Nectar overview

What is Nectar?

Nectar HR is an employee recognition and rewards platform designed to help small to medium sized businesses manage social recognition, rewards, and swag. Features include pre-built engagement surveys, real-time insights, eNPS surveys, a 2-way anonymous messenger, engagement scoring, usage reports, and more.

With Nectar, employees and managers can publicly reward each other using real-time peer recognition based on core values. Employees can share and celebrate team and individual successes using micro-bonuses and gift reward points that can be redeemed for gift cards or swag.

Nectar's pre-built engagement surveys capture real-time insights to pinpoint strengths, weakness, blindspots, and opportunities for change. Data and analytics are generated on team participation within the platform including shout-outs, points given, likes, and comments. Companies can attach company values to all in-platform communications to increase visibility, reinforce company culture, and link dispersed teams.

The software has provided us with a digital process for recognizing and rewarding team members, both from a manager level and and peer level.

Pros
Ease of use, robust functionality, cost, flexibility and excellent support. My team loves the ability to publicly recognize and reward other team members.

Cons
I actually haven't found a lot of negatives with the software. And the few times I have, the team at Nectar has been quick to resolve the concern and even, on several occasions, update the software to incorporate my suggested improvements.

Nectar has been wonderful and I am excited to use this on a daily basis. Sometimes a "thank you" just isn't enough and this is a way to award points for employees to use to purchase gift cards and who doesn't like a gift card? It makes everyone feel more appreciated and more valued at their jobs and it also makes the employees want to work hard to achieve these points. The best thing is it's so simple and doesn't take time out of an already busy day to do.

Pros
This software has been wonderful. I have been with this company for 15 years and this is the BEST award program we have ever had. It's such an easy way to recognize co workers who have gone above and beyond their normal job. It's so simple and takes literally a few minutes to award points to a fellow team member. Our old system was more cumbersome and many people wouldn't bother taking the time. Immediately I noticed people who didn't use the old system are using this one.

Cons
The only thing I don't like is that each person needs to sign up individually and I notice that some co workers don't want to take that tiny effort to do so. I want to award points to a few individuals but if they haven't signed up I can't do that. Not really a problem with software exactly but it's the only thing I don't like.

Pros
Nectar HR encourages and provides us with an easy way to recognize our various team members for their accomplishments, whether it be something big - like finishing a project ahead of schedule - or small - like reviewing a PowerPoint before a presentation. We use Nectar constantly, and being able to see all of the recognition and shout outs that our team members get - especially across disparate departments - gives us all more visibility into the good that is being done constantly, and, more than anything else we've implemented, is helping to build and foster a positive culture of familiarity and friendliness throughout the company

Cons
This is pretty trivial, but I can't use more than one '+' in a single statement.

I've been pleasantly surprised of how easy Nectar has been. In the past I'd have to go through a lengthy process to get budget approved and funds released, just to go buy something tangible to have on hand to give out to the team. Nectar has allowed me to simplify that process and assign the reward to my rep and then they can go apply those rewards to a plethora of options.

Pros
Nectar makes it easy to incentivize your team while giving them plenty of options to choose from.

Cons
To date, I haven't had any issues with the product or Nectar team.
