Our Employees Have Really Enjoyed Motivosity

2016-07-24

We were looking for a way to reward our employees for their exceptional work and express appreciation for going above and beyond.

Pros

The online store is pretty great as well with the feature to purchase gift cards or local customizable prizes.

Cons

We had a few difficulties with Tango Card and it didn't seem like there was great communication between them and Motivosity. The issues were corrected though and now everything seems to be working great.

Great Product!

2018-09-13

A lot of our employees are separated by space and time (sales reps being out in the field all week, warehouse crew working at night, etc.), which makes it hard to make people feel like they are all part of one big team instead of in individual departmental silos.

Pros

Very userfriendly, and available anytime/anywhere through the mobile app. Love that it has a built-in engagement survey, also really appreciate all the available reports.

Cons

There is nothing I can think of that I would like to change about this software.

For our company this has made an outstanding impact on peer to peer reviews

2018-06-18

Increased appreciations from peers and a way to let everyone know how those that are behind the scenes are making an impact.

Pros

The engagement from our employees has been outstanding and the user interface makes it really easy to teach.

Cons

Lack of custom reporting and the reports always coming up from the previous quarter.

Motivosity Platform Review

2019-09-24

Motivosity allows for consistent, real time visibility and recognition of great work happening across the organization with easy reporting options and ability for the HR and leadership team to comply with IRS rules regarding gifts and understand how recognition is impacting the company culture.

Pros

Motivosity makes employee recognition a breeze particularly for teams and offices across multiple locations allowing for real time visibility of the great work happening around the organization.

Cons

However, my frustration is I can't pick and choice what I want active and have found there are places were I am using a different system or process which becomes duplicative with Motivosity's, confusing employees and managers on where to follow the process diminishing both processes/systems.

Motivosity for the Win

2019-09-12

Being able to see how employees are living up to our values has been very beneficial to the leaders and each employee.

Pros

For the general user, it is extremely simple to recognize coworkers. It is a smooth process to recognize multiple individuals at once, which has been very helpful. The layout is simple, which adds to the ease of use.

Cons

We have had issues with termed employees and being able to redeem the money for them.

A+ Program

2019-04-19

Keeping open communication between everyone sometimes gets lost but this program makes it easy to keep in touch and up to date with whatever is going on without the need of a phone call

Pros

This is a great way to communicate with employees both privately and publicly to acknowledge and reward jobs well done.

Can’t think of any cons for this program

Motivosity - An Indispensable Tool for Next-Gen Culture

2016-07-21

Once Motivosity got going it was self-perpetuating.

Pros

We typically have one administrator look things over about once a week, and tools like mass importing and exporting of users and API integration options keep everything up to date.

Cons

Since Motivosity is relatively new as a product, there are some features that would be nice to have, but aren't available yet. Luckily, since it is so new, the product teams are very responsive to requests for features.

Modern Solution to a Modern Problem

2019-09-26

Pros

I like that this platform allows us to connect in meaningful ways with a large company where our offices are spread throughout the world. It's nice to share feedback with those I supervise as well as colleagues I interact with less frequently.

Cons

The program is still gaining features for use with reporting and tracking for various needs such as employee reviews.

2020-01-22

We direct employees to sign on to recognize milestones (birthdays and anniversaries).

Pros

Ease of use, and reports of use. Employees love seeing their "shout outs" where everyone can see them.

Cons

Inability to load pictures on posts, which would be more engaging for viewers.

Great package for your team

2018-08-13

For me, the praise is enough and my team shall benefit from the end of the year somehow, the reports are clear, the interface is great and it prompts in an engaging way.

Pros

Although a relatively small amount vs other ways of praising a job well done, it does appear to get the employees talking, praising and recognising their peers, mgrs and sub ordinates in a very motivating way

Cons

As with anything, loopholes are found quickly and certain people will masked it worth their while! A more extensive UK gift range would be good also.

Pros

I love the ability for all employees, from any level of the organization, to recognize the work of others using the Motivosity platform.

Gratitude simplified!

2017-04-20

Additionally, we've used Motivosity to create fun games within our institution, with March Madness, we implemented a bracket system with departments that recognized and encouraged our people to complete their profiles, look at other people's profiles, to read the notes sent and to send recognition to other folks.

Pros

Allows for 360 degrees of recognition, meaning that not only leaders recognizing reports, but peers recognizing peers, reports recognizing leadership.

Cons

When filling out the profile, it would be nice to have the system have a pop up window or highlight the areas in red that were not filled in correctly vs. just freezing and not allowing the user to complete.

We created a game within Motivosity for March Madness. It would be nice if Motivosity would create games or other ways to keep users engaged through different months. The concern is how to keep employees motivated to continue Motivosity after the initial ramp up...with monthly games or additional content, we could continue to promote internally.

Motivosity makes appreciating people part of the job

2019-01-29

Pros

Motivosity takes the concept of appreciating and being appreciated from something many organizations don't seem to value to something that is clearly desired from employees. That feels good on many levels.

I am often unable to access Motivosity via the mobile application.

Recgnition and Rewards

2019-09-27

I have Motivosity set to come up as a start up option in my browser so I see it every day when I come in. I check it daily and I'm reminded to think of the good things that have happened during the day because it's always open in my browser. I feel like it has helped my individual team to catch others doing great things and give appreciation to their teammates. Appreciation is always a motivator in my opinion, especially when it comes from a peer.

Pros

Motivosity has made a difference in the department I work in by spotlighting daily accomplishments of over 100 employees. Prior to having the software in place I don't think we were doing this regularly or consistently.

Cons

I appreciate the immediate follow up, e-mail notifications and the monthly reporting options in the software.

Better rapport with our employees and an easy/safe way to offer incentives.

Pros

Motivosity is a very versatile platform that provides all employees with the ability to thank and recognize those around them.

For instance, one morning all our management team's accounts had been drained, but no purchases had been made.

Overall their features are great and user friendly, some parts need to be updated.

2018-07-25

great insight and reporting

Pros

The software uses dollars instead of points like other recognition programs, making it more transparent and the ability to customize items in the store is convenient.

Cons

I do wish the live feed would refresh automatically. I understand why it doesn't but it would be nice to consistently see updated news instead of having to refresh it. I would really love to see the option to create our own survey for just our company to streamline everything into one program.

Thanks for your review of Motivosity. To your comment, "I would really love to see the option to create our own survey for just our company to streamline everything into one program," as a company you can replace the standard six survey questions with custom questions if you choose to. Our client success team can help you set it up. Thank you for your business!
