique-Checks are full of possibilities. The Bontique-Check adapts to the individual needs and wishes of each employee. The value of the check can be split into several parts and used with different partners.

Making a mark with corporate design

The platform offers you complete freedom of design possibilities. You choose your image, your logo, fill in the name and the text for the event and create your individual Bontique-Check. Even the redemption page of the Bontique-Check can be presented to the employees in your company design, if desired.

No social security contributions and taxes

Bontique-Checks are considered gifts and are exempt from both tax (per event) and social security contributions (per year) up to CHF 500.

* These are services with an economic value which do not accrue to the recipient in the form of money. The prerequisite for taxation is that the gifts can be converted into money or enable expenses to be saved. Gifts not exceeding CHF 500 per year are not subject to taxation and do not have to be listed in the salary statement. In the case of gifts exceeding this amount, however, the full amount must be stated.

How it works:

  • For your company, minimum effort with maximum benefit.
  • Perfect control of employee appreciation. You always have all important data under control.
  • Individually and personally tailored to the person receiving the gift
  • More emotional and sustainable than monetary gifts
  • Bontique Checks can be redeemed with one or more partners
  • Tax and social security contribution-free up to CHF 500, as they are considered gifts*.

Client Testimonials

Barbara Hösli
former CHRO, Odlo International AG

Our experience with BontiqueOne has shown that our employees appreciate this type of gift enormously and clearly prefer it to cash. They have a wide choice of partners and so far they have all found something suitable. The possibility to design the Bontique checks with your own photos makes the gift very personal and always puts a smile on the employees' faces. The quick creation and processing also saves a lot of time and an emergency gift is ready in 5 minutes. So it's fun for everyone!
