Note: Shoutouts was formally called the Nomination Box.

It's critical that employees know why they should participate in your Shoutouts program, and when rewards will be given out (tip: the more frequent, the more effective).

Here are some ideas on how to encourage your employees to engage with Shoutouts:

  • Daily gift to the nominee of the best nomination

  • Weekly draw for Shoutouts winner is rewarded

  • Monthly draw for Shoutouts winner is rewarded

  • Monthly award to employee with most Shoutouts for each core value

  • Every Shoutout received is rewarded by their direct manager who has a Guusto budget for sending gifts

  • Every 3-5 Shoutouts given is rewarded

You can choose one of the incentives above, but we typically see a combination of a few options to really drive engagement. And here are some great ideas for rewards:

  • Guusto Gifts

  • Donation to a charity of their choice 

  • Concert/event tickets 

  • Free lunch or breakfast 

  • Half-day Friday 

  • Gift Basket 

  • Extra vacation day

  • Conference tickets

  • Or, an entry into a large prize such as a vacation
