2. Celebrations by Eloops
It’s widely acknowledged that feeling valued by our employer, managers, and teammates makes us happier & more productive at work, whereas feeling unappreciated makes us more likely to quit. However, showing employees you value them by celebrating their special events can be overwhelmingly time-consuming for those responsible for making it happen.
Celebrations by Eloops is designed to streamline & automate the celebration of all meaningful employee moments – now you can mark every birthday, work anniversary, milestone, and life event with a personalized greeting & optional gift to boost sense of belonging and ensure every one of your people feels valued.
You can automate long-term campaigns or create one-off greeting & gift campaigns. You have the option to turn the celebration into a team affair to enhance workmate bonds & include global gift cards that are suitable for all your employees, no matter where they are. And with built-in multichannel delivery, you can be sure both celebrant and teammates will receive their messages in the right place, at the right time.

3. Recognition by Eloops
Marking & celebrating meaningful moments is not the only way to communicate that your employees are valued. Everyone likes their work efforts to be noticed & small gestures of recognition can make a big difference to motivation & morale across your whole workforce.
Recognition by Eloops has been built for you to build & integrate a powerful culture of appreciation at your organization. Here is how to make it easy for your employees to appreciate & recognize their peers in a way that aligns with your stated company values, through the transfer of virtual coins to each other on a regular basis.
As an HR Manager you get to make it very much your own by customizing with your company values, choosing the recognition coins allowance you want to give to your employees & setting the sending & receiving limits you’d like in place. According to your choices, each of your employees automatically receives a monthly allowance of virtual coins specifically to transfer to their workmates. They cannot retain these coins for themselves & they are provided on a ‘use them or lose them’ basis!
Every employee sending recognition coins to their peers is emotionally rewarded with a ‘Thank you for sending’ message to reinforce their generous behavior. And the recipient of recognition coins not only gets the coins to collect then redeem for a globally valid gift card, they also receive a notification that one of their colleagues has sent them recognition & with a simple click can view both the value(s) they have been recognized for & a personal message from the sender.
Plus, if you have an Eloops feed, both senders & receivers can choose to make their recognition public by sharing their appreciation for colleagues directly on the feed for everyone to see, thereby amplifying the good vibes across your entire workforce!
