Pros

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 great way to connect with your team and make people feel appreciated. I love the GIF integration.
Kudos is a simple yet effective way to boost morale and connect with coworkers, two things that are especially important in these unprecedented times.

Pros

Great app where you can recognize Your fellow co workers in a fast and easy way. Love it a great wat to keep your team motivated.
The Employee rewarding and the variety of merchants are incredible. Also, I love the integration with Microsoft Teams as this allows seamless communication amongst employees that are recognised.
In my first weeks at the new company, I've received a Guusto gift card for Uber Eats and I loved how easy it was to navigate the platform and enjoy the gift.

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.

Cons

No more lost cards in the mail. No more postage paid to mail out a gift card.
I really cannot think of any aspect of this software that was negative.
I was slightly confused by the combine gifts function - I wasn't sure what was combined and what was not (first time I used that function).

Love getting Guusto BUCKS!

Reviewed 2 years ago

It is a fun way to receive kudos from Boss on performances, and fun to save up for bigger gift cards.

Pros

This is an easy to use rewards program, nice assortment of gift cards available and easy tracking of what rewards we have received

Cons

Might be nice if when used, it automatically went to the used tab. Not a problem, just a thought

Amazing, great platform, super easy to use would recommend to any size of business!

Pros

I love the seamless kudos process of recognizing and promoting my teammates while also reinforcing the company ethos set out by our management team.

Cons

Nothing really, super easy to use, you can even build in charitable contributions for rewards!

Vendor response

Quick Easy and Effective

Reviewed a year ago

I like this product for the simplicity of the platform, it is very intuitive. The ability to reward instantly is fantastic. I can attach a Kudos or message along with the Gift Card to personalize it for each person.

Pros

I like the ability to reward instantly. Often times you have to go out of the office and purchase the reward. This allows you to do it as soon as you see it.

Cons

I have to change my currency everytime, it doesn't remember.

Great tool!

Reviewed 2 months ago

The process was straightforward to me as a first time user. Receiving the gift is as simple as just a few clicks and no hassles. The options and menus on the website are easy to follow. I can see this software take off in a corporate setting as a practical employee recognition tool/Kudos board.

Pros

I've never heard of Guusto until I was sent a gift card as a client appreciation. I received a simple email from Guusto inviting me to claim the gift. The website was easy to navigate although a login account has to be created. I get to choose my gift card from a large selection of shops/retailers. There were no additional fees, advertisements or extraneous information throughout the process.

Cons

Quick video-based training will have to be developed in order for corporates to use this tool to its full potential. I have only attested the most common used functions and yet to learn the full capabilities designed in this software.
