Amazing experience! We love using Bonusly for our team and seeing peer and peer shout-outs and employee recognition. It's been a fun way to celebrate our teams at all levels company-wide, especially during the remote environment with COVID.
  • Great platform design - easy to navigate and fun to use
  • Great job connecting teams to communicate and celebrate hard work
  • Aces it on employee recognition and peer to peer feedback
  • N/A - I think bonusly does great for what it is
Bonusly is great for employee engagement and peer-to-peer recognition. It's a nice way to celebrate team wins, hard work, collaboration, and build a fun culture. Our team always adds fun GIFs and it's nice to see this across departments, levels, and people coming together on their own to celebrate hard work/recognition. They also give points [that] can be cashed in for gift cards. Bonusly is not as well suited for feedback in terms of improvement more recognition and celebration privately and publically.
  • Employee Recognition
  • Celebrating Hard Work
  • Rewarding teams with points and gift cards
  • Has absolutely improved engagement across our global teams
  • helped up continue to build a great culture
  • puts people and celebrating team work first in a fun and interactive platform
the cost was [the] main factor for us. I think the platforms are very similar. Bonusly is one focused on just employee recognition which is great and concise. BlueBoard offers a lot more by way of experiences and gift-giving for recognition but on the pricier side.

We utilize Bonusly across all departments of our organization. We have clinicians that work in various locations, so Bonusly gives us all a way to stay connected, and share successes, and helps all staff to gain a better understanding and share appreciation even in areas of the organization that they may not have regular exposure to.
  • Fosters a culture of appreciation for one another
  • Allows for each staff to select reinforcers of meaning to them specifically
  • Can help tomato sure celebratory dates aren’t forgotten (birthdays, work anniversaries)
  • Increases employee engagement
  • Connects distance employees and employees who don’t have a department team around them to remain engaged and connected to others
  • Allows for specific hashtags that can be tied into company values, to reiterate core values of the organization.
  • Tying GIFs to employee "shout outs" is a popular feature in our culture. Any expansion of the GIF library would be put to good use.
Bonusly can be a game changer for fostering a culture of appreciation and engagement amongst staff. It speaks especially well to the younger generation, but even our more senior staff seem to love it to. I could see it being a little more difficult to use in industries in which technology use was not part of the day to day work, as you do need to either pull the app up or look at your email to know if someone sent you Bonusly points and recognition. In any office setting, education, healthcare, technology, or other industry though that includes an email or computer component, Bonusly ties seamlessly into the day and I have yet to find a place that has implemented it who hasn’t loved it.
  • The ability for peers to give one another bonuses and shout outs gives people at all levels the ability to get involved in rewarding one another
  • Birthday reminders
  • Looking through GIFs that people tie into recognition posts are so much fun and really keep people engaged with the platform.
  • For the majority of months over the past year months, over 95% of our active employees receive Bonusly points from at least one coworker each month, increasing the opportunities to feel appreciated for the hard work they do.
  • More than 50% of Bonusly points and appreciation that are given by one employee are "added onto" by another employee, showing that the staff really do read through the great things others are doing and thus prompt one another to celebrate as well.
I haven’t found any other platform that I would consider in a similar product to Bonusly. When we got involved with the platform, it was the only one of it’s type and we’ve been blown away with it since then.

Bonusly is that intuitive recognition and reward system we use to acknowledge and reward achievements, efforts, contributions of managers, co-workers, and teammates. The rewards can be in-form of bonuses, branded items, gift cards, vouchers, time-offs, opportunities, and other types of rewards. This makes employees feel valued and perform their jobs excellently.
  • Makes rewarding employees simple and impactful.
  • Integrates with collaboration communication and other HR tools.
  • Adding of unique custom rewards.
  • The presentation of rewards on the dashboard should have access restrictions to limit people from seeing totals of amounts awarded.
Bonusly allows the company to come up with different ways of rewarding employees and materialize them while applying creativity to the whole process of rewarding the employees. These reward programs can be tailored to the needs, personalities, and preferences of the employees to ensure we deliver more meaningful rewards. What I like most is how we creatively generate company-branded rewards.
  • Personalized bonus feeds.
  • Great analytics and reporting.
  • Automated awards.
  • Employees put forth extra effort and take on additional responsibility.
  • More creative ideas from employees to improve business processes and solve problems.
  • Kudos
Bonusly builds a recognition-rich culture like no other reward and recognition software by empowering everyone to recognize their peers, direct reports, and managers. With nifty features and a simple interface, Bonusly is fun and intuitive to use and employees tend to adopt quickly and use it frequently. It is definitely a game-changer.

We leverage Bonusly as an employee-to-employee recognition platform. Anyone in the organization has a monthly pool of points which translates to real money/gifts. The product helps re-enforce our values as employees are encouraged to 'bonus' each other for perceived events. And everything is handled inside the app with VERY little administrative/HR overhead needed.
  • Prize selection, a wide variety of gift card, charity, and even PayPal cash payout options.
  • Prize reclamation/flow of money in, and points out. Most other systems are not nearly as hands-free as this. People are able to claim everything with zero approval/foot-work from your HR/Admin team. No prize book to maintain, no trips to the gas station to buy gift cards. It's just smooth.
  • Freedom to post however/whatever you like in the open-ended timeline/social media-esk posting feature.
  • Moderation. The freedom to post anything for recognition can get out of hand depending on your tolerance/company culture. There are very little to no tools around better this.
  • Bonusly has not done much in the way of adding features. Hard to call it a con but other similar platforms have extended into allowing more directed involvement from the organization. In other words: Bonusly is a little TOO hands-off in some ways.
Hands down this tool nails what it sets out to do. If what you need is a no-fuss method of allowing employees to build each other up that is a completely self-reliant system that only requires your predictable capital investment: there is no better. There are more feature-rich tools so there are plenty of cases where it may make sense to opt for a more robust system. I think small and large teams benefit the most from a platform like this. Small teams where every minute of admin time is precious. Or big teams where complexity can become an issue, or said large teams that are looking for a supplemental system to their current bonus/employee recognition programs.
  • Employees are encouraged to "live the values" as other members see and recognize their achievements monetarily.
  • This spreads a load of recognition from just leadership/managers across the entire organization, potentially eliminating/reducing a recurring existing task your company is currently doing.
  • Features/freedom of posting in a 'social media' style environment encourages light-hearted comradery between employees.
The "big name" to me has always been CrewHu. Not sure why they aren't in the listing at the time of this writing but they are far and away the big name from my perspective. This is the main other tool we've seriously considered and I think it highlights the opposite points I've made in the rest of this review. It is much larger in scope involving allowing your clients to participate, among many other smaller tools/features that Bonusly does not have. Conversely, it's a beast; the tool needs regular attention and engagement to leverage fully and make the investment cost worthwhile.

Bonusly shines through as the simple and straightforward option on the market. There may come a time where we want more and change tools entierly to better fit new business needs. But I can see Bonusly benefiting just about any team, where other tools really require certain scenerios.

We use it across the company to recognize the hard work of our colleagues and the small things that often go unnoticed in the hustle and bustle of day to day work.
  • Visibility for the entire company into bonuses given/received.
  • Meaningful rewards that make people actually want to use the platform.
  • Took me awhile to find where all of my previous bonuses were housed.
Especially at a busy company where everyone has high goals/metrics and the company is large and/or spread out, Bonusly gives everyone a way to recognize the unsung heroes. These are often the little things that make companies and individuals successful and give employees much needed boosts in outlook and help to make them feel valued.
  • Gives employees increased sense of value.
  • Fun way to reward people for going above and beyond.
I never had any issues with support. It's especially nice to be able to add location-specific rewards.
