Workhuman, the employee recognition software provider, launched updated integrations with Microsoft Teams, the collaboration app for hybrid and remote work.
This integration allows employees to use the Workhuman Cloud and Social Recognition tools directly from Teams, without having to disrupt their normal workflow. Activities enabled by the integrations include making employee recognition nominations, receiving award notifications and reviewing award social feeds.Recognition software provider @Workhuman launched integrations that allow employees to use recognition tools directly from @Microsoft Teams. #HR #HRTech Click To Tweet
Employees are able to nominate either users they’re chatting with or all members of their team directly while they’re within Teams, Workhuman said. The idea here is to eliminate the need to go through administrative processes and create quick moments of recognition.
Workhuman also said that the integrations’ goal is to ensure that recognition remains easy and seamless “no matter what tools employees are using.”
The updated integrations with Microsoft Teams join a list of other connections the software provider has built with workplace productivity solutions such as Microsoft Outlook, Slack and Yammer.
A Culture of Recognition
According to a recent study by Workhuman and Gallup, 77% of the employees who feel they receive the right amount of recognition strongly agree they feel loyal to their organization. That’s three times higher than those who don’t receive the right amount of recognition, the study said.
Workhuman said it believes that the integration with Microsoft Teams “puts social recognition in the ‘ecosystem’ where employees work and creates a culture that supports recognition and belonging.”
“The integration with Microsoft Teams injects human connection into everyday tools employees are using to stay connected with their coworkers, especially during remote work,” explained Chris Campbell, senior vice president of product at Workhuman.
In May, Workhuman updated its Workhuman Certified program to help organizations distinguish themselves by becoming a “human-centered workplace.” The eight fundamental tenets of that include purpose-driven work, appreciation, work-life harmony, a culture of belonging, opportunities for growth, fair pay, safety, environmental and social stewardship.
