Why Are Live Events Trending?
Brands may believe that traditional employee rewards are what engage, retain and motivate employees. We found that’s not the case. According to a study from The Harris Poll on behalf of TFL, seven in 10 American workers said they “value experiences such as live events more than material things.” So much so that on average, working Americans spent $802 on live events in the last year.
Additionally, 64% of working Americans want to attend more live events next year, with the average American employee wanting to attend 11 more in 2024.

The Live Event
Because working Americans consider live events beneficial to their well-being, having access to tickets as an employee incentive is a no-brainer. Despite 72% of American workers wishing their company offered free or heavily discounted live event tickets as a perk, only 24% say their employers do.
This presents a major opportunity for employers, which, if capitalized on, can lead to employee retention, satisfaction and engagement.
Advantages of Adding Live Events
as an Employee Incentive
Working Americans have raised their standards for benefits packages, with 68% agreeing they expect more from employers than three years ago in terms of work-life benefits. By adding live events to your employee benefits package, your company can realize returns in the workplace.
That’s where we come in. Whether you’re a corporation, employee rewards provider or a perks hub looking to expand your offerings, TFL’s technology stocks your dollars-based, points-based or split-tender-based system with sports, concert and theater tickets, ensuring that all employees feel appreciated.
With the option of a private label website or API integration, you can offer employee rewards such as discounted live event tickets the way you want to. We recommend using the private label website that will be branded to your company. This option will get you up and running faster and more efficiently. If you’re not ready for a whole new website, your developer can embed our ticket inventory into your employee portal.
You can even choose from our templates or create something custom.Learn More

Do I have to pay any fees?
The cost will vary depending on the integration. For pricing details, please see our technology page for details.
