Are you wondering how you can make the most out of your Kudoboard business plan? There are so many different ways companies can use Kudoboard, so let’s break them down together and find out why Kudoboard is an excellent way to reward your staff members.
1. Workplace Appreciation
Workplace appreciation is one of the simplest ways to help your employees feel valued. Many companies struggle with this concept. Workplace appreciation is essential because it allows workers to feel like what they are doing matters to someone. Workplace appreciation is more than just saying “thanks, great work.”
“More than 35% of employees consider lack of recognition of their work as the biggest hindrance to productivity.”Corporate Communication Experts
Many companies have a “performance review” where they may provide some form of verbal appreciation. That is not enough for employees to feel like their work matters.
3 Reasons to Show Workplace Appreciation
Workplace appreciation is a great way to promote and build a positive workplace culture. Let’s go over three reasons why workplace appreciation is essential.
- It helps employees feel greater satisfaction in their work.
- Appreciation improves workplace morale.
- Appreciation builds staff loyalty.
How Kudoboard Can Help with Workplace Appreciation
Let’s go over how Kudoboard can help your remote team. Remote work can be tricky. Employees don’t get a chance to have in-person meetings, and you can’t just pop by their desks to tell them they are doing a good job. Kudoboard allows management to create unique and fun shout-out boards, thank you boards, and more to help employees feel the love and positivity.
Look at this example of a Kudoboard shoutout board. With a shoutout board, management can choose one employee a month/week (for smaller companies), and other co-workers can add gifs, quotes, pictures, and more to tell that employee why they are fantastic. A shout-out board is just one example of how Kudoboard can help remote teams build each other up and feel appreciated.
2. Work Anniversary
Celebrating employees' time at a company is crucial to showing them how valued their work is. Workplace anniversaries help reduce employee turnover, which can help save companies a lot of money. According to HR Dive, employee turnover costs companies around 15,000 per employee. This cost is due to time spent training new employees, loss of productivity, and more.
3 Reasons To Celebrate Work Anniversaries
Aside from employee turnover, more reasons to celebrate work anniversaries include the following:
- Celebrating work anniversaries shows that you are interested and invested in the employee’s development in the company.
- It fosters employee loyalty within the company.
- It gets employees excited about coming to work.
How Kudoboard Can Make Work Anniversaries Special
Kudoboard helps make your employees' work anniversaries simple by putting all the work anniversary messages in one place without passing a card around. Here is an example of a 25th work anniversary Kudoboard. Whether you celebrate a first anniversary or a 25th anniversary, kudoboard can help.
3. Office Birthdays
Celebrating birthdays is so essential for any team so that employees feel valued. Employees who feel valued and seen are more likely to stay, so celebrating office birthdays is an excellent way to ensure employee retention. Let’s go over more ways why celebrating birthdays in the workplace matters.
3 More Reasons to Celebrate Birthdays
- It increases employee happiness.
- Employees are more productive.

How Kudoboard Can Make Office Birthdays Easier

4. Welcome and Farewell Cards
Welcoming and sending employees off in a tasteful manner is always helpful in creating a positive work culture. A positive work culture helps with employee retention and satisfaction. Here are some examples of what you can include in the welcome message. Welcome messages are great for motivating employees, fostering connections between employees, their team, and management, and giving them a taste for the company culture.
Similarly, farewell cards are essential because they show how much the employee was valued during their career. This is especially important for employees who have made a significant impact on the company.
How Kudoboard Can Streamline Welcomes & Farewells
Whether you are saying hello, or saying goodbye, kudoboard is a great way to let your employees know they are valued. Your team can perfect the process of creating a group leaving card, and you can see what a sample team farewell card would look like with Kudoboard. I love the ease of Kudoboard and how simple it is to have multiple people sign.
