Elevate your culture with Greeting cards
In this article, you'll explore ways to boost your employee engagement and strengthen relationships in your team with Greeting cards.
We're excited to introduce our latest recognition feature — Greeting Cards 🎉
This great new addition is all about celebrating special moments together amongst your team, no matter where they are based.
It’s a simple way for you and the managers in your organisation to celebrate birthdays, work anniversaries and other important employee events — all in one place.
At Perkbox, we understand that acknowledging and celebrating milestones and achievements is a great way to build a culture of appreciation in your team. This in turn boosts spirit and creates that ‘one team, one dream’ feel!
Over time, we’ve heard from many customers that they either do this manually or have to source an external provider to help with this task.
That’s why we built Greeting cards — to simplify the job of celebrating your team and to streamline this part of your recognition programme.
No more collecting messages from each employee manually. No more making sure your external tool has enough credit. All this is done for you on Perkbox — at no extra cost.
Greeting cards make it effortless for you and your team to create heartfelt moments that genuinely matter to your employees.
No more hassle of manually collecting notes from your team — with Greeting cards the collaboration is seamless. Anyone can create a Greeting card and simply invite others to write their message.
Whether people are across the desk from each other or across the globe — anyone can be invited to add their message. The card will then be delivered to the person at a time that works for their location.
Whether your employees are collaborating on a card or receiving the celebration, the experience within the platform and through our communications is designed to bring them together, creating stronger relationships.
We designed Greeting cards to be easy to navigate for anyone on your team. This is how to get started:
1. Pick ‘Create a Greeting card’ from our refreshed menu within the Celebration hub
Note: Depending on role permissions, your team will see some or all of these menu items:
2. Set up the basics
You'll need to:
Note: Admins and managers will also have the option to add a Reward. Only one Reward can be added to each Greeting card.
3. Add your message
You can add your message straight away or skip this and return to it later.
And that’s it! Everyone invited to collaborate will receive reminders, and if they miss the deadline they’ll still be able to celebrate their colleague by commenting on the Greeting card.
On the day, the card will appear on the Recognition feed and everyone involved, including the team that the recipient is part of, will be nudged to read each other’s notes, creating a feeling of celebration.
All the Greeting cards an employee collaborates on will appear in ‘My celebrations’, so that they can revisit them at any time.
Greeting cards are a simple way to build a culture of appreciation — improving employee morale, while being easy to manage for People teams and line managers.
Plus, the feature comes at no extra cost and is included in all packages.
