This week's releases
Global | Employee Recognition and Reward | Self-nomination and employee suggestion programs
We've launched the capability for employees to nominate themselves for recognition and reward on their Nominations program. This allows them to submit their own achievements and ideas for recognition and share them with managers more consistently.
Clients who would like to have self-reported recognition activated on the Nominations program should speak with their Client Success Manager.
Once it is switched on employees will be able to search and find their own name in their usual nomination form. (We recommend that clients using this feature should always link employees to specific approvers, through the Open Nominee or Closed nomination methods.)
This feature is ideal for:
- Clients with dispersed workforces (e.g. predominantly offline, scattered across several locations, or heavily relying on working from home)
- Clients who run employee suggestion programs, and want to attach recognition to the best ideas
- Clients that rely on self-reported recognition
