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

Luckily, since it is so new, the product teams are very responsive to requests for features.

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.

Motivosity not only motivates, but builds a synergistic culture across the entire organization

2016-09-01

It allows for employees to quickly publicly (and privately if needed) recognize one another.

Pros

Simple, easy to use.

Cons

Initially we had some API issues (wanted to generate a Motivosity account automatically has employees were onboarded), but those were quickly resolved.

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.

Micro-recognition that works

2018-03-12

Pros

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

Cons

I wish this were integrated into a primary HR platform (like BambooHR) for consistency in reporting and a single view into the health of the business.

Syncing Data with SyncHR

2016-09-01

To keep this information updated, I implemented a sync with Boomi software that would pick up information from SyncHR and update Motivosity in real time. This way employees can see who belongs to which department without having to go through the HR department for questions.

Pros

Being able to encourage other employees of their hard work when they don't realize that they had indirectly helped me out.

Cons

Surveys.

Easy and fun to use

2017-04-19

The fact that we can actually give money rather than some sort of "points" with little to zero value in real life is for us a great motivator.

Pros

Ease of use, nice and easy interface, good rewards.

Cons

"like" updates on posts or comments are often wrong, often showing that I liked my on post when I did not.

Motivosity is the game changer we've been searching for! It's already had an extraordinary impact.

2018-02-16

Positive culture shift, more connection between departments and locations, recognition that employees deserve, laughter, good vibes and feelings, and overall pride as a company that comes together to help one another.

Pros

I love how visually pleasing and user-friendly it is. The reporting side of things provides a lot of helpful information to us so that we know who is utilizing it and what things we may be able to do to encourage even more usage.

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.
