FAQ: Learn how our peer recognition award program works

Do my employees need to have internet access to participate in GiveAWow?

With an internet connection, your participants can give and receive peer recognition awards easily with just the click of a button, and they can keep in touch with the achievements in your business through their online employee Recognition Wall. However, your employees can benefit from the GiveAWow peer recognition program even if they don’t have internet access. Use our On-the-Spot Nomination Stations to allow employees without a web connection to share positive feedback on their co-workers’ exceptional performance and nominate peers for special awards.

How are Employee Nominations Reviewed?

GiveAWow’s sophisticated peer recognition award approval and redemption system has features to fit virtually any organizational structure. Any co-worker can nominate another for special peer awards. You choose how awards are approved at different achievement levels. Peer awards can be approved automatically based on criteria such as the number of nominations. Or nominations can be reviewed and approved by a committee or manager. Locations and divisions can each have their own approval rules.

How are awards redeemed?

GiveAWow’s integrated peer recognition award redemption system automatically notifies recipients with a congratulatory email and a posting on their online recognition wall. Recipients simply click on the link to redeem their peer recognition award and make their selections. GiveAWow keeps a history of peer recognition awards received so employees can track their progress.
