Pros: Can't say enough good things about Bonus.ly. Their awesome integrations are top notch (Single Sign-On with Office 365/Azure AD, Syncs with our HR system Zenefits, Bots for MS Teams/Slack). Also, when we've had hiccups, the Support team has always been extremely responsive.

We spend hundreds of dollars on SaaS apps per user. Adding $25 to allow employees to reward each others hard work and dedication with a coffee or beer (or Amazon gift card)...is no brainer.

Supporting and securing modern cloud mesh applications is stressful work for our hard working engineers and support team members. Bonus.ly provides some additional ways to reward inter and intra team comradery.

Lastly, the integration with our culture and values by requiring each bonus be hashtagged with one or more company values gives us great analytics to our top performers and alignment. It's tangible data that highlights the team members accomplishments through the year. helping at performance reviews.

PS - Did I mention it pretty much runs itself (users auto created/deleted based on HR status + Single Sign-On for Office 365 or Google means no extra passwords to remember)?

Cons: That we didn't implement it sooner at our organization.

Overall: Great!

Pros: I like the platform's automatic fulfillment and we use custom awards which are really cool. The ability to select cash increments is nice. The custom naming of points (we call them "Sploints" in our office) is awesome. Appreciate the slack integration.

Cons: It would be cool if my staff were able to trade their points. Sometimes we do Poker nights, and would be fun for our staff to trade away the points that they've earned. I find the interface used to be very confusing to find where I can configure things. I wish that we could use more hashtags than the current limit. I find in our slack log, gets a bit crazy when everyone "adds" to someone elses's bonus. Would be nice to either have a toggle to shut that particular slack message off (others bonusing on an existing bonus) or somehow consolidate.

Overall: Team micro-bonusing allows our staff to recognize each other regularly, which is very important.

by Bonusly on May 17, 2018

Thank you for your feedback, Brian! We really appreciate it! I agree, the custom rewards feature rocks! It's wonderful to hear that the Slack integration is appreciated; we also use it at Bonusly and it makes giving a bonus and keeping up with your teammates so easy!

Poker nights sound like a fun team-building activity! (We're game night enthusiasts around here, too!) It would be fun to tie Bonusly in with your poker nights though! Perhaps some custom rewards such as starting chips, or a cool hat to wear while playing? Just a thought!

We would love to go over the interface and configuration with you, as well as the slack notifications to see what we can do to help! Would you mind contacting us at support@bonus.ly? We can touch base about those, and any other questions you have! I'm looking forward to hearing from you, and thanks again for the feedback!

Pros: It's easy to use. Minimal set up and basically no maintenance at all. It also integrates well with the other tools we use, like Office 365 and Slack, so people can see a live feed of bonuses that are given around the company. There are some basic analytics and fun analytics (like a word map created out of the terms used in bonuses during the past 30 days). And they are introducing new features regularly. Recently, they developed an alert system to help prevent fraudulent bonus distribution (which may be a concern for large organizations).

Cons: I can't really put anything in this column. The only thing that could be improved on would probably be adding more granularity to their analytics and perhaps longer timelines for their analytics. But even those things have improved in the last few years that we have been using the software. They are always improving.

Overall: This software is an incredible tool for praise and peer-to-peer bonuses. We see it consistently improve people's satisfaction with work. You can redeem your bonuses from a wide variety of vendors, from Amazon gift cards to giving donations to the Red Cross. I cannot recommend this software enough!

Pros: The Bonusly system is extremely easy to use. It requires basically zero training. Our employees love the opportunity to recognize and reward each other.

We started using the system as part of the launch of our core values, intending to only use it 2-3 months. It's been a positive enough experience, though, we can't stop now!

The system forces users to tie the micro bonus to one or more predefined hashtags. We have hashtags for each of our core values. This gives us a daily reinforcement of how we apply our core values to real life situations and recognizes/rewards employees for doing so.

Cons: There are only 3 downsides. 1.) You are introducing a new cost into the business, so you need to make sure it's worth it. For us, it has been. 2.) Some of our users report the mobile app doesn't work well, so they will only use the actual website. 3.) The analytics package is amazing, however you can't really share the analytics (like the word map) easily outside of the admin module.

Honestly, these seem kind of nit-picky. The positives significantly outweigh the negatives.

We were worried that employees might game the system and just give bogus bonuses to one another. We haven't had any problems with that. They give meaningful and motivating bonuses.

Such a great and easy program enabling micro-bonus for acknowledging peers

Pros: Very easy to use, integrations with Slack make it even easier, automation and reporting great to ease administration. Rewards available are great and even being able to create your own.

Cons: don't like the pricing model of the automated birthday/anniversary, for what it offers seems a bit steep

Overall: enables others to give shout-outs to others in the low admin way. Our teams have really taken to this program and it has helped improve moral and has become a part of our culture

Thank you for your feedback, Alann! We're so happy to hear that Bonusly is enabling your users to acknowledge and encourage each other for their hard work! We also love the Slack integration, and use it ourselves!

Birthdays and Anniversaries aren't the only fun things offered in Bonusly Pro! One of my favorite parts of the program is Funds, which is included in Pro. We also offer additional integrations with the Pro plan.

If you'd like to review the Pro options and how they could benefit your team, or if there's ever anything we can do to improve your Bonusly experience, please let us know at success@bonus.ly! Thank you for being a Bonusly customer!

Pros: Easy to use

Presented well

Updates of ideas for gifts

Fantastic software that is provided to allow staff to acknowledge team memebers. This allows the Organisation to give incentives/encouragement to receive gift/gifts once earned enough points. This has also allowed staff to have group lunches which also encourages team morale with their points.

Cons: To be honest I find it straight forward.

I have in the past had a few issue's with updating our credit card details. Had updated, but still received email that we owed funds.

I find since you made a few changes the platform has a better flow to follow

Overall: As mentioned before, I believe Bonusly is a software program that allows staff to acknowledge each other and boost morale in the Office.

The Company is shown to care and provide an extra incentive to their staff.

Pros: Our team loves the opportunity to promptly reward positive behavior and helpful acts of service with something tangible like a Bonusly reward. We had been doing shout-outs already, but to actually pair a shout-out with a financial reward that you can save up has been received very well. Most of our staff make sure they use up their allotment by the end of the month. I like that it's easy to reward individuals and teams and let everyone know what I see them or their peers doing really well.

Cons: We didn't like the leaderboard very much as our team works so closely together that it felt counter-productive to introduce this competitive aspect. It made the people at the bottom feel bad and the people at the top felt kind of embarrassed/like they didn't deserve the extra recognition more than many others. We asked the team to remove it and they asked us if we were sure - and then made the changes for us, which everyone appreciated. Not importantly at all, the emoticons are difficult to add using a laptop.

Overall: Using Bonusly has boosted morale for our staff members who feel highlighted and recognized in a prompt and positive way every time the leadership or colleagues list a specific shout-out and tie it to a financial reward. It's been a very fun and positive activity for our staff to participate in - some staff use Bonusly throughout the month, but most make sure they give out rewards before their balance runs out at the end of the month. It's both fun to send the shout-outs and, of course, to receive them. Sometimes our work environment gets exhausting and this is a great way to infuse new energy.

Thank you for your feedback, Anja! It's wonderful to hear that Bonusly has boosted morale at Spring Initiative, and helped encourage recognition of everyone's hard work. I'm sorry to hear that the leaderboards were making your team uncomfortable, but I'm glad to hear that we were able to make the changes necessary to fix that!

Thank you for taking the time to work with our team in order to resolve that issue! If you have any further questions or concerns, please reach out to us at support@bonus.ly. We are happy to hear from you!

Pros: It's fun, engaging and keeps the team self-esteem way up high....that's a good thing right? We love how it notifies us when there's some sort of anniversary, people feel really appreciated.

It also creates an awareness of how many things are being done in the company, people who go the extra mile gets recognized.

Cons: I wish it could integrate the GIF option better with the Slack app. Other than that we loved it. Some people complained about "why should we give bonuses when all we are doing is what we got hired for" - but after a year of using it we noticed how there has been an attitude shift, it just makes a friendlier atmosphere.

Overall: Keep the team motivated

It's engaging

Creates an awareness of whats's being done as a team

Pros: - You can choose how to spend your points throughout the month, who to give them to and the amount.

- The US catalog of rewards is great, there are plenty of things for you to spend your points on, Gift cards from a multitude of places, cash out on Paypal or even donate to your charity of choice.

- It has very nice integrations with software that we use at the company and the UI is very intuitive.

- It's really great for company games and competitions.

I recommend using Bonusly 100% as a way to reward employees for hard work and rocking it!

Cons: - The international catalogs don't offer many choices.

There aren't any other cons that I have experienced, I like this product in general very much.

Pros: We wanted a way for employees to recognize the great work that their peers are doing without management always having to be involved. By giving everyone some 'money' to do that, it helps make sure that people feel appreciated and that they have a way to say thank you.

Cons: There are a few of the new features that I think should be included in the base software - especially for those of us who signed up early when there wasn't 2 tiers of product. I'm also really unhappy with the fact that they add rewards whenever they feel like and automatically turn them on instead of letting me control that. There are some causes like Planned Parenthood which can be controversial and I would like the opportunity to review rewards before they are published into our catalog.

Pros: Very easy to use, navigate and get to grips with. Brand new users instantly understand it and see the benefits of being an active user on the system. As an administrator, I see minimal user queries. Great customer service! Really quick and informative 'chat' feedback.

Cons: On the admin side, the report building is not the most intuitive and sometimes take several attempts to get the correct data exported.

Overall: Useful to see how colleagues (often in other unrelated departments) are working together. It brings people together.

Pros: It seems to work. People enjoy giving and receiving little micro-bonuses and even seeing other people get them. So that promotes some transparency on what everybody is doing and a general feeling of togetherness.

Cons: It does sideline a certain population who just don't enjoy being in the spotlight. These folks enjoy private exchanges. If there was a way to fine tune announcements for introverts that would address this problem. Not everybody wants to share everything.

Overall: People like it.

Pros: Bonus.ly offers us the ability to integrate into multiple platforms so we do not have just one way to present bonuses to one another. Plus the hash tags and gifs take micro-bonuses to the next level! Not only are you encouraging someone where everyone sees it, but you get to influence the culture

Cons: If I have to come up with something, it would be the integrations with Bonus.ly do not have all of the feature rich attributes that Bonus.ly has on their website portal.

Overall: Verbal encouragement is a strong motivator to make me want to do things for people. It also develops relationships.

Pros: I like that it integrates with Slack for ease of use, though some people find it hard to use the Slack function (for those who get it, it's awesome). I like how you can set hashtags for your core values and use it as a gauge for who best embodies our core values.

Cons: Can't really think of anything I don't like. I suppose it would be nice if we could approve Bonusly cash-ins because sometimes people do them all at once and as a small business this can mean occasional cash-flow challenges. I do like how when people cashed out their points to give to charity that Bonusly put in a heads-up feature so that we could prep for the temporary hike in cash going out of our account.

Overall: Team cohesion tool. Helps us identify top performers as rated by their peers in real time. Also shows us a lot about the people who work for us e.g. leadership skills within teams -- those who elevate and recognize others while thinking strategically. People think the product is fun and they like to cash out their Bonuslys for cards. The fact they could give to charity was very uplifting to the team and they enjoyed pooling their points for maximum impact: that is one of the best features so don't ever lose it. Nothing brings a team together like striving for an outside cause.

Our employees love Bonusly and it helps contribute to a positive work culture.

Hi Jessica, We're so glad to hear that you love using Bonusly - even with the added responsibility of being an admin! As a Sephora VIB myself, I can appreciate your request to add Sephora to the catalog in Canada! I've let our rewards team know that this is something you'd like to see. According to Sephora's website, you can use their e-gift cards at either their U.S. or Canadian locations. You could pop over to the U.S. catalog to purchase a Sephora card and it should work in Canada. Reach out to us at success@bonus.ly and we'll be happy to help you test it out!

Pros: This software you call Bonusly is easy to use and provides a real positive feedback loop for people I work next to every day, I like the chart showing who is receiving the most money and bonuses. This can help motivate people to do better. The feed back helps people feel appreciated. SOme people I don't see everyday I don't have the opportunity to thank in person. SO using the internet is a way to take care of them from a distance.

Cons: I find the interface a little clunky sometimes. The drop down menus need an arrow or some other visual que to remind me they are there. I forget what to do if I haven't used it in a while. Also the home page should have a blank space with "who derserves to be appreciated today?" text to click on as a start point to give bonusly money.

Overall: social appreciation has many benefits. The basis of Twitter, facebook and youtube are all the "likes". People want to be liked and this helps them know.

Pros: There are a wide range of rewards that can be earned, including "cash" (transfer balance to Paypal or Amazon account), gift certificates, charitable contributions, and custom company swag. That's fantastic. BUT, what I think this program has done best for us is that it's helped build a culture around saying "thank you" and acknowledging coworkers (360 degrees!) for the ways they make our lives better.

The monthly points expiration, which irked me at first, actually works as a reminder that positive acknowledgement should be part of your planned work, not something you only do rarely.

The ability to pair Giphy or fun images with bonuses keeps the interactions fun, silly, personal, and engaging - exactly the way it should be.

Integration with Slack means that praise is public (within our company), which prompts others to think about what they are also thankful for.

Cons: There's really not much I don't like about it, honestly. It's easy to use and straightforward in its interface.

Pros: I love the ability to mark bonuses with core values. this creates a constant overview of what our core values are and reinforces them.

Cons: When this software only charged when people redeemed a gift, that made sense. The cost has become a barrier, and we discuss every month whether we should get rid of it, and replace it with some manual system

Overall: reinforce core values, and have team encourage each other.

Pros: * ease of use

* seeing the interaction across all facets of the business

* being able to reward people who have assisted you in a meaningful way

* watching other staff 'piggy back' onto your recognition of others and support your enthusiasm for the work of the team

* encouraging interaction across the business

Cons: i would like to see more variation in the gifs please, as these are extremely popular with all staff

Overall: I have already recommended this software to a few organisations. All the benefits are already mentioned in the pros I listed earlier, so this is a useless question

Thank you for your feedback, Julie! We're so glad to hear that Bonusly is easy to use and encourages interaction across the business. I also like being able to interact and appreciate the coworkers that I work with but aren't in my department! I'll make sure to let our product team know that more gifs is preferred! They're one of my favorite aspects of Bonusly, and I completely agree that more is better. Thank you for recommending us to other companies! That's so wonderful!

Pros: How it allows people to reward each other for their good work or their demonstrations of our values as a company. I particularly love the ability to post giphys as well :D

Cons: When on desktop, I don't like to get the emojis screen prompting whenever I type ":" it's a bit slow. I'd probably just add an emoji library to pick from without it prompting, just as if you were typing from your phone.

Pros: Employees love it - we have a 95%+ usage rate among our employees, and everyone seems to love the sense of community it helps foster. We love Bonusly so much that we publish the stats in our blog, and we have a monthly contest to see who can get the most points, which then gives them the ability to donate to the charity of their choice.

Cons: Integration with Slack could use some work - the usernames in Slack don't match Bonusly names which can be confusing.

Overall: Employee happiness!

Thank you for your feedback! What a wonderfully high usage rate! It's amazing to hear how well Bonusly is working for your team!

Pros: It's a great way to recognize employees who go above and beyond- Employees then get to use the earned bonus' to shop at their favorite retailer- It really encourages employees to help each other, and even if they aren't doing it to gain bonusly, they are developing habits of being helpful in the workplace.

Cons: It would be awesome if we were able to do the donation bonus' in increments

Pros: I like that I can easily reward my team members for their hard work and collaboration, and I can do it using text, gifs, emojis, and give them tangible feedback that they can exchange for something they like! I also love how it integrates with Slack so I can add on to someone else's feedback.

Cons: There's really nothing to dislike about Bonusly, although sometimes I wish there were more reward options (although, there are already a ton), but wouldn't it be great to exchange points for Southwest gift cards ;) Really no complaints and I'm sure they'll come out with more reward options in the future.

Overall: Overall, Bonusly is a great platform for providing and receiving feedback. I love how well it integrates with our existing systems and how easy it is to use and exchange points for gift cards. Wouldn't have it any other way or use any other reward-based system!

Pros: I like the ease of use, the positive vibe it gives to our team, and how it helps us to really focus on the good that our team accomplishes.

Cons: As part of a really small business team, the likelihood of not being able to afford this software once it's necessary to pay for it, it's a shame that for small teams there isn't an option to continue on a free basis.

I really don't like how you can't easily comment back in the actual platform itself. It seems to think that you're trying to get points for yourself....strange.

Overall: It really helps us to focus on the positives within our team and where we're excelling. Great driving force behind building one another up.

Pros: It's easy to control posts as an Admin, and to request that staff include certain words, hashtags or values into their posts. User Admin is very easy with a few options :)

Cons: I would like to see more filters for Admin reports: filter 'common words' by a date range so I can go back to my staff over a period, same thing for bonuses given and received, rather than just 'past 90 days'.

Overall: Peer engagement across Canada and the USA - a great way for employees to give CHEER to their PEERS wherever they happen to be working that day. Staff receive the reward of their choice, rather than selected for them by management, which they find super valuable.

Pros: - dead simple to set up and use

- makes for happier employees

- great options for rewards

- lots of options for customization

Cons: I can't say I have anything to complain about. Our employees love it and I've never had any problems.

Overall: This provided an easy way to create/support our internal culture of recognizing individual contributions and rewarding each other. By setting up our own "currency", we are able to have a custom experience where our team members give each other what amounts to high-fives except they have the added benefit of being worth some amount. Every couple months almost everyone earns a gift card and they receive something tangible for being a good human in our organization.

It's fun and inexpensive... you should try it with your employees.

Cons: Bonusly tacks for additional features that I think could be wrapped into the monthly fee. I wish they integrated better with HRIS systems as well. We use Zenefits and it doesn't quite work the way we'd like it to, but they tried to fix it for us.

Overall: Improved company morale!

Pros: Transparent internal reward system. Very easy to use and a great motivator for our employees. With Bonusly, no one can be criticized about favoritism for bonuses because it is completely peer-to-peer. Also their Zapier Integration with the Bubble machine is hilariously fun.

Cons: I wish there was some sort of fraud detection algorithm included to be able to detect when employees are not using it as a peer-to-peer system, but instead as pure quid pro quo. That's not the intention of the system and at the moment Bonusly doesnt have any safeguards for that.

Pros: It is easy to use, enables you to attach gifs to be funny and it gives visibility so everyone can see, this could be improved as it is difficult to see if people are just swapping points

Cons: It can be too quick to run out of points. Some people do not remember and then give out points at the end of the month for silly reasons. Others do not get the concept and do not give points at all, believing that the salary is enough of an incentive to work hard.

We are constantly working to on expanding our rewards options, and I'll make sure to send your feedback on! Another great way to supplement your catalog is by adding custom rewards for the organizations you want to support.

I'm happy to say that you can send your gift cards as gifts to others! When you redeem, you have the option of sending the gift card as a gift, and all we need is the email address of the recipient.

Pros: It motivates our team to work together and give positive feedback to each other. And it also encourages the team to have positive interactions with each other. The love to give each other props. And they all look forward to saving up their points to buy gift cards with.

Cons: I don't have any "cons" to share. We haven't had any negative experiences with the software, so I can't offer any feedback for this section.

Overall: Motivates team members to work together. It focuses on the positive.

Pros: The ease of use, no hoops to jump through when giving a bonus, just simply put their name in, the amount, and everyone's happy

Cons: The fact that I can't give more bonuses! It's just fun to give, give, give, but I run out of allowance and have to wait until next month!

Thank you for your feedback, Stephen! We're so happy to hear that Bonusly is a simple and effective motivator for you and your team!

You're able to spend your points on a boost so you can keep on bonusing! You can read more about it here: http://help.bonus.ly/for-all-users/using-bonusly/the-allowance-boost-reward.

Cons: The smiley system could need a redo. It is slow and from time to time annoing when it pops of on every ":"

Pros: This application is fun. We use this in our office. You acknowledge your colleague by giving them points. and it is convertible to cash once your reach your set minimum points. This is fun, yet your earning. Excellent for encouraging the employees to do better job.

Cons: I have liked this application as showing appreciation for making a good job, so I guess there is negativity on this application. Its just that, our minimum points is hard to reach.

Pros: It allows for consistent recognition for our team members because all team members can reward people for their above and beyond contributions, not just management. The other feature that makes everyone happy is that they can choose rewards that they are interested in instead of us choosing something that will never be used.

Cons: The only feedback I have received from our management/leadership team is that they would like the ability to have more than the standard allotment of points per month. My understanding is that everyone receives the same amount unless you want to purchase additional points per month on an individual basis. It would be nice if management could be gifted more since they should be rewarding more individuals without having to increase everyone's allotted points/mo.

Hi Jen! Thank you so much for your feedback! We love to hear that consistent recognition is a priority for our users, and that the variety of rewards available is appreciated!

Pros: I love the slack integration . If not for that I honestly wouldn't use it. Its not that its not a great product but in a fast paced work environment I usually am working with whats in front of me, so I would never think to open BonusLy in a tab. Since its always right there in slack and you can see other people using it I won't ever forget its there.

Cons: I know this may be extreme but the slack integration could go even further. I try to use it on the fly but I am not sending these out everyday so I might forget the syntax. Also my team might have set it up this way, but if the # is not a registered one it rejects it. I would like to be able to see a more detailed message as to why it failed other then an example of what it should be.

Pros: The ability to reward employees instantaneously when they've gone above and beyond for our company is incredibly valuable. It is also customizable to feature your companies core values and we've utilized it in that way.

Pros: Bonusly has proven over the months that we've used it to be a wonderful booster of morale to our staff. I think people like knowing when they do something nice for someone else, that it is acknowledged and the other person is grateful and everyone gets to see that they did something nice for that person. I like that you can choose between many different places to use your money and that you can also choose to donate to a charity if you so desire.

Cons: About the only thing I don't like about Bonusly is that there is not an option to cash out without using PayPal. If there were a way for the Administrator to fund a "cash payout," it would be much easier to do so. The administrator could have a separate account with enough funds to cover any cash payouts. Most people will still use the other options, such as Starbucks or REI, but some people would rather just have the money to use as they like.

Pros: Giving points to reward staff members for a job well done. It's nice to see the staff reward one another for things that I might not even know that occurred during the day. It's a great toll for positive reinforcement.

Cons: I wish you could change the point increment to your own amount. Also when you forgot to add a person- that you could add them with the rest of the list and not after you selected a reason why you are giving the points. They look like an after thought

Pros: it's an easy to use software, implementation is simple and smooth, easy to integrate with Slack, good stats on engagement - you can see if there are people who constantly recognise same people, if there are "coalisions", if there are people who don't use the system at all.

Cons: the rewards pool is quite limited for countries outside of US or UK, but you can always add yours which would take a bit more of time and hussle but once done its smooth. cashing out is always simple though.

Pros: I love that Bonus.ly is very simple to use for my employees. I don't have to do extensive training session for them to undertand. I love all the little perks that got adfded within the last years (gif, team bonuses, etc.). Bonuses are also very visible and due to this we were able to stop having employees competitionness.

Cons: Honestly there is nothing that I can say I don't love about this software. I am a very huge fan of Bonus.ly and would recommend it!

Our team is approximately 50 people and we use Bonusly every day!

Pros: It's a great tool for timely recognition that should never be underestimated. Our favorite part is funny gifs, Bonusly is our little social media wall thanks to them! It makes the process fun and motivates others to review all the rewards and be up to date with others' achievements.

Cons: I would suggest to add Notes space to custom rewards so employees can mention for example what day they are requesting for time off. Sometimes it gets difficult to track.

Overall: Time recognition, employees engagement, custom rewards specific to our needs

Thank you for your review. We really appreciate hearing how Bonusly facilitates timely recognition at your company! And, we're huge fans of the gifs around our office, too. I love your idea about adding a way to include notes to the administrator when redeeming a custom reward. I'll be sure to share this with our product team!

A great way to make people feel good, at a low cost for leadership.

Pros: I love the immediate feedback. Employees love it because it's so much fun to use. Reading all the great things my team is doing keeps me in the loop when I'm not there to see it! It has helped us become more united and create a culture of encouragement and positivity. As a business with two locations and an ever-growing team this tool brings us together.

Cons: I wish the automatic acknowledgments such as birthdays and anniversaries had a lower price point. The cost adds up and we've stuck to managing those special days internally.

Overall: Improved culture. Empowered employees. With Bonus.ly we have a year-round staff reward program that is more powerful and fulfilling to the team than a once a year bonus that is often forgotten the other 364 days of the year.

Innovative and interactive!

Pros: I like that you can give Bonuses to collages for doing good work, that you can add on to other Bonuses and of course that the points transfer into actual money.

Cons: The Slack integration command to give a Bonus is a bit tricky to remember how to do at first, I've noticed that a lot of people have trouble with it but don't realize that their Bonus wasn't actually recorded.

Overall: Free money!

Cons: I would like to have the possibility to give all remaining amount of bonusly to a group of people and the tool should calculate automatically how much each one gets. I'm not sure if this is possible already. However I didn't find a way to do it.

Thank you for your review, Kelly! We appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts about Bonusly! We're so glad to hear that Bonusly is super easy to use, and encourages peer-to-peer recognition.

I'm sorry to hear that the hashtags feel cheesy: hashtags help pinpoint why an action is valuable to the company, which helps positively reinforce shared goals and company values. Great news though; it's possible to change the hashtag requirement. here are the instructions to adjust your hashtag mode to make hashtags optional: http://help.bonus.ly/for-admins/basic-settings/setting-your-hashtag-mode.

We are constantly adding new rewards to our catalog, and we send out email announcements to admins for new rewards. I'll suggest to the product team that we extend these emails to non-admins as well.

Please contact us at support@bonus.ly if you have any questions or additional feedback! We look forward to hearing from you, and thank you for being a Bonusly. customer!

Allows our team to reward each other for a job well done. Easy to use and learn.

Pros: Allows for visibility into people's anniversaries and birthdays while also providing a mechanism that is visible to everyone in the company for giving kudos.

Cons: in the field for my last name, I put Murdock and I'm a Jr so I put Jr. in there too. Now when I get notified or a popup comes up to chat with me...it says "Hello Jr." and I'm not sure how to fix it. :)

Overall: The ability to reward folks for going the extra mile, or helping out in the office. Also ability to see birthdays and anniversaries.

Thank you for your feedback, Dennis! We're so happy to hear that Bonusly is easy to use and helping you recognize excellence in the office. I love the birthdays and anniversary features! I want to be able to show my appreciation to my coworkers on their special days, so I'm right there with you! I would be to take a look into your name being changed to Jr for you! Would you mind contacting us at support@bonus.ly about it? We look forward to hearing from you, and thank you for being a Bonusly customer!

Bonusly is incredibly easy to use and has a very clean look.

Pros: It's ease of use is probably the best feature. It's very intuitive and not at all difficult to learn, which is nice. Some other reward systems are not that way. But it's also nice that it encourages interaction between employees and managers.

Cons: They don't have as many physical rewards as some other companies, but there are MANY more gift card options and I also like that you can donate to charities. So, it's really a wash to me. You trade off one thing for another.

Overall: Main benefits are ease of use, encouragement of employee interaction, and many different options for employees to cash out on their rewards. I am extremely satisfied with this software. Would highly recommend.

Thank you for your feedback, Sarah! We're so happy to hear that Bonusly is encouraging interaction between employees and managers; that's important! I agree with you; the clean look of Bonusly is one of my favorite things about it!

We've been tossing around the idea of offering physical gifts, and we'd love to hear the kinds of things you'd like to see in the catalog. If you have a spare moment, please let us know at success@bonus.ly! Thank you for being a Bonusly customer!

Used it both at my current company and previous job to reward colleagues

Pros: Able to receive and give recognition for doing a great job, extra incentives on top of regular pay that are very motivating.

Cons: Honestly, nothing so far. The only con I have had was more our settings. At my current org, it takes a lot of bonusly to be worth anything, but that is something set up on our end. So maybe having realistic cash-out minimums so it is worth using.

Overall: Able to get extra incentives for my good work and reward teammates for helping me.
