Drive Employee Recognition and Gauge Success

K2’s employee recognition solution provides employees a simple solution to nominate their peers for recognition. Managers can also review nominations as they are submitted and incorporate the information provided in the nomination form to understand how their teams are performing. With the help of a recognition tool, managers and leadership alike can engage and elevate their employees appropriately.

Using a SmartForm, employees can submit recognition for their peers using custom criteria:  

    • Date
    • Name
    • Employee Nomination
    • Description
    • Project Spotlight 


Managers and HR Take Action

  • The nomination gets submitted and notifies the manager who can add additional information to the nomination or pass along to Human Resources. 
  • HR can review the nomination and approve whether appropriate for recognition.


Award Employees

  • Nominations who are recognized by their peers can be rewarded a prize based on their hard work. 
  • Employees who often receive recognition can be considered and elevated for promotion purposes.
