Integrated employee recognition platform

4.8/5 (21 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.

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.

Pros

Functionality looks good, easy to use, and has a similarity to social media. Peer recognition capability is a good thing.

Cons

Their integrity is highly lacking.

Recognize has no integrity. We were working with them and planning to use them when a superior platform came to our attention -- one that, for very little more cost, provided not only a peer recognition platform but also a performance review and feedback platform and an amazingly robust employee engagement survey platform. The peer recognition platform of the superior company is virtually identical to Recognize in functionality. However, we paid for Recognize, prior to hearing about the other platform. But when we informed Recognize that we had changed our mind, we got ZERO refund. Not even partial. The ONLY work Recognize had done was create our company's page. We hadn't even loaded our users' names. Literally no implementation occurred. And not only did they refuse any refund, even partial, they completely ignored my calls, letters, and emails. Seven or eight months later, their sales guy sends me an email asking if I'd like to see a new demo?? Um, no. It's safe to say not only will Recognize never get any business from me, no matter what company I'm with, but any time someone asks me about Recognize they will learn of Recognize's sleazy behavior. They made 100% profit on us and delivered literally nothing.

great at making associates feel appreciated.

Pros

We were having a tough time finding a recognition platform that was parallelled into the Yammer system so that our employees did not have to leave the current platform. But then we found Recognize, and it was everything we were looking for. Overall a great product. It has the most friendly staff and knowledgeable at that.

Cons

The only downside is to use it inside Yammer we have to download a browser extension. But I can honestly say that that is the only con with this software. Really worth the time and investment to recognize employees.
