As an employee, your co-workers may step in and assist you with an urgent customer phone call, or even stay back at work for a few hours to help you finish your current project. In these scenarios, shouting out your coworkers is a good way to show your appreciation for the extra work they have contributed.
The shout outs feature on the company feed allows you to do just this, post a public message to either your team or the whole organisation thanking a co-worker for their help. You can also use this feature to comment on a shout post made by yourself or another employee.
HR Best Practice
You would use this feature as an informal means to show your appreciation to your colleagues and teammates for any hard work they have put in. Remember, there is no approval step before the HR platform shares the shout-out to the company feed, therefore please review the contents before posting the message.
Creating a culture that promotes shout-outs boosts morale and ensures employees feel appreciated for the work they do. Should you wish to send a more formal recognition that links to the Company Values within your organisation, you can use the Recognition feature.
