    Pros
    Kudo's is a fantastic tool for our employees and will be a 100 in my book once we can establish a secure API to automate our employee data sync.
    Love that you can recognize hard work and show appreciation to others. Depending on your company you can redeem for awesome rewards.
    Kudos is a simple yet effective way to boost morale and connect with coworkers, two things that are especially important in these unprecedented times.
    Cons
    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.
    There is nothing I have to say bad I can say about this program.
    Not all staff have been created on the platform. There seems to be an exclusion to the contract staff.

    Kudos for Kudos!

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    Kudos really helps to build team morale. I love seeing everyone call each other out for the great work their doing, and I think that kind of feedback makes people work harder. Sometimes teams can be a very segmented. With kudos, you can easily see what other teams are working on, fostering an atmosphere of engagement and communication.

    Pros

    Your hard work turns into cold, hard, cash! I like that you can choose from kudos-branded or company-branded rewards! I like that you can choose to send your kudos privately or publicly. I like that you can endorse a kudos someone else has sent. I like that you get kudos on your birthday! I like that you can't send all your kudos to one person, forcing you to spread it out.

    Cons

    I wish unused kudos could roll over to the next month. I wish adding giphs to a post was easier. I wish that clicking the +K button actually added additional kudos. I wish there were more Canadian-specific Kudos rewards. I would like to get a reminder email towards the end of each month, reminding me to use up the last of my kudos.

    It is an excellent platform to boost the morale of your employees and give them the recognition that they deserve.

    It is a great tool to encourage, motivate, and appreciate your employees. Very easy to use and its reward section is also very useful. It is also mobile-friendly.

    Cons

    Monthly limit of the points can be improved. More options can be added to redeem points.

    Kudus encourages me

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    Naturally, every human beings need for some sort of encouragement in life carrier. One of the best software which motivate us beyond extra miles, I've ever seen is Kudos. My specific experience; I got an exceptional vote from our CEO for attending a hard meeting with governor while all telecom operators were switched off due to security situation. As a result of my long discussion with governor, MTN was the first operator which restored and I was motivated by our CEO.

    Pros

    It is well designed in 4 categories with clear explanations and easy use

    Cons

    To be frank nothing is least likely in this software

    Wonderful Application

    Reviewed 6 months ago

    I'm very happy with Kudos. We originally had a paper form of recognizing our co-workers, and it was hard keeping up with pages that had torn or ripped out. Going to an electronic form of recognition was such a great decision. I like logging on and being able to see birthdays and anniversaries of my co-workers. I hope we continue to use Kudos in the long run.

    Pros

    I like the options that are given to recognize our peers, as far as what we can choose after we write our comments. I think those "compliments" really help our comments stand out, sort of like a hashtag.

    Cons

    What I least like about Kudos is the value of what each comment is worth. I feel like employees that go above and beyond should receive much more than what is given now. I also wish we had more gift card options.

    Kudos to Kudos!

    Reviewed 6 months ago

    I have really appreciated the ability to look up who is on what team across my organization as well. When managing clients it's nice to feel like I know everyone and can work with them no matter how far apart we are.

    Pros

    I love that I can connect with my peers and coworkers and thank them for their help whether they are on my immediate team or on a team across the country. I can recognize the work central to my role or thank them for help with the side projects I use. It is an easy way to build community in a virtual environment.

    Cons

    I believe this is specific to my organization but I wish we could redeem Kudos points for real prized like giftcards, items, etc. However, a kind word is always nice.
