Pros
I love that the platform is focused on peer to peer recognition; the first thing you see when you log in is your recognitions wall and you can recognize your peers so easily.
I really like how easy it is to train people to use this software, and it's a great tool for promoting goodwill across our organization.
It's a really great program, that is easy to use. It's easy to set up your profile and its visually, very appealing.
Cons
I am missing the possibility of search my team order by alphabetical order, for example.
Some reports show info that' slightly confusing (% of team recognised shows a person "filling up" as i recall, never quite got this one.
Some selection drop down counter intuitive ( hard to locate staff names when adding the hiring manager unless using surname first or exact spelling etc).

Affordable, customizable web-based tool to support employee engagement

Reviewed 4 years ago

We were able to quickly launch a customized program without investing internal IT resources into developing the solution.

Pros

This low-cost, web-based employee recognition program is intuitive and easy to navigate both for end users and program administrators. Easily compliments a robust employee recognition strategy by offering leaders, managers, and staff an additional venue for sharing and receiving recognition. Recognition is linked to specific behaviors that demonstrate and exemplify company values and service...

Cons

This software can help sustain an organizational culture but isn't a comprehensive solution to employee recognition. Organizations that don't have other recognition tactics already in place or launched alongside this program risk disengaging employees. Recognition efforts still need to be reflective of the full range of staff needs but this program certainly helps meet the need for a public venue to recognize and connect staff across an international organization with a large geographic footprint.

Vendor response

Thanks for taking the time to leave this great review, Dawn. Enabling organizations to launch a recognition and rewards program that fits their objectives is key to us - and without the need for extensive additional development time or onboarding support. If employees would like some extra help in navigating Workstars, we have just launched a suite of explainer videos which they can access at any time, including on how to set up their profiles, send their first recognitions and pick the perks they'd like to receive!

An easy-to-use and affordable platform

Reviewed a year ago

Workstars is wonderful. Onboarding was a breeze. The only issue I've encountered is the time zone difference between us and their team, so customer service is not always easily accessible.

Pros

I love that the platform is focused on peer to peer recognition; the first thing you see when you log in is your recognitions wall and you can recognize your peers so easily.

Cons

I wish there were more notifications or summaries; maybe notify users when someone in their department gets recognized, or send out a weekly summary with some recognitions from that week.

Vendor response

Thanks for your great review, Kevin! Glad you like the focus on peer-to-peer recognition too and being able to quickly see all the activity in your organization. You'll be glad to know that we now have a US support covering all time zones.

Great tool!

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

Its really very easy and fast to use. Just look for the one you want to recognize + choose the topic + write some words + submit! You do not need to spend many minutes to recognize your team members.

Cons

I am missing the possibility of search my team order by alphabetical order, for example. I would like also having optional the comments once you recognize someone (50 characters is not too much to fill, I know, but sometimes its not needed to dedicate some words to that one) Finally I am missing additional rewards, I have 5 or 10 but additional amounts as 20 or 25 should be considered. Maybe an option to write the amount manually would be nice to have.

Vendor response

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review, Cristina! You can search team members alphabetically by their surnames already as well as searching for their name directly. Your program admin will be able to create new reward values too :)!

Everyday is a Bonus Day with Workstars

Reviewed 2 months ago

Overall I love Workstars and every week I like giving rewards to all my friends who helped me in my work and more than that love to receive rewards in return. It's an amazing tool and every company must use it to engage their employees more in work that could reward with small gifts other than salary.

Pros

Worstars provides a great engagement to employees with its micro bonus points which can be converted into amazing rewards. I love the way we can recognize colleagues' efforts with it and reward them for the same.

Cons

It would be great if we can do more analysis on Workstars as it captures lot of details regarding employee work and achievements if companies use this data more efficiently it would be helpful in various decision marking processes.

Great Product!

Reviewed 3 years ago

Workstars has given Onyx employees a fun and interactive platform to celebrate our colleagues’ success, and that has been invaluable to our work culture. Implementation could not have gone any smoother. The support team is always timely, friendly and helpful. Workstars is a great tool for the HR professional’s arsenal.

Pros

Very easy to set up, use and maintain; Our employees love being able to give peer to peer recognition to each other.

Cons

The only suggestion would be the search function is based on last name. Being an international organization, many of our employees have multiple last names, so it can be difficult to find someone. I would like to see an option to put in any part of the name and search that way.

Vendor response

Thanks for your great review, Becky. We love to hear that employees are enjoying giving recognition to their peers and the positive impact that's having on work cultures. We also love feedback. We have just launched our new recognition search tool which makes it easier than ever to find a colleague you'd like to recognize. The search tool will automatically display colleagues who you recognize most...
