Breakdown of core features
Organizations can create a culture of appreciation where core values and exceptional moments and behaviors are positively reinforced. These are accessible through Reward Gateway’s online platform or mobile device, where all employees can access from any location or job function. Recognition and reward options can include any combination of values and greetings e-cards, instant awards, nominations, and automated awards. In addition, the online platform can be tailored to include custom-designed tiles, editable blogs and communication tools, quick links to additional systems and platforms, and multimedia resources.
The Connect+ app works as an extension of your platform, so good news, announcements and information, and moments of recognition travel wherever employees do.
Single Sign-On (SSO) makes it simple. Reward Gateway supports SAML 2.0 and has existing integrations with multiple providers, ensuring employees can easily and safely access the platform.
The platform can include leaderboards to highlight top senders and receivers of recognition. Reward Gateway recommends best practice strategic recognition, which does not focus on gamification. Their approach is that recognition and reward should be genuine and meaningful. ‘Gaming’ the system to encourage repetition of behavior does not positively reinforce the values and behaviors you would like to see repeated in the organization. Instead, they focus on an authentic and engaging platform and communication strategy with videos and photos that connect to your people, mission, and values.
