"Fun bonus system"

What do you like best?

I really enjoy that it has gift cards for most of the retailers I am interested in. There are cards for lots of different retailers, restaurants, etc. and some are e-gift cards, like Amazon, for example, so you can use the reward instantly.

What do you dislike?

I would like to see more flexibility in the amounts you can redeem for gift cards, sometimes they will only have a couple denominations available, so you might end up with four $25 cards instead of one $100 gift card, which is a little annoying when you are actually going to go purchase something with the reward. Shipping is a little slow to receive physical cards, in the age of two-day prime shipping, it feels slow to wait a week to receive the cards.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Fun way to give little bonuses to workers - it feels a little more special to pick out a card to treat yourself than just receiving an extra few dollars in the paycheck.

We are using Globoforce system as a part of out Reward and recognition program. We have named it as "Applause" internally and access has been granted to all people manager and above. Globoforce system has been widely accepted by all user across various geographies.

It can be easily configured to meet your organisation requirement. You can setup multiple types of rewards. It also allows you to create / build approval workflows. Dashboards are simply awesome and redeeming the award online is very user friendly. I would certainly recommend Globoforce to everyone who are looking for best solution.

Hardly anything which can be termed as dislikes. Had some challenges in integrating Globoforce with SuccessFactors earlier, but with more APIs exposed now, we can have better integration. There can be improvement in user interface if mouseover pop-ups or help text can be provided.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly configurable to meet any customer requirements / needs. I would surely recommend other Organisations to use this tool.

"Dependable reward program"

What do you like best?

This program is very effective and simple. It is a great way to deliver recognition to employees and coworkers. The delivery method through email makes everything seamless and instant.
