How it works
(It’s so easy!)
Peer-to-peer recognition in 5 easy steps
1. Name your recipient
Recognize one person or a whole group; peers, managers, or direct reports, and tag additional people (like managers) to tell them about the recognition you gave.
2. Pick the points
Add points to your post! Your teammates will redeem them for rewards. Your company-funded monthly points allowance is typically 100 to 200 points, or $10 to $20 per person.
3. Share the reason
Why are you recognizing this person? Get specific! Celebrate individual contributions and highlight action(s) someone took that are important to you and your organization.
4. Include hashtags and GIFs
Add company-value hashtags to your posts to bring visibility to your organizational values. Drop GIFs, images, links, or emoji into your post to make it expressive and personal.
5. Give an add-on
Anyone can give recognition—peers, managers, direct reports, and executives—and other people can add onto that recognition to show their appreciation. Double the delight!
Benefits of peer-to-peer recognition
Bonusly’s peer recognition brings more frequent moments of appreciation to your company. That creates a culture of recognition and positivity. Check out the other benefits:
Clarify the impact of work
When peers recognize each other’s work, it’s posted on a public recognition feed. Employees see how their work impacts other teams and learn about what’s happening in other departments. Recognition means more when it comes from people who are directly familiar with
Take the onus off managers alone
Managers can’t track every action that happens on their teams, so Bonusly makes it easy for managers to effortlessly track recognition their reports receive elsewhere and use that data in performance reviews. Bonusly also takes the onus off managers and leadership to do all the championing and cheerleading.
Connect in remote or hybrid environments
How do you keep everyone connected and on the same page when they aren’t together as often (or at all)? Bonusly operates in real time, so it’s flexible, visible, and accessible all the time. People can connect with and support each other whenever it’s convenient and as often as they’d like.
