The new social media recognition platform from TharpeRobbins enables participants to engage with their peers while still keeping information private.
The new corporate social media experience, with a familiar newsfeed, offers the ability to celebrate others and ‘like’ when someone is recognized and is proprietary to TharpeRobbins, a global leader in managed employee rewards and recognition.
“Our new social experience platform focuses attention on the award recipient with a customized experience,” says Neal Cao, TharpeRobbins’ chief information officer. “For example, participants can use an avatar from a preselected group of images to represent themselves online. In addition, users can also choose a preferred language for their website experience. “
Social sharing may spotlight a variety of select areas including, but not limited to, core values, strategic initiatives, celebrating milestones, volunteer service and acting responsibly. Individuals can also set up their own personal Recognition Wall to display awards they receive all in one place.
The platform includes advanced capabilities that support all types of programs such as points, level-based and eCards all within one platform.
“At TharpeRobbins, we have the most robust capabilities within the industry today to customize programs based on client needs,” says Cao. “For example, using original algorithms, we can track every single point and know who it came from, when it was given, and the program where it originated.”
The social recognition platform also offers a timeline reminder module that can be configured to communicate birthdays, anniversaries and other events throughout the organization. The timeline view can filter events by location or by teams based on the individual logged in. Users have the ability to quickly send eCards to celebrate the events displayed in the timeline.
“It’s a win-win for everyone,” says Cao. “Through our continuous client partnership our technology platform is constantly evolving to incorporate the latest social media innovations and trends.”
