New in Zestful: program creation, templates, and in-platform white labeling

Over the past year, a particularly bright spotlight has been placed on the importance of employee perks in the workplace.

A 2018 survey by Clutch found that companies that offer additional perks to their employees—such as wellness programs or meal plan options—have seen increased efficiency, reduced turnover, and an uptick in positive company culture overall.

The study also revealed that two out of five companies offer no employee perks at all. However, 53% of those who do have access to a variety of perks, from free cereal in-office to more flexible working hours, say that those perks give them a better quality of life.

Zestful’s mission is to make it easier for companies of all sizes to give this better quality of life to their entire workforce.

Introducing: New Program creation, perk templates, and custom white labeling

Following our recent funding round, our team has been investing heavily in our product to ensure a more user-friendly experience for new and current customers alike.

As a result, we’ve completely redesigned the way individuals create Zestful perk Programs, added popular perk templates that users can quickly select and implement for their team, and added a functionality that allows companies to customize their in-platform experience.


  1. Previously, perk Program types were broken up into separate categories. Now, all Programs will show in one list, can be filtered by Program type, and can now be customized with unique Program names.
  2. For even easier Program creation, without having to create from scratch, users can select from a list of pre-built, popular perk Programs for easy plug & play. Plus, admins always have the ability to further customize these Programs after creation.
  3. To create a new Program in Zestful, to start, quickly select from four Program types, customize, and go. 🏃‍♀️
  4. Last but not least, Zestful now offers the ability to white label your company’s dashboard! Change the color of the website to match your branding and replace the Zestful logo in the upper left corner with your own.

New Program homepage and creation

There are four types of Programs in Zestful: Allowances, birthdays & anniversaries, Peer to Peer, and starting balances.

Previously, admins in Zestful had separate tabs for some Programs within their dashboard, making the process of offering new perks to their team clunky, confusing, and time-consuming. Now, all Programs are located in one central location (under the “Programs” tab).

The new homepage enables the filtering of Programs by type, team, or person. Admins can also view and edit Programs within this dashboard, including changing amounts, recipients, and what the Program can be used on, post-creation.

Additionally, our new and improved builder makes it easier for admins to create new, completely custom perks for their teams. Users now have one place to build new perks by choosing a Program from our “most popular” tab, or creating a new Program completely from scratch (which features a new, much smoother workflow).

New Allowance creation

Allowances are the most robust and customizable Program type in Zestful. Formerly, the downside of this also meant that the process of customizing a new Allowance took more steps than necessary. Because of this, we’ve revamped the Allowance creation flow to offer a shiny, new, more simplified process.

In the new Allowance flow, there are expandable customizations and a new “advanced” modal, allowing customers to choose as few or as many options as they’d like.

Custom white labeling

In just a few clicks—and in real-time—you can now trick out your company’s dashboard. Simple choose a color (or add your own) and upload your own logo to show in-platform. 🎨

Bonus: We have a new website!

And, as if that’s not enough, we’ve also given our site a bit of a facelift. 😍

Our new design showcases a few of the things we love most about working in HR technology: diversity, creativity, and just a little bit of humor.

Explore our new site now, and let us know what you think on Twitter @getzestful!

We’re so excited about these changes and look forward to continuing to serve our current customers, as well as new friends, for months (and years!) to come. Thanks for being along for the ride.
