Pros: This low-cost, web-based employee recognition program is intuitive and easy to navigate both for end users and program administrators.

Easily compliments a robust employee recognition strategy by offering leaders, managers, and staff an additional venue for sharing and receiving recognition.

Recognition is linked to specific behaviors that demonstrate and exemplify company values and service standards, which serves to sustain an organizational culture. The program also facilitates and encourages peer-to-peer recognition and team-based recognition.

The layout resembles popular social media websites so navigation is intuitive and no user training is needed. Ease of use supports rapid adoption.

The ability of users to customize profiles with gender-neutral avatars or profile photos allow staff authentic self-expression and supports diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace. Translation services allow users to further customize their experience.

The technology is reliable and we rarely experience technical issues (which are always minor). When users request service, support is always impressively responsive.

Cons: This software can help sustain an organizational culture but isn't a comprehensive solution to employee recognition. Organizations that don't have other recognition tactics already in place or launched alongside this program risk disengaging employees. Recognition efforts still need to be reflective of the full range of staff needs but this program certainly helps meet the need for a public venue to recognize and connect staff across an international organization with a large geographic footprint.

Overall: We were able to quickly launch a customized program without investing internal IT resources into developing the solution.

Pros: The recognition software is intuitive and intelligent, offering enterprise-style features at a low per-employee cost. It is simple to launch and easy to administer with a suite of integrations to manage data directly from your HR database or publish recognition through Yammer, Chatter or Slack channels.

The focus on recognition, not financial reward, takes the pressure off budgets but if you do want to add rewards to your program, the financial management is transparent, allowing you to easily track spend. Manager Perks are a great feature, allowing you to give out personlised low-cost 'perks' to keep your recognition program fun and engaging.

Reporting is one of the standout features of this software, with useable insights delivered dashboard style. Reports roll up from an employee level to give team insights to managers and detailed analysis to directors.

Overall, outstanding software that is flexible and delivers great recognition features without a big price tag.

Cons: A couple of the set-up steps could be simplified, something I understand is being addressed in future versions.

The Workstars product was the perfect choice to meet our recognition and engagement needs.

Pros: The technology is user friendly, fun to navigate and easy to adopt. Our employees have commented that it has been fun and has not added any extra work to their day. As a leader, the program has wonderful analytics and reporting capability that allows me both a bird's eye view and necessary details to measure the successes and tell the story of our recognition and engagement needs. The team at Workstars has been committed to our success since day one. Their commitment and customer service has been extraordinary! I highly recommend Workstars.
