Bonusly is fun to use, easy to navigate, and builds high performing cultures.

How Betterworks could be better


Betterworks user experience leaves much to be desired. Users report struggling with usability which lowers participation rates.

A former user on Capterra shares:

“We used it for a couple of years, but it was difficult to get everyone at the firm to adopt. The frequency of updates and changes to the look and feel of the interface added to the challenge.”


Betterworks support is lacking and slow to respond.

One user on Capterra describes:

“It takes 6 months of us pushing them [Betterworks] for anything to be done. In general support tickets seem to get passed up to the technical team which then acts a black hole from which no support ever emerges again.”


Betterworks users have a steep learning curve when adopting the platform. 

One verified user reports to TrustRadius:

“The platform is not very user friendly and requires training” and other users report it’s confusing due to lack of consistency across the platform."

Meanwhile, here’s what customers say about Bonusly on G2:

One of the best vendors I have ever worked with

"Honestly, I love everything about Bonusly, starting with the stellar customer service to the attention to detail of our integration and the personalized service they offer. The customer success team is a pleasure to work with, no matter the size of your team. The integration resource package was excellent"

Gabriela P.
Global Team PM, Mid-Market
Great recognition tool for positive company culture!

"Bonusly allows co-workers to recognize each other and award each other for little things (like a job well done) to big things (Birthdays, promotions, work anniversaries)."

Lisa B.
Senior Accountant, Mid-Market
Great tool for employee retention

I like how we're able to see who has received recognition and how easy it is to recognize other people on the team. It's straightforward to select the amount to send to the person, why you're giving it to them and the hashtags associated to why you're recognizing them.

Chris K.

Elliot T.

Recognition at Work

"The most helpful feature of Bonusly is the reporting analytics. I can easily see who is using it, who needs a little recognition, and it allows us to calculate our quarterly award winners for core value representation."

Amy W
Founder & CEO, Small-Business
Fun way to maximize recognition within the workplace

"I really like that it encourages us to give kudos to people within the workplace that really make an impact. Whether its simply helping me with something, or jumping in to help a whole team, we can reward those that do a lot for our company..."

Dillon S.
Great Morale Booster

"Allows everyone to show gratitude in a genuine and meaningful way. The reward boosts are really a bonus to the kind words and appreciation from colleagues."

Taylor K.
A great application to praise your colleague's work

"It's fun, it's a great way to be thankful and recognize your colleagues for the great work they do, and what I like about Bonusly is that amount of companies they work with to redeem gift cards or donating money. I would also thank Bonusly for the ease of use, it's very user friendly."

Charlie M.
Makes it amazingly simple to say thanks or make a shout out!

"Using Bonusly is super simple and quick to use. It clearly spells out how you want to make a shout out, and within seconds you are done!"

Nick K.
Great way to spread kindness & generate a great team culture!

"I think it's fantastic that the point can be redeemed with SOOO many different options from gift cards to donations to charity there is something for everyone to gain by using their points each month and wanting to get points to redeem!"

How Bonusly delivers:
Within our platform, employees consistently exchange recognition and feedback in harmony with company values. This fosters an ideal environment for enhancing motivation, development, and performance.

How Bonusly delivers:
Our top-notch solution saves hours per week by automating time-consuming tasks, reducing administrative burden. Its intuitive, user-friendly features and seamless integrations enable you to operate at peak efficiency from the start.

How the competition lags behind:
Using a poorly designed and less intuitive platform for your performance program will result in time wasted and frustrated employees.

Boost retention rates

How the competition lags behind: There is a direct correlation between high retention rates and an exceptional reward and performance system. It’s a connection overlooked by competitors.
