Workhuman | September 25, 2023
Workhuman, a renowned company at the forefront of transforming how employees engage, connect, and show appreciation in the workplace, has taken a significant step in enhancing its market-leading Social Recognition platform by introducing the all-new Workhuman app for Microsoft Teams. This innovative application is now readily available for download in the Microsoft Teams app store, providing employees within organizations complete access to the features offered by Workhuman's robust recognition platform, all within the Microsoft Teams environment where employees conduct their daily work, meetings, collaborations, and communication. Leveraging the cutting-edge capabilities of the Microsoft Teams platform, this new application empowers Workhuman to offer its clients an effective means to elevate awareness and real-time participation in their employee recognition initiatives.
Building upon the initial Teams integration by Workhuman, which already supports users launching the recognition nomination process within Teams chats and Teams channels, the new app brings forth a host of features:
A native welcome page that facilitates immediate recognition and showcases an 'always on' awards feed, along with a highlight reel of years-of-service awards and celebrations, all without necessitating employee logins to a company intranet.
Award notifications within the Teams Activity tab, along with the ability to extend kudos and congratulations to colleagues across the organization who are receiving recognition or commemorating significant life and work milestones, thereby fostering a more unified company culture.
The capacity to deliver 'in-the-moment' recognition within Teams chats, channels, or even during meetings (through a Microsoft Teams meeting extension), accessible across mobile, desktop, and web versions of Teams.
Employee visibility into their own recognition points balance, serving as a reminder of the recognition they have received from their peers, coupled with one-click access to the Workhuman Store for perusing and redeeming points for merchandise, gift cards, charitable donations, or experiences.
Teams administrators are granted centralized permission and deployment controls for the application within the organization's Microsoft Teams environment, offering granular settings and robust security options.
Research conducted jointly by Workhuman and Gallup has delved into the profound impact of recognition on business outcomes. A key finding reveals that only one in four employees in Gallup's global database strongly agree that they have received recognition or praise for their outstanding work in the past week. However, the study also underscores the potential benefits of doubling this figure, leading to a remarkable 9% boost in productivity and $91,989,474 in increased employee productivity. Furthermore, additional research demonstrates that when employees are acknowledged for life events and work-related milestones, they are three times more likely to strongly agree that they feel connected to the organizational culture.
The Workhuman app for Microsoft Teams harnesses the full potential of an enterprise's human resources and employee experience strategy, delivering it to an engaged audience to stimulate enhanced employee engagement, connection, retention, and productivity on a large scale. The introduction of the Workhuman app for Microsoft Teams represents the next stride in Workhuman's journey to bring the power of its entire platform to the digital employee experience provided by Microsoft 365, encompassing Microsoft Teams, Outlook, Viva, SharePoint, and more.
