    Pros
    We used to have thank you cards at our previous work place, Kudos platform is an easy to use online version of the same. It encourages users to appreciate the efforts of fellow teammates.

    Kudos is a great way to connect with your team and make people feel appreciated. I love the GIF integration.

    I love being able to gift Kudos every month to someone on my team who helps me. It's great to be able to say thank you to my coworkers with some substance.

    I dislike how it shelters kids from some real-world problems that they should know about, not the very bad and innapropriate stuff, just some things.

    Not all staff have been created on the platform. There seems to be an exclusion to the contract staff.

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

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    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....

    Great for Employee Engagement

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    Very positive. I'm very confident that this tool will help us build a more positive culture and a new way to put focus on employee recognition.

    Pros

    It's structured like a social feed and very easy to use. Minimal training required and implementation and customization was very simple. Powerful tool for increasing employee engagement and building a culture of recognition.

    Cons

    I wish it supported GIF files and had a way to set up points activities that users could claim, but other than that it's great!

    Recognition made easy

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    I love it, I use it everyday and recommend its use to everyone irrespective of your job level.

    Pros

    The structure and ease of use has allowed me to very easily recognize my peers , leaders and staff. The integrated dashboards also creates competitiveness which makes it even more fun.

    Cons

    The software needs to have some build in moderation to identify "fake" recognition's. An exceptional category gets selected with the contents saying thank you.

    Kudos - KPI with a (Positive) Difference

    Reviewed 3 months ago

    Overall, integrating Kudos into our HR and KPI environment has been a breeze. Rating employee satisfaction is often as important as customer feedback - Kudos knows this, so their entire ecosystem has been built on that principle. We have seen a tremendous improvement in our workplace, with far fewer complaints being lodged, and far more compliments being shared. Competition in the workplace has also been maintained without neglecting performance.

    Pros

    Overviewing employee satisfaction AND performance in one dashboard is an absolute gift, both for myself and my contemporaries in C-suite as well as HR. We have not deployed Kudos on a managerial level, and feel it performs more than adequately within upper management and HR. From my experience, there is no solution currently on the market that facilitates such positivity in the work environment without compromising it's use as a KPI-tracking and HR intermediary.

    Cons

    Kudos could use more thorough integration with other KPI and HR solutions, but offers a competent standalone environment to make up for the lack of integration.

    An easy and FUN way to say thank you

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    Overall experience has been great, as mentioned above it is an easy and quick way to show someone that they matter as a part of your team. Actions speak louder than words, and by giving some kudos to someone who is doing great in their position, it is the just the icing on top of the thank you that you already gave them!

    Pros

    I love Kudos because it is that extra little something to tell a coworker thank you or that you appreciate them! I love being able to award team members for their work and then they can turn around and use those Kudos to buy themselves something special. Kudos is a creative way to give back to those people who help you or make your work day better! I love giving and receiving KUDOS! :)

    Cons

    I have had no issues when using this software
