InstantAwards™ is an easy to use tool which enables managers to send on the spot, personalized, monetary awards to recognize great behavior. The awards are in the form of instant, electronic shopping vouchers allowing for an instant and easy user journey to an award of the employees choice.
Easy, intuitive functionality
Sending an award is easy. Managers – or whoever has permissions to send awards – will have access to send monetary awards directly from the Social Recognition Wall (the ‘Send Award’ button will only show to those with the relevant permission).
To begin, they choose the recipient(s) to a total of up to 50 recipients for any one award, – great for recognizing an individual or a team of people. There's an easy-to-use employee search tool which uses additional fields, to give the sender confidence that the award goes to the right person.
The sender will be presented with the award options that have been set up on their program, often these tend to be tiered in relation to the discretionary effort shown. After selecting the award option, the sender selects the award image. These are fully customized to the client and often linked to the company’s values, helping to demonstrate what great behavior looks with real life examples of employees demonstrating those values in the day to day.
Personalized and meaningful
Next up is the ability to personalize the award with a message to the recipient. This is crucial to the process as it allows opportunity for the manager to communicate exactly why the employee deserved this award, linking it to a particular behavior. This eduates the employee on behaviors to replicate and, if shared on the social wall, helps to educate the rest of the workforce too.
We know that the best recognition message are specific, meaningful, timely, align to company values, and are shared socially. That’s why it’s really important to write specific examples of the behaviors and actions the employees showed to receive their recognition moment!
The last step is to choose how much the award is worth and select the ‘Pot’ that they want the funds to come out of. Once confirmed, the award will be sent and instantly received by the recipient – ensuring their award is received on the spot.
We provide the education needed to ensure managers feel confident and empowered to use the InstantAwards™ program. Implementation is flexible to allow our clients to set up a program which is best for them. They can set the award tiers they want, the pots they want, the eCards they want, and, well, everything else. We communicate these ‘rules’ to managers via channels which make the most sense, can run educational webinars and host content on the platform itself in an exclusive managers only area. We work with our clients to achieve the most success.
