    If your employees already use Slack as their main communication tool, integrating Applauz into your Slack workspace will allow them to stay updated on what's happening on Applauz without ever leaving Slack.

    The Applauz Slack app allows employees to:

    • Be notified in a Slack channel of choice of any new posts, recognitions, or Polls posted on the Applauz Newsfeed.
    • Give a peer recognition in Slack.
    • Answer weekly Pulse Survey questions directly in Slack.

    The Applauz Slack app will keep your employees connected and engaged with each other through Slack without having to switch platforms.

    If you don’t already use Slack, all you have to do is create an account.

    What we'll cover:
