Shout Outs Card

Set up a Shout Outs Card to promote employee recognition

Shouts Outs are a great way of empowering employees to recognize one another for their outstanding contributions. In a few simple steps, users can send positive reinforcement to one colleague or several colleagues for a great presentation, a successful product launch, positive qualities, or anything else that deserves a Shout Out.


By adding a Shout Outs Card to a page, you add one more place where employees can be recognized on the intranet. Users cannot send Shout Outs from a Shout Out Card, Shout Outs must be sent from an Activity Card. Shout Out Cards simply display Shout Outs that have been sent.
