Integrated employee recognition platform

4.9/5 (28 reviews)

Recognize Overview

Recognize is an integrated employee recognition system that offers SMBs a single platform from which to engage with employees and recognize their contribution. Incorporating automatic employee anniversary recognition, on-the-spot social employee recognition and nomination voting, Recognize aims to deliver a smart employee recognition solution.

Designed to promote a positive company culture, Recognize equips users with different employee recognition tools including social gamification, service anniversaries and rewards as well as awards and nominations. In order to manage rewards effectively, Recognize enables users to create their own rewards catalog complete with experiences which employees can redeem with points. Besides rewards, users can create certificates of recognition, produce badges of recognition and send employees text messages of recognition easily.

To enhance user productivity, Recognize supports a number of integrations including Outlook, Yammer, Sharepoint and Azure. By supporting such third party integrations, users can utilize single sign on, import user spreadsheets alongside user data simply and efficiently. Moreover, since users can sign into Office 365, Slack and Google Apps automatically, Recognize enables users to access their platform quickly and conveniently from their specific work account.

Recognize is also available as a native mobile application for iOS and Android, thereby granting users the flexibility to view company recognitions and redeem rewards on the move from any smartphone device.

Overall the tool serves most of our needs. Employees are able to recognize each other easily across the globe.

Pros

I like the ease of use and the recognition steam. It's easy to make a new badge and to use the administrative side of the tool. It's a very simple interface overall. We have staff in over 100 countries and they are able to easily communicate their appreciation to each other now.

Cons

I wish that there were better/more reporting features. My company is generating a lot of data but we have no way to retrieve and disseminate it. Seeing the recognition badges are great but we want to know more about who is using the tool and how they are using it. Even with the Admin Dashboard we see the User and Recognition numbers for today, this week, and total, but what about last week? I've already forgotten how many users we had last week and no way to find that out.

Very good experience overall, great customer support and helpful account team!

Pros

It's easy for employees to use. Great way to show recognition

Cons

It has pretty simplistic reporting capabilities and the info is not always clean (employees aren't always in the department/teams they should be in).

Response from Recognize

Thanks for the review! Let us know what type of reporting you need and we can investigate. We build custom reports for customers, such as our latest engagement reports by roles.

For user management, we recommend the sFTP, Azure AD, or Yammer user sync as that keeps users data up to date automatically every night.

Feeling the love

As an individual it has been fun to receive recognitions from my peers. This has helped to motivate me to continue providing my best self to my work and for my colleagues.

As a manager, the reviews my line reports receive help me to recognize their achievements in half- and end of year reviews and if bonuses or raises are warranted.

Pros

The software is simplistic, intuitive, and easy to navigate. Giving others praise is on the main screen and easy to be noticed. I love how it auto-fills names as I type and how I'm able to recognize multiple people at one time. The home screen with the stream of reviews is nice to see what others are saying and doing around the company. I personally prefer the 'kiosk' view as opposed to 'latest' and 'popular'. The kiosk view fits more reviews into the viewing screen. Seeing the comments of others helps me to know how to articulate recognitions I wish to give to others. The layout and structure is intuitive and easy to navigate. I can readily see filter for my department and my region.

Cons

Some times when writing a review I stumble over words, so it would be awesome if Recognize App provided "smart" suggestions, so as I write a review it provides suggestions on things to mention or provide. If this is not possible a simple tutorial providing "best practices" for writing and using the software would be greatly appreciated.

Changing Culture - Necessary Tools

Review Source: Capterra

When engaging your workforce, one of the most important aspects of that engagement is thanking an employee for their hard work, beyond the realm of the performance review. The software is the tool that helps us to reinforce the culture of praise in such a way that it also helps to connect-the-dots between the actions of the employee and the benefit to the company. We couldn't be happier with our decision to work with RecognizeApp!!

Pros

The software was easy to implement - it's extremely easy to use and most importantly, IT WORKS GREAT.

Cons

Honestly - can't think of anything negative...
