About Us

Helping companies build unforgettable workplaces

Mediocre doesn’t cut it. We’re on a mission to help build the best cultures in the world

Our story

Founders, and longtime business partners, Jason Lindstrom and Bart Wisniowski have always shared a passion for bucket list adventures. Nothing fuels them more than checking these items off their list—and they had a feeling others felt the same.

So they asked themselves: What if we could help companies reward their people with bucket list items? How would that motivate teams, boost culture, and drive results? 

In 2015, they explored this idea and created Bucketlist Rewards. And companies immediately loved it.

Our vision

Since 2015, the Bucketlist Rewards team has grown to over 50 team members and have worked together to build the fully customizable recognition and rewards solution we offer today.

Our vision? To help more and more companies create their dream cultures and enhance the lives of thousands of employees—no matter their unique needs.

We’re dedicated to expanding our capabilities to ensure we’re always matching the needs of modern HR leaders—all while maintaining our high standards of customer experience and care.

“Our team at Bucketlist Rewards is made up of passionate and purpose-driven people who feel strongly about the role of our company in helping other organizations build their dream company cultures. We’re excited to continue to provide our expertise and solutions to companies to improve their work cultures and employee wellbeing through recognition and rewards.”
