Develop interpersonal skills with an employee experience tool

Interpersonal skills help us interact with our colleagues. Without them, we won't work well as a team. So it's important these positive behaviours are recognised and rewarded just like performance.

When someone is a great team player you should let them know. Likewise, if a leader has inspired their team to do better, show them your appreciation. Using an employee experience solution can make this easier, as you can reach every employee no matter where they're based. 

Often, an employee experience solution will include a reward and recognition program, so employees can recognise each other on the go from a mobile app. This functionality is also great for managers who also have the option to allocate rewards.
