Communication with Heart
Communication is crucial to everything we do. Whether it’s business, relationships, government, or landing people on the moon, good communication plays an incredibly important role. Recognition is no different. We understand the vital relationship between communication and recognition, and we’ve worked hard to make it even easier to recognize others through the platform by integrating with Slack. If you use Slack as a communication tool in your organization you can link your Awardco platform to Slack, and then proceed to recognize, reward, and build a culture of engagement all from one spot.
Recognition works when it's really simple, and we understand that. We wanted to be able to offer users the ability to recognize using their existing internal communication tools, and so we integrated with Slack to make that possible. With over 12 million daily active users, Slack is a major communication tool for thousands of companies. More communication tool integrations are coming in the future, and we're excited to begin that journey with Slack. - Steve Sonnenberg, CEO
Recognizing in Slack
After linking your Awardco and Slack accounts (it’s easy, don’t worry!) anyone in your organization will be able to use slack to recognize by typing /recognize directly into slack.
After typing /recognize and hitting enter users will see a recognition pop-up that asks who they want to recognize. After searching for another user and hitting submit, users will have the option to select which program to use to recognize, enter any recognition comments, and award points, if applicable.
After pressing submit the recognition will immediately be posted to the Slack channel and the recognition feed in the Awardco platform. If recognition approvals are needed the system will intuitively know this based on which program was selected by the user to recognize their peer. After approval the recognition will be posted in Slack and Awardco as normal.
The Awardco Slack integration is another step in our mission to inspire human connection through rewarding recognition, and we're excited to share that journey with you.
