Cameron stated that with Oracle Celebrate, organizations could now utilize a comprehensive and unified employee experience platform. She explained that this platform aligned recognition with company values to nurture a culture of appreciation and acknowledgment. Furthermore, she emphasized that it encouraged more impactful peer-to-peer interactions. Cameron highlighted that these newly introduced capabilities simplified employee recognition, made it meaningful and inclusive, and empowered HR and business leaders to give precedence to employee appreciation. She added that it also served to enhance engagement and motivation within the workforce.

Key features of Oracle Celebrate include:

Peer-to-peer recognition: This feature enables employees and leaders to acknowledge their colleagues across the organization in real time, with personalized recognition linked to business values. It seamlessly incorporates peer recognition into an employee's daily routine and work processes.

Generative AI assistant: Employees can enhance peer-to-peer recognition by receiving suggested improvements for their submissions, facilitating the creation of more impactful recognition notes for peers.

Recognition insights dashboard: Managers can access detailed insights about the recognition patterns within their teams, highlight individuals who may require additional support, and identify top contributors.

Nomination and event-based awards: This feature permits employees to recognize their peers for significant events such as promotions and work anniversaries, as well as nominations made by managers and peers, such as the ‘Employee of the Month’. These recognitions are initiated by updates to employee profiles in Oracle Cloud HCM.

Real-time recognition and engagement data: Organizations can continually update and monitor recognition programs with precise data, enabling administrators to measure their effectiveness and correlate recognition efforts with business outcomes.

Redeemable points: Employees can accumulate points when recognized by team members, which can later be exchanged for rewards integrated into the system by the organization.

Recognition-based social feed: Employers can create a real-time stream of organization-wide and team-wide awards and accolades, promoting camaraderie and increasing visibility for daily accomplishments.

Zachary Chertok, the research manager for employee experience at IDC, mentioned that the applications and value of recognition are expanding and evolving as organizations rethink how they connect into and uplevel employee success. He also noted that building an ecosystem for recognition assists in sourcing the roots of achievement, moving the needle on best practices as success occurs, stimulating cultural acceptance around process innovation, and fostering belonging through community acknowledgement and appreciation.

Ushaan Abeywickrema, the director of human resources at MAS Capital, noted that many organizations find it challenging to establish a straightforward system for ensuring that employees receive the praise and recognition they deserve. He pointed out that this represents a significant gap in the HR software market, especially considering the well-known importance of fostering a strong sense of value and accomplishment to enhance employee engagement and workforce efficiency.

Abeywickrema also conveyed excitement about Oracle Celebrate and its potential to introduce innovative capabilities that could revolutionize how they personalize the employee journey. He expressed hope that Oracle Celebrate would make it easier to acknowledge the dedication and hard work of their team members, all while reinforcing their commitment to their organizational culture and productivity. He believed that by recognizing their contributions, their employees would feel more seen, supported, and empowered to perform at their best and deliver their finest work.
