Kazoo Overview

What is Kazoo?

Kazoo is a cloud-based employee engagement and HR solution formed by the merger of HighGround and YouEarnedIt. Kazoo betters both the employee and manager experience by connecting and aligning organizations through employee-driven goals, continuous check-in conversations, peer-to-peer feedback, social recognition and pulse surveys.

Kazoo’s intuitive technology can be tailored to match organizations’ employee engagement goals, providing workforce insights that are essential to understanding organizational health and driving a positive company culture. With Kazoo, customers like Patagonia, Echo Global Logistics and Allianz have inspired employees to reach their full potential, increasing retention, productivity, customer satisfaction, and ultimately drive bottom line results.

Unlike traditional HR systems built for sole purpose of administration, Kazoo engages and inspires the modern employee. By turning annual, ineffective processes such as performance reviews, surveys and service awards into a real-time dialog, Kazoo’s employee engagement platform empowers companies to create continuous feedback with their workforces.

Kazoo great for employee recognition, okay for goals

Very happy with the employee recognition & rewards sections as mentioned above. It's very similar to a social feed view, with lots of various filters by teams/departments, etc. Goal setting portion is just average.

Decent experience with a good range of features

One of the best programs to motivate and reward team members!

The pros definitely outweigh the cons. Some people may take advantage of the system, but that goes for anything. It's better to focus on the positive side of things and reward those who definitely deserves it!

Very happy with the employee recognition & rewards sections as mentioned above. It's very similar to a social feed view, with lots of various filters by teams/departments, etc. Goal setting portion is just average.

Pros

The employee recognition portion is fantastic - if I was scoring on this alone, I would have given 5's. It's easy to recognize employees and also earn rewards, give team members points, etc.

Cons

I don't like the goal setting portion as much. The workflow isn't as intuitive. We switched over from Reflektive, which had employee complaints, but the workflow wasn't really much better than Reflektive. It does have slightly more features, but could be improved for a better user experience.

Pros

It is nice to have a performance management and a rewards and recognition system all in one platform. The Outlook plugin is nice too.

Cons

It would be nice to have some additional export functionality and some more flexibility. It is a pretty modern platform but still pretty narrowly focused into their way of doing things.

Pros

This was definitely a first of it's kind. I love how YouEarnedIt provided a platform to motivate and reward team members. The prizes were awesome, but I'd say the best part is the recognition that is actually announced to the entire company. It made me feel really good when someone gave me a shoutout over the YouEarnedIt platform! Kudos to this company for creating something like this!

Cons

The only downside to YouEarnedIt would be an internal one. I noticed some of my colleagues would give each other points just for the hell of it, or because the points were about to expire by the end of the month.

Pros

We have been using YouEarnedIt for 6+ months and I've really been enjoying it. It's super easy to navigate and has some pretty cool features. My company integrated 'rewards' - employees can cash in for rewards based on how many points they have. All in all, YEI is a great product for small/mid-sized companies and encourages good behavior.

Cons

In the short period of time we've been using YouEarnedIt, I haven't found anything negative to report. Overall - great product!
