100-year-old Terryberry (www.terryberry.com) announces new partnership that will make their employee recognition software platform even more accessible to non-desk employees. This comes through a new integration between Red e App’s mobile communication, workflow and data management platform and Terryberry’s 360 Recognition platform.
Employee rewards and recognition software has been gaining popularity with employers exponentially over the last decade as new functionality emerges for social interaction, reporting, administration and communication. “These software tools help engage staff and make the programs more effective,” says Mike Byam managing partner of Terryberry, the organization behind the 360 Recognition platform.
Industries such as; manufacturing, healthcare, hospitality, and retail have a large percentage of staff who do not work at a desk and oftentimes do not have access to a company email address. These non-desk employees historically have been at a disadvantage when it comes to staying connected to their company, operations, culture, and important announcements. In many cases, they depend on a physical bulletin board, paper-based communication, their supervisor, or ‘the grapevine’ to keep them in the loop. This can cause increased costs, operational inefficiencies, delays, and incorrect information. Communication about staff rewards and recognition often gets put on the backburner. These messages may be conveyed inappropriately, or may never even make it to the deserving recipient.
“It is really important to us and to our clients to ensure that all employees have an opportunity to participate in giving and receiving recognition for their great work,” said Byam. “The Red e App relationship and communication platform is another arrow in the Terryberry quiver to engage and connect the unconnected (or non-desk workforce) with their recognition platform.”
Red e App (www.redeapp.com) is a highly structured, secure and private messaging, workflow, and data management platform used by hundreds of organizations to communicate with unconnected team members. Red e App optimizes communication and processes for HR engagement, training/learning, change management, schedule/shift changes and environmental health and safety. Many features of Terryberry’s 360 Recognition platform utilize email, SMS and push notifications to communicate rewards and recognition information. For organizations using Red e App, the new integration enables 360 Recognition notifications within Red e App as an additional notification option, simplifying and streamlining the communication process for clients.
“Recognition at its core is communication,” said Byam. “When a team member demonstrates the values that help the company succeed, ensuring that message of appreciation is delivered to the individual is really important.”
“We’re thrilled to partner with Terryberry,” says Jonathan Erwin CEO of Red e App. “We understand the importance of consistent and effective communication in employee recognition and we know that companies who actively sponsor employee recognition reduce turnover, increase profits, retention and build stronger businesses.”
“We have helped organizations build a managed and measured highway of communication reaching their hourly and non-desk workers. A meaningful connection to these ‘frontline and behind-the-scenes’ employees remains critical to operational excellence.” continued Erwin. “It’s especially rewarding for us to be able to help organizations build a connected culture that involves all members of their staff.”
Terryberry will demonstrate features of the 360 Recognition Platform including the Red e App integration at the HR Technology Expo this week.
