How does social recognition impact employee engagement?

A strong culture of continuous employee recognition can only be created with integrated, visible moments of recognition. And many organizations find it difficult to create a space which allows recognition to cut through the clutter of other announcements and notifications. Social recognition programs put the spotlight on moments of recognition by seamlessly integrating into an engagement platform, making it easy to showcase and celebrate successes across your entire organization.

How does social recognition work?

Within Reward Gateway's employee recognition tools, our social recognition wall feature is used to publicly announce and hold up both peer-to-peer and manager-to-employee recognition across your entire organization. Using the same social media interactions which employees are already using in their daily habits, your team can congratulate others using the “Like” button, emoji reactions and commenting on specific awards. Finding new ways to put employee recognition in the spotlight helps deepen connections through continuous moments of recognition.

Why use social recognition?

Our clients see an average of 73% increase in peer-to-peer recognition when the social recognition feature is activated. Keep recognition front and center by using social tools to showcase moments of recognition and extend the experience to anyone who sees it. Employees can tag their peers in comments to further recognize their colleagues and allow for on-the-spot recognition.

"We are really enjoying using this (the recognition tool). With multiple locations and staff so spread out, it's difficult to help them feel like they are a part of our organization. This has helped our staff become more unified."
