Nothing short of an exceptional experience! Our team is in loving with having Kudos.

More customizing options for the pages feature, but not really a con. I've found a work around by creating custom graphics with my preferred images and fonts and uploading. Very easy to read on mobile phones which is so nice! This has become our company "go to" for resources such as our benefit program overview.

Pros

The program is incredibly user friendly and availability on all platforms: computer, mobile, Gmail build in, and more. We have employees with language barriers that can use the program with ease! The program has connected our company and solidified our core values of team. With hotels spread out our province, all the teams can come together to recognize, share best practices, and celebrate success. It has also helped me get to know our team and helps our ownership group stay involved with day to day news. One of the customer rep, from the beginning, has been incredibly helpful and efficient. Kudos Support help answer any questions I have so quickly and properly. Not to mention, I have given multiple improvement requests which have come through shortly after! Kudos truly cares and we feel valued... most importantly, our team feels valued having this incredible tool to recognize and communicate with each other. I would not hesitate to recommend Kudos to any other organization.

Kudos Use at Arch

I like the program and Kudos is easy to use. The ability to give someone a Kudos or just a message of thanks for a job well-done is important. A lot of times we get busy and can't always communicate directly so this platform lets us stay in touch.

Pros

I like the ease of moving around and finding what I need. It's easy to use, find the employee, grant the recognition and even select emoji's or pictures to make it fun.

Cons

The difference between Award and Recognition seems to confuse everyone, including myself. Award to me means someone is receiving something and Recognition means sending a message of thanks or something similar. These seem to be backwards to me but over time I've figured it out.

Good employee recognition app

I use it often, I always like to give someone good feedback using kudos, easy to use software with well designed UI.

Pros

It's good software where I can rate positively my teammates, it's good for monthly feedbacks for coworkers. It's a good base to give a well rated worker a salary rise.

Cons

It's not needed for most companies, only for companies who values coworkers opinions

KUDOS Review

I like saying something positive to my colleagues that all can see. It clearly goes noticed and appreciated without the sometimes, awkward feelings from face to face interactions of the same nature.

Pros

I like being able to recognize my peers and have that recoginition displayed to all so that everyone can see what I am conveying about that particular employee. Management can see what is being done while they aren't in the environment which will positively affect the employee in reviews and on day-to-day basis.

Cons

I would like to be able to see more reward points for recognition if a certain level is reached or quantity of recognition is given out instead of just awards offered by management. Even if needed approval from the leadership is required it would motivate people to use the program more, in my opinion.

Easy Tracking & Rewarding

Pros

It’s super easy to use and fun. You can notice someone’s actions and share immediately. Plus the points get turned into things you may really want from retailers.

Cons

We have had a few issues with surveys but that’s not a huge reason we use it.
