Simpplr's Recognition is a peer-to-peer recognition system that lets any user select from a set of recognition awards to give to one or more users. The awards are set up and managed by Recognition managers. The Recognition managers for each organization can create and edit awards to match the needs of their own recognition programs. They also have access to raw recognition activity and a dashboard of recognition analytics to measure and adjust the success of their program goals.

Department and location

Finally, recognition Managers can explore which departments and locations are giving and receiving the most or least (>=1) awards.


Give recognition

Back to top

Recognition can be given in any feed or on a user's profile. Once configured, all users will see a new Recognition option when creating a feed post. When this option is selected, the user will be prompted to select one or more colleagues to recognize, grant an award, and write a post to go with the award.


Once posted, the post will notify users and appear in the feed just like any other post.


Profile badges

Back to top

Once a user is recognized, an award badge will appear on their profile. A new section for recognition badges will appear just below a user's About info showing awards they've been granted. From this section, the user can also be recognized and it will be posted to the home feed.


Clicking on the award badge will open a detailed view of the user's awards, and allow the viewer to click to find the original post in the feed with all likes and comments.
