Perkbox unlocks next level of borderless recognition with Microsoft Teams app
24th August, London, 2022: Perkbox has partnered with Microsoft to launch a Perkbox app for Microsoft teams. This marks the latest step in Perkbox's commitment to helping businesses embed day-to-day recognition across globally dispersed workforces.
The app is available for download from the Microsoft AppSource. It brings Perkbox’s capabilities into existing Chats and Teams, making it easier to celebrate achievements and recognise colleagues for a job well done:
- Employees gain from greater accessibility to their company recognition programme and better visibility of company-wide initiatives, through technology they are already familiar with
- Managers benefit from a simplified reward and recognition process which will help boost morale and productivity
- HR teams can see greater engagement and returns from their recognition programme, by bringing it to the tech that's already widely used by their employees
The announcement comes at a time when borderless working is on the rise. In fact, 62% of businesses plan to increase their number of remote workers around the world in the next year, according to Perkbox’s latest research.
Gautam Sahgal, CEO, Perkbox, states:
Reward and recognition are vital to building and maintaining a strong company culture that keeps people feeling valued, motivated and in-role. With greater distance between decentralised managers and their teams, it’s increasingly important that the ability to recognise employees is made easier and becomes a seamless part of the working day. Perkbox for Microsoft Teams will play a key role in making this possible, while helping businesses deploy an effective people recognition strategy within a borderless working model.
Perkbox for Microsoft Teams is part of Perkbox’s wider reward and recognition ecosystem, with further additions already planned for the future. The ecosystem includes the brand new Global Reward tool, enabling employers to launch a simple and hassle-free reward scheme.
