Our Why

Employees, and not just managers, need the emotional highs from giving recognition. Peer to peer recognition provides the motivational opportunities that reduce stress, increase happiness and connect us to our work.

Our Mission

To change how employee recognition works, and tangibly improve the wellbeing and happiness of every employee.

Our Story

After years of research, industry involvement and personal experience, we noticed that employee recognition was under-valued, and made little sense. Employees were starved of recognition, and limited in how they could express their own thoughts, and emotions. Managers were poor, with the act of recognition being at best a rare transaction. Whilst the reward industry focussed on one thing, selling more reward. Knowing this we made the investment and commitment to change how employee recognition works. We believed employee recognition was a matter of perspective, that the benefits of peer to peer recognition were un-tapped in the workplace, and that there was more to reward than a gift card. We still do, that is why we made recognition social.
