Get ready to make recognition and rewards even more special with Kazoo’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 Kazoo platform. Employees who receive tokens for major milestones can spend them in their company’s custom Special Catalog, a unique rewards space containing more customized, specially curated rewards.

“Our goal with Special Recognition is to give our customers a seamless experience within Kazoo to operate foundational programs for their business,” said Elizabeth Loucheur, SVP of Product. “By capitalizing on the high employee adoption rate they already have with Kazoo, Special Recognition allows our customers to enhance their recognition & rewards programs 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

Special Rewards catalog in Kazoo platformTo ease the administrative burden of managing these programs, Kazoo customers can automate milestone special recognitions. In addition, Special Recognition helps to reduce budget overages by giving Kazoo customers greater control over and visibility into employees’ rewards spend.

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 spend, Kazoo customers can now do more with their existing rewards budget.
