Get ready to make recognition and rewards even more special with Work Tango’s Special Recognition. (Plus our new Special Catalogs)

Introducing Special Recognition

Special Recognition is a new, unique capability that lets you send employee recognition for those milestone events or initiatives that go above and beyond the realm of traditional recognition, rewards, or incentives. (Think birthdays, big work anniversaries, spot bonuses, Employee of the Year, and other huge achievements.) Special Recognition introduces tokens, a special rewards currency, to the WorkTango platform. People who receive tokens for major Milestones can spend them in the Global Rewards store. When changing their view from points to tokens your employees will see a more curated rewards selection available.

Our goal with Special Recognition is to provide our customers a seamless experience within WorkTango’s platform to operate foundational programs for their business. By capitalizing on the high employee adoption rate they already have with WorkTango, Special Recognition allows organizations to enhance their Recognition & Rewards program without incurring additional costs or increasing the amount of time and effort necessary to effectively manage these initiatives.

A special rewards experience that’s easy to administer

To ease the administrative burden of managing these programs, WorkTango customers can automate milestone special recognitions. In addition, Special Recognition helps to reduce budget overages by providing greater control over and visibility into rewards spending.

By using Special Catalogs, customers can separate rewards budgets for each catalog, giving them greater control over the cost of items and redemption activity to ensure no more spending surprises. Since Special Recognition and Special Catalogs do not require allocating additional funds, organizations can now do more with their existing rewards budget.
