The LeverX team developed a culture benefits platform that delivers an immersive employer experience, ensuring better recognition of HR work, and improving the company’s overall image.




Our customer wanted to create a solution that would help simplify interactions between businesses, companies’ departments, their employees, and third-party service providers.


The platform allows users to provide on-site and online services to employees, including simple access to corporate insurance programs, wellness initiatives, social events, or internal interest groups.


The primary goal of our customer was to bring more value to companies by providing their employees with quick access to corporate benefit programs, sports activities, reimbursement programs, events, affinity groups, and internal communities.

They sought to create a complete platform that would bring together employers, workers, and third-party service suppliers. The project’s objective was to make it easy for companies to offer their workers different onsite services, from car washes, dry cleaning, or beauty procedures to visa support.

Finding a business model that was precisely tailored for the adoption of the variety of services that the platform would need to support was one of our biggest challenges while developing the solution.

Our Contribution

The LeverX — Emerline team has been involved in all stages of the project, including architecture, design, development, implementation, and support, for both web and mobile (iOS and Android) solutions.

It took us less than 12 months to turn the idea into a fully functioning platform. With an ongoing development process, we continue to enrich the product with gradual improvements.

To support all the services a company might want to offer, our teams established a wide range of integrations, including those with calendars (Google Calendar, Outlook, and iCalendar), communication & collaboration tools (Slack), payment systems (Stripe), health data sources (Headspace and ClassPass), Global Reward Systems, Blackhawk gift cards, etc. Other integrations included those for custom reports, as well as integration with SFTP and Analytics systems. 

Solution Description

The system offers a wide range of onsite and online services on a single platform. This ensures easy management, ordering, and payment for different onsite services, from training programs to laundry. It links corporate units and individual employees, allowing businesses to facilitate effective dialogue with team members.

The six main modules are: 

Events management enables users to create virtual employee meetings, meetups, office hour slots, multi-track events, and gym schedules while monitoring attendance and involvement based on excellent on-demand analytics.

Wellbeing + Fitness facilitates access to off-site classes, including those offered by top-tier partners.

Reimbursements + Allowances enables employees to take advantage of reimbursement programs globally and in any currency.

Challenges + Achievements supports gamified and mobile challenges for individuals and teams with the opportunity to reward employees for participation in activities.

Rewards + Recognition leverages a culture of appreciation in the organization, recognizing and sharing employees' accomplishments in a meaningful and timely way.

Employee Resource Groups help to build business culture by connecting employees throughout the organization and supporting formal and informal interest groups.
