Recognise and Reward performance using Kudos bot
Marico leverages Workplace to amplify communication and collaboration amongst its business and functional units. With a multi-generational workforce, almost 50% of which are millennials, they felt a need to leverage innovative technology and tools to recognise, reward, and engage their members.
They integrated their social rewards and recognition program “Maricognize” with Workplace by using Workplace partner Kwench’s Kudos Bot. Their employees can now give top-down and peer-to-peer recognition publicly and globally using this chat bot. They can attach e-cards and mention which values they’re recognising the colleague for. The recognition workflows and reward budgets are configurable. A post gets made on the pre-defined Workplace group for every such recognition which allows others to congratulate the receiver. People can also redeem their reward points online through this bot!
The Maricognize bot was launched in February 2018 and got used more than 800 times within the first week, making it an instant hit!
- Significantly increased employee motivation levels across the organisation
