    I can't imagine a scenario where it is less appropriate than any other 360 tool. It's easy to use, customizable, and inexpensive. Reports are easy to interpret. Great tool for anyone looking to implement a new 360.

    Kudos is especially useful and helpful during project deployment where team members can be awarded kudos and appreciation and motivation for their team efforts in meeting milestones and targets. In some instances, the reward types or gifts may seem irrelevant to some departments in certain regions or my company' operations in other parts of the African continent.

    Pros

    EchoSpan 360-Degree Feedback Tool

    • EchoSpan was extremely supportive in the initial training portion and is extremely quick to offer support when required.
    • Filled our request for customization and were easy to work with.
    • Excellent on-line training videos
    Michelle Martfeld | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Kudos®

    • One of the most useful aspects of this tool is that it allows you to save the profile of each of the employees individually and to be able to track their activities and give them the recognition they deserve.
    • Another useful feature of "kudos is that the system allows you to assign badges to each profile based on their job performance.
    • I also really like that the platform has a dedicated portal for employees. In which they can see their badges, recognitions and awards obtained for their efforts.

    Cons

    EchoSpan 360-Degree Feedback Tool

    • EchoSpan's 360s are completely customizable, so content improvements are up to the user
    Ben Dattner | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Kudos®

    • Rewards take a long time to be given out, but this I would put on the company's policy.
    • From my own perspective on a mobile phone, it's not so smooth like on desktop, like searching for a colleagues name sometimes is difficult.
    • Sometimes email notifications take too long to come, or they don't even come at all.

    I used to work at a company called Sparc that developed its own in-house platform called Teamphoria. It was great software that coupled a lot of the same features as workday but also with a recognition system. Essentially it allocated certain types of recognition levels per month, 1 platinum, 5 gold, 20 silvers, where each was worth a drawing ticket. At the end of the month, someone would be drawn from that pool based on their received recognition and then receive a gift card. However, some abused this system and devalued its purpose and inflated the meaning behind it. Kudos seems to do a good job by having a direct point/monetization system which isn't up for random chance. This can help even incentivize employees to go above and beyond, getting them to work harder since they are receiving recognition for it.

    • Incentivizes employee to work harder.
    • Helps with thanking our employees for jobs well done without having just a normal "Thank You."
    • Allows the employees to use kudos for company SWAG or items they may need in their lives and it's all possible to get thanks to KUDOS.
