I am not certain, but I think they would like to stay in the O365 realm. Though, I will make note of that...
What ever happened to just sending a company wide "Thanks Karen" emails?
Why does a project like this even exist?
Kudos are a big part of many companies, and it's not hard to imagine why. Many companies will actually pay some bonuses or gift cards for kudos. A $50 visa gift card is an investment well spent when you have someone busting their ass. I have been on the kudos side and when you get a small token of thanks beyond a "Karen" email it means alot.
Sure, but sending out a Kudos through some specific application has nothing to do with the reward aspect that you're discussing, and wasn't at all a part of what I was discussing in my post that you opt'd to downvote.
This is specifically the delivery of an announcement, email has a very good delivery record. Why use something else for the announcement?
Someone from HR or wherever will still deliver the reward in person for that employee busting their ass.
