Kazoo overview

What is Kazoo?

Kazoo is a cloud-based employee engagement and HR solution formed by the merger of HighGround and YouEarnedIt. Kazoo betters both the employee and manager experience by connecting and aligning organizations through employee-driven goals, continuous check-in conversations, peer-to-peer feedback, social recognition and pulse surveys.

Kazoo’s intuitive technology can be tailored to match organizations’ employee engagement goals, providing workforce insights that are essential to understanding organizational health and driving a positive company culture. With Kazoo, customers like Patagonia, Echo Global Logistics and Allianz have inspired employees to reach their full potential, increasing retention, productivity, customer satisfaction, and ultimately drive bottom line results.

Unlike traditional HR systems built for sole purpose of administration, Kazoo engages and inspires the modern employee. By turning annual, ineffective processes such as performance reviews, surveys and service awards into a real-time dialog, Kazoo’s employee engagement platform empowers companies to create continuous feedback with their workforces.

One of the best programs to motivate and reward team members!

The pros definitely outweigh the cons. Some people may take advantage of the system, but that goes for anything. It's better to focus on the positive side of things and reward those who definitely deserves it!

Pros
This was definitely a first of it's kind. I love how YouEarnedIt provided a platform to motivate and reward team members. The prizes were awesome, but I'd say the best part is the recognition that is actually announced to the entire company. It made me feel really good when someone gave me a shoutout over the YouEarnedIt platform! Kudos to this company for creating something like this!

Cons
The only downside to YouEarnedIt would be an internal one. I noticed some of my colleagues would give each other points just for the hell of it, or because the points were about to expire by the end of the month.

Pros
It is nice to have a performance management and a rewards and recognition system all in one platform. The Outlook plugin is nice too.

Cons
It would be nice to have some additional export functionality and some more flexibility. It is a pretty modern platform but still pretty narrowly focused into their way of doing things.

It’s been a lot of fun! Great way to shout out positive remarks to colleagues as well as have fitness tracked. A lot of fun!!!

Pros
I have used another similar program at a previous job that wasn’t as user friendly. I love the set up of Kazoo and the access to so many great rewards!!

Cons
Haven’t found anything yet I dislike. Still getting used to it and learning to find my way around but so far so good.

Kazoo Amazing Recognition Tool + More

Used daily for less than 6 months
Reviewed 2019-12-27
Review Source: Capterra

I have no complaints regarding Kazoo in the first two quarters of using it. It's an amazing employee recognition tool, easy to use, similar to other social platforms so easy to pick up. It also has some fun analytics for team members/managers to use. Team members love to get recognized on Kazoo. We recently started using it as a goal system as well, which we used to replace Reflektive (which had frequent employee complaints). It's really multi-use and easy to spend a few minutes a day recognizing colleagues for hard work.

Pros
Kazoo is so easy to use. Our company uses it to quickly recognize great work across individuals and teams, as well as to give points for good 'behaviors' such as working out, volunteering on the weekend, filling out company-wide surveys, etc. Each employee gets a certain # of points to give out per quarter, and you can give your points to anyone. You can quickly recognize team members on their birthdays and work anniversaries with points, and employees can use points to purchase gifts.

Cons
I haven't found anything I didn't like about Kazoo so far, but the caveat being I've only been using it for about 5 months so far.
