  • It's cool to see the stories and examples that accompany the recognition between co-workers. Nectar is easy to use, and it's also a nice little motivator to earn yourself a little reward.Teresa S.Read the full review
  • Super easy to work with Nectar team to setup and implement their service. Employees love the customized swag and rewards that they can get.Van G.Read the full review
Cons
  • It's a bit confusing how the point system works (which points stay, which expire). The caveat is that I missed the kick-off meeting, so that may be user error.Suneal R.Read the full review
  • The fact that points expire at the end of the month has forced some on our team to quickly dump their points to other individuals before they lose them.Chase H.Read the full review

Super Easy and Intuitive

My organization us using Nectar as a peer recognition program. It has REALLY simplified the recognition process and I believe will greatly increase the expression of peer appreciation overall. It also provides a tangible token of that appreciation for each individual being recognized which has not always been the case with other programs we have used.

Pros
The Nectar software is super easy to use. It is very intuitive, all pertinent info is visible, accessible and understandable. The available rewards offer something for everyone and give each person the opportunity to cash their points in for something that is most valuable to them taking the pressure off of the person expressing appreciation or the organization.

Cons
It is not possible to see the dollar value of a reward until you have banked enough points to qualify for that reward. This makes it difficult to know if you want to continue to bank points so you can qualify for the higher point value reward or just spend your reward points right away.

Allowing employees to recognize each other in a meaningful and easy to use way!

Pros
The product is a great platform to recognize co-workers and employees. It is easy to use and it's a great way for employees to encourage recognition of their peers!

Cons
Don't display the number of points awarded - it could create the opposite effect of employees thinking what they are being recognized for is of less value than others.

Very good, again it's any easy platform to use and adds value and appreciation to co-workers and employees.

Pros
I like the idea of Nectar and being able to recognize my co-workers for their hard work and accomplishments. The platform is very easy to use and does not require a lot of time to get familiar with the set up.

Cons
I would like to be able to sort or select groups or specific people to follow or a search tool that allows me to see what someone is rewarding a specific person for without having to scroll through the historical post's.

So far it seems like a good program to reward coworkers for going above and beyond.

Pros
I can put value towards telling a coworker good job. And I can reward points when my client wants to shout out a coworker as well.

Cons
Took a minute to figure out how to give the points. But afterwards it was easy.

So far it has been fun, and I'm excited to see if it impacts our company culture.

Pros
We require team members to give out a certain amount of nectar points every month. It's nice to have a way to help recognize people on ANY team in the company, and it's nice to have a free way to regularly give a gift to our team members.

Cons
When you assign nectar points to someone, are you not able to add a note as well? I was only able to add a hashtag of one of our company's core values.

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.

Immediate uptick in communication amongst employees; Nectar makes recognition very quick and easy, and that has improved morale and cross-departmental effectiveness; Also like how recognition can be easily linked to company's values via hashtags.

Cons
I was not part of the implementation or integration teams, so I cannot speak to those aspects of the product. From a user perspective, no "cons" come to mind, however I have only been using Nectar for a few weeks.

User-friendly way to recognize others

Used monthly for less than 6 months

Review Source: Capterra

We have been searching for over a year for a new recognition program/software, and this really does it all for us. It not only provides the platform to recognize people, but also the rewards behind it with the giftcards.

Pros
This is a very quick, user-friendly way to recognize members of your organization without it being a burdensome process. I like the hashtag options to associate the recognition with one of our company's core values as well.

Cons
Not really a NectarHR issue, but I wish it was more visible to our company. Unless you log into NectarHR, you're not seeing what people are being recognized for, which is part of the point. I think as a company we need to see if we can live-stream this on our employee-facing monitors around the office building, put it on our company's Intranet site, etc.

Response from Nectar


Hi Amy! Thanks for the feedback and we are glad you are enjoying it. We have built out the capability to show the recognition feed in your intranet. We will reach out to your administrator to see if we can get that implemented.

Given that I was originally charged with coming up with an Employee Recognition Platform for our company, I feel I have a real understanding of the competition out there. Hands down this is the easiest platform and greatest value! The team is very responsive to questions.

Pros
I love how easy and intuitive the program is.

Cons
Not all employees have signed up yet. I know you give an incentive to sign-up, but apparently at our company more is needed. With that said, it has only been introduced to the company as a whole one time. Maybe additional communication with employees? Just a thought....

Pros
The design, user friendliness and creativity is very impressive. Our company highly values our employees and this platform produces an easy pipeline for showing them our appreciation with 'hard cash' (aka giftcards) to places they really enjoy. This platform disrupts employee perks and allows employees to have a say in what type of perks they prefer.

Cons
We've been using this platform the last few months and we haven't run into any major flaws-the Nectar team is more than accommodating and available for our questions. Being a tech company, we are really excited for the upcoming slack integration that will make my team more likely to use it on a regular basis!

Pros
Nectar is easy to use and convenient. It is a great way to recognize colleagues and share company values. We had previously utilized a paper ballot system to give a kudos or a shout out to a fellow employee which was often tedious and people were not recognized in real time. Nectar takes out all of the work and hassle and keeps praise top of mind.

Cons
We have not utilized Nectar for a long amount of time as a company so we have not yet run into any issues thus far.

Review Source: Capterra

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.

Review Source: Capterra

I have found my department and team to be in better spirits and more enthusiastic to volunteer and exceed expectations than in the past. I have had a good experience overall with Nectar. I know my coworkers and I are eager to work hard and do their best to get recognition over Nectar. I am excited to continue to use this to see a more long term affects like good work habits built over time or a higher volume of volunteers for difficult or more experienced tasks.

Pros
I found integrating this product into our department and business a very easy transition - my department understood and loving giving and receiving points immediately. I thought that the motivation and morale boost it brought with was very beneficial to keep up a high standard of work and collaboration. I found it very helpful to know why my coworkers were giving away points and the hashtag feature allows for that very easily. It is a fun way to better unify across departments. In the past - there was no simple way to thank others in different departments across our several office locations in the US. Now we can say thank you with the click of a button.

Cons
Although I have only used it for a few months, I haven't found anything inherently negative about this software or its use. One thing I don't like about the software is the limited amount of points I and my coworkers are allowed to give. I know it is probably just a difference in cost to up the amount of points employees are given each month but I always find my coworkers saying they wish they had more or they have given away all their points before the end of the month. I also found that when I am trying to find a shoutout on my feed (to say thank you or like it) and I click on the post in the notifications section - it does not appear. It takes me to the general feed and I don't find it a good use of time to scroll through hundreds of posts to find the one I was looking for. A more direct route for that would be helpful so I can convey appreciation for others being kind.
