About Applauz

and all the wonderful, hard-working people behind it!

Our mission is to connect people

At the heart of Applauz is not just another piece of (ahem, award-winning) software, but the people who make it happen and the reason why we exist — gratitude.

Through applying the best practices of employee engagement, our product evolves continuously to support human connections. When we combine the right people, skills, and passions, we start to see great things happen!

Spreading the power of gratitude

We believe appreciation is the glue that holds people together, and kindness is contagious. That's why Applauz is committed to helping organizations grow gratitude, kindness, and appreciation within their cultures. It's not about bits and bytes but about what connects us as professionals and as human beings.

"It's not about how to push employees to be more productive, it's about how to make employees want to be more productive."

Our Culture & Values

Our use of the terms "culture and values" is not merely marketing jargon. It was our intention from the beginning to set the foundation for a strong culture. Applauz's core values were among the first official documents we wrote when we first launched the platform in 2018.

As a company, we operate according to these core values. A set of ten guidelines. Whether by the name of "values" or another, the purpose and intention remain the same.
