Give a WOW QUICKSTART promises to offer small businesses an online option for peer-to-peer recognition that can be set up and launched in a matter of minutes
Terryberry, a global provider of employee recognition programs and employee awards based in Grand Rapids, Mich., announced a major new release of their Give a WOW Quickstart online program for peer-to-peer employee recognition. The company cites upgrades for enhanced usability, and employee engagement, along with faster setup and program launch.
Give a WOW Quickstart is Terryberry’s online peer-to-peer recognition solution designed for small businesses and workgroups. Upgrades to the program in the newest release include custom employer branding, customized nomination categories, and a faster setup.
“An HR Manager or Team Leader can go to Giveawow.com today, and completely set up a custom branded Give a WOW Quickstart program. Their employees can be logged on and giving recognition in a matter of minutes,” says Terryberry’s Managing Partner Mike Byam. “Give a WOW Quickstart makes employee recognition simpler and more accessible than ever.”
The Give a WOW Quickstart program uses a social media style interface. A unique program URL is generated in the setup process. Participants access their group’s Recognition Feed, which displays praise from co-workers, updated in real-time.
“One of the things that so unique about the Give a WOW program is that when an employee posts recognition for a peer on the online wall, the recognition is specifically linked to one of the group’s core values,” says Byam. “This really helps leaders reinforce their mission, vision and values in a powerful way.”
“Not only that, but the personal comments that coworkers type on the recognition wall creates a storyboard of the great successes that are happening in the business on a daily basis,” Byam continues.
The Give a WOW Quickstart program uses non-tangible, written praise and recognition. Terryberry points out that Give a WOW Quickstart can be incorporated with Terryberry’s other awards and recognition programs.
The announcement follows recent news of the growth of Terryberry’s 360 Recognition Platform, a robust total Recognition and Rewards platform that caters larger employers.
Terryberry has 100+ customers using their Give a WOW and 360 Recognition Platforms and the programs and have been used to create over a half million recognition moments annually.
“Latest surveys say that over 40% of U.S. employers have a peer-to-peer recognition program in place today. We’re really proud to be able to offer the marketplace an affordable tool for small businesses to use to provide meaningful employee recognition in a sustainable way. Give a WOW Quickstart does just that,” says Byam.
