Peer-to-Peer Recognition

Employee Engagement inspires the building of connections. Connections between people, and to the workplace. Social Recognition tells teammates their contributions are valued. Applaudit builds community. It’s easy to send peer appreciation (E-ppreciation) with a personal message, including photos, stickers or memes. Other teammates can add their applause to continue the celebration of achievement in the conversation feed. Managers can boost any E-ppreciation with points for added inspiration. Points are redeemable in a rich Rewards Mall.

Years of Service Awards

Taking the time to acknowledge Years of Service is a basic strategy to boost Engagement. Applaudit enables the celebration of important employment anniversaries, whether it’s a Millennial’s first year or Milestones of five, ten, fifteen years or more. Service anniversaries appear in the conversation feed and upcoming Milestones are featured on the page. A special tool is ready to help you create a certificate of appreciation, to be personalized by the manager. The event is triggered automatically, so no-one is forgotten.

Celebrating Team Accomplishments

Success is a team effort. Applaudit provides the tools to recognize a group of people, ensuring that all contributors are acknowledged for all to see. Other teammates can tag and comment to include additional employees, and managers can amplify the effect of applause by adding points to their congratulations. Valuing all members of a group effort drives Engagement.

Manager Spot Awards

Great managers acknowledge achievements in the moment. Recognition by leaders lets everyone know they’re on the right track. Applaudit’s manager E-ppreciation is easy across all mobile devices, so managers are free to recognize on the go or in the office. Team leaders can boost recognition with points to redeem in the Rewards Mall. The lasting impression sustains the recipient’s motivation and extends it to others. Other managers can echo the applause by adding points, sparking inter-departmental and group cooperation. Recognition becomes part of the employee’s Applaudit profile, providing important insight for coaching and performance reviews.
