Giving employee recognition | HR Employee Content

As an employee, your coworkers may step in to help you with difficult customer calls, or even stay back on multiple occasions at work for a few hours to help you finish your current project. In these scenarios recognising your coworkers is a good way to give them that extra special recognition for the work they have put it to help you in your role and in meeting your deliverables.

The Recognition feature on the company feed allows you to do just this, post a public message to the whole organisation showcasing a coworker who lives up to your organisation's values. You can also use this feature to comment on a recognition made by yourself or another employee, and if you made the comment, delete this information if needed.


Please note that your posts, shoutouts, and company feed announcements do not auto-save during the creation process, and you will need to re-type your post or announcement if you quit this page without posting your message.

HR Best Practise

This feature recognises employees who have gone above and beyond regarding their normal roles and responsibilities or hours worked. Therefore, it is important that you give a sound reason for the recognition. When you are recognising your teammate, do not forget to provide specific details about the project or task that have contributed to you putting them forward for the recognition. 

The platform links recognition posts to your company values and has an approval step before it will share the recognition to the company feed. Should you wish to send a more informal recognition, you can use the shout-out feature, where there is no approval step.
