Kudos

When a colleague shows a "Get it Done" attitude where he/she identifies problems and/or risks and then proactively taking action to resolve or escalate them without waiting for someone else to notice them I give them a kudos. When a teammate shows best practice through experience and research, one’s ability to willingly share with others, the trends and knowledge that reflect the leading practices in a particular subject I give them a kudos. When a colleague demonstrates efficiency in improving speed, achieving savings, or simplifying processes or systems for the business I give them a kudos. When one conducts themselves to ensure that the company maintains a reputation for corporate integrity, sound professional principles, and values that promote the company's mission I give them a kudos.

Small Improvements

I'm honestly not sure why my company chose to use Small Improvements. We used Lattice before for the all the same use cases I mentioned here. The employee performance review feature might be a bit better in Small Improvements, but the goal-setting tool and the 1:1 tool are very weak. I may not have benefitted yet from all the features that Small Improvements have to offer, but so far it looks like a pretty basic HR tool with much better alternatives out there. If it's cheaper than the competition, that might be the only argument to go with it.

Cons

Kudos

  • I think Kudos could use some UI enhancements as it can be a bit much info at one time
  • I believe Kudos could probably do a better job guiding administrators in setting up their organization kudos page/system to maximize its appearance and layout

Small Improvements

  • Interface can be cluttered at times
  • There isn't a lot of help or knowledge readily available when first using the tool

I never had to contact their support so far. There's no "N/A" option so I'm going with a neutral "5".

Alternatives Considered

Kudos

It is the best reward and recognition program I have come across so far as a team member and leader who is focused on successful completion of projects and being goal oriented. It gives one a chance to publicly reward a team/member. Such motivation spurs healthy competition and growth among members.

Small Improvements

Small Improvements is less capable compared to the competing platforms I have used due it slow and outdated looking UI, feature set, and ease of use

Return on Investment

  • Invests in the employee, who in turn invests with the company.
  • Distributes rewards fairly and helps track progression within the company.
  • Allows for others to see what others are doing when they are doing it well, thus it inspires greatness.

  • I can't really comment on this aspect of Small Improvements, but it does help centralize this process, so that should save us time
