Awarding Recognition Badges

published: July 11, 2019

Badges act as recognition medals. When you recognize an employee for a job well done, you can also choose to award them with a badge representing their achievement — award badges to celebrate birthdays, work anniversaries, employee dedication, or any valuable company contribution.

Recognition Badges are free and help motivate your workforce in a fun and engaging way.

Using Badges is a great way to step up your recognition efforts. Recognition Badges can support your employee engagement efforts by displaying visual “thank yous” that your employees can collect to remember their individual achievements.

The Recognition Badges are divided into three thematic categories, namely “Celebrations,” “Good Work,” and “Values.” These types of Recognition Badges help you illustrate precisely what you’re grateful for.
