Working from home comes with its challenges—communication issues, loneliness, and technical difficulties, to name a few. 19% of remote employees even report loneliness as their biggest challenge. Aside from increasing communication with coworkers while everyone is out-of-office —through tools like Slack and Zoom—giving some extra recognition for peoples' hard work will help to combat wfh loneliness. Our new endorse a colleague feature is the perfect way to keep your teams connected (virtually) with one another and to feel appreciated from afar.
41% of companies that use peer-to-peer recognition have seen positive increases in customer satisfaction.
With endorsements, users will be able to engage with each other by sending a personalized message—praising their latest achievement, for example. Additionally, if you use rewards, users will be able to send coins as a gift to a coworker.
Tips & Tricks
At SalesScreen, we use categories to give more context for the endorsements. We combine meaningful endorsements along with our company values. We recommend that you set this up by going to Manage → Settings → Endorsement.
A few examples:
- Team player👯♂️
- Silent Assassin🐱👤
Today, you can use scheduled events to award the MVP of the month based on data. With endorsements, you can award the employee of the month based on soft values or a combination of both, if you prefer.
When setting up endorsement categories you have the option to limit how many a given user can give within a month. This is to make them more exclusive and to have a bigger impact. If you are using the reward module in SalesScreen you can give coins when endorsing employees. This will also increase the impact and importance of receiving an endorsement. As a manager, this could be a great way of giving out special recognition to someone that truly deserves it.
Stay safe – stay productive – endorse a colleague!
