The traditional supervisor-subordinate recognition is outdated. That’s why a peer-to-peer recognition tool is the first step in fostering a culture of appreciation. Back in our 2014 Employee Engagement Report, we found that peers, in fact, want to recognize their colleagues if you give them a simple tool to use.

Employee recognition

People need an easy way to recognize their colleagues for the time and effort they put into their day-to-day tasks — big or small. These are the three features you need to look for when deciding which recognition program to go with:


01. Digital accessibility

In today’s digital world, everyone expects their tools to match. Make sure the tool you go with works across all electronic devices — computers, tablets, and smartphones.

02. 24/7 availability

Great deeds can happen at any time. Look for a tool that is always available so people can recognize those random acts of kindness on the spot.


03. Shareability

Getting recognized is great, but being able to let others know how hard you’ve worked is even better. Make sure your tool allows you to easily share recognition across your organization.
