Add a company

Question: How do I add my company to Youlcee?

Answer:

As there is a cost involved for companies to subscribe, you should first of all be authorised by your company to sign a contract. The actual cost depends on the company-module, the number of employees and the amount the company wants to sponsor each employee.

More information can be found in the Terms & Conditions

In order to subscribe your company - fill out the template and we will contact you as soon as possible and send you the information in more detail.

Question: Does it make sense for a small company to subscribe?

Answer:

It depends on the amount of motivated employees.

If you have more than 5 employees willing to commit to their challenge - then it surely makes sense to subscribe. If you will have difficulties finding 3 employees to open a challenge, you will be better of by sponsoring your employees without setting up a company in the system. It will be cheaper by supporting the individual challenges (when sponsoring them, use the companyname as alias). But the disadvantage will be that your company will not appear in any of the overviews.

Question: Can I start a group instead of a company for my employees (and avoid the subscription fee)?

Answer:

Yes you can, but this has the following implications;

  • there is no page enabling you to present your company
  • there is no possibility to display all different initiatives taken by your employees in a single overview
  • there is no automated sponsoring (of your employees) possible
  • the results of your group will not get listed on the company overview page.

 

By subscribing as a company, you support our platform  and you help us develop and improve the site.

Question: Can i only get a one-year contract?

Answer:

Yes,  we only set up companies for a year. During that year, all employees of the company can start up a challenge by using the company coupon.  After the one-year period the contract can be prolonged with a year or can be stopped.

When the contract has ended, the company coupon will be deactivated and no new challenges can be linked to the company.  The open challenges created via a company coupon will remain open until the challenger will close his or her challenge.

Silver, Gold and Platinum Module

Question: What is the difference between the 3 different modules?

Answer:

A company can enroll in one of the three modules.

The Silver module is the most simple one:

  • You can load your description and logo on the company page.
  • With this module, the company takes over the registration costs of its staff. In return, the employees connect their challenge to the company.
  • However, there is no report available and it is not possible to sponsor staff automatically .

     

The Golden module has various extra's available: 

  • You can automatically sponsor your employees.
  • In addition to automatically to the logo and descrition, you can add  a link to your coprorate website
  •  A handy quarterly report with clear information - perfect for your internal company communication


The Platinum module has got the following extras included:

  • the possibility of splitting the company pages into departments (to allow some fun competition between different offices, locations or departments within your company)
  • a monthly report with clear figures (external report: how  does the company performs  in comparison to other companies) (internal report: review how the departments perform in relation to each other)

Question: As of what module will i get a reporting?

Answer:

For the Silver module there is no reporting foreseen.

For the Gold module there is a quarterly reporting foreseen.  This report will show the performance of the different employees within the company

For the Platinum module there is a Monthly reporting foreseen. This report will show both the performance of the different employees within the company as the performance of your company in comparison to other participating companies.

Manage a company

Question: What am i supposed to do as a Company-Admin?

Answer:

The admin role shouldn't be too time-consuming.  The following actions are required when starting up a company.

  1. ensure the company information is up to date (like logo, description, background picture and link to the company website)
  2. ensure the employees are informed about the participation of the company
  3. inform the employees about the company code they should use when creating a challenge (in case of a platinum module - the code changes per sub-company)

Question: Can i transfer the Admin-role to a colleague?

Answer:

In order to change the admin of a company, the following steps need to be taken:

  1. The person replacing you needs to create a profile
  2. You need to fill out the template with the following information: Your emailaddress and name, the emailaddress of your replacement and the name of your Company.

Upon receipt, we will replace the administrator

Question: Is it possible to have multiple Company Admins?

Answer:

This is only possible with a Platinum module. In a Platinum module it is possible to create sub-companies and each subcompany can have its own administrator.

It is not possible to have multiple administrators for a Silver or Gold company or for a single subcompany

Social media

Question: How do I post my company information on Social Media?

Answer:

To post your challenge on Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn, you must first be logged on

  • Now select the "My Groups, Companies and Events" Tab in the Personal (green) menu
  • Select the edit button next to the company for which you want to create a post
  • Within the company you wil now see the links to Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn or theURL you can use to mail.

End of Contract

Question: What happens after the contract finished?

Answer:

After the contract ended, it will not be possible for your employees to start up a new challenge. The existing challenges will remain open for maximally another year. Once all challenges are closed, the final results will get displayed. These results will remain visible, even after the expiration of the contract.

Before the expiration of the contract, the Youlcee team will contact you for an eventual prolongiation of the contract.

Question: What will happen with the remaining credits?

Answer:

If your company has decided to sponsor its employees, it is possible that some workers do not or partially succeed in their challenge.

As a corporate admin, these credits will get returned on your account. These credits can be donated to other challengers.

If at the end of the contract, credits have not been allocated and there are no open challenges linked to the company, it is possible for these credits to be allocated to a test challenge. This challenge will get marked s100% succesful and the money will be automatically donated to charity.
