To send recognition through Slack: Sending Recognition Using Slack
Global | Reward & Recognition | Default text removed from non-monetary recognition landing pages
Following feedback from our clients, we have removed the copy text at the bottom of non-monetary landing pages. Clients use non-monetary recognition for so many different initiatives and purposes (e.g. end-of-year bonus, COVID work from home allowance, etc.); having default text is no longer appropriate to cover all use cases.
We hope this can help clients feel more confident that the award landing page can suit different types of initiatives, especially as the busy end-of-year awards period approaches.
The change is live for non-monetary AwardFilePlus, Scheduled Recognition and Nominations. This change does not affect monetary awards (including Instant Awards), as the content of monetary landing pages is different.
UK | Flex Benefits | Insurance benefits leaver rules
We have implemented new functionality for insurance benefits hosted through our platform which allows us to set a custom cover end date when a member cancels their cover or leaves employment.
Insurance benefits sometimes vary in terms of when the cover ends when a member cancels or leaves the company. Up until now, we offered a static rule that simply didn't allow us to be as flexible as we want to be. The new functionality allows us to support multiple rules and accurately report the end date to the client and provider.
