Social Recognition for Multiple Employees
Within Natural HR, users are able to socially recognise a colleague who has helped them or done well in their role. If you haven't yet set up social recognition on your system, the following article will explain how to enable social recognition and explain how it can help your business.
It is also possible to recognise multiple employees at once within a single recognition post, rather than needing to create one post for each employee you'd like to recognise.
In order to do so you will first need to create a new social recognition category for the recognition of multiple employees. To do this navigate to;
Administration -> Company -> Settings -> Social -> Recognition Categories
To create your new category simply click Add where you'll be taken to a new page to create your new category. The page should look like so:
First choose a suitable name for your new recognition category, then for the recognition type select "Multiple Employees". You also have the option of creating a description for the new category as well as the option to designate an icon, the colour of that icon and the colour style too.
After these options is the Template field. This is where you enter the template for what will be posted when someone is recognised using this category. Here is an example of what could be written as the Template and then what it looks like when someone has been recognised using this category.
The [rec_names] tag is used to display the names of each employee that is being recognised, here is how it looks once people have been recognised using this category:
Once the template is made you then have the option of linking this recognition category to your company values, defining whether or not this category requires approval and lastly you can choose which users are able to use this category, everyone, HR only or HR and manager level users.
Once you are happy with your configuration on this page simply click Submit.
The new recognition category can then be used by users with the relevant permissions but clicking Self-Service -> My Requests -> Recognise a Colleague. They'll then need to hit Add, choose the recognition category they want to use and then select the employees they are recognising, since we've used the [rec_name] tag they can select multiple employees at this stage without issue, a preview of the recognition text is also displayed on this page:
A citation must then be entered, this is usually to describe what the recognition is exactly for, this is mostly useful for categories that require approval to assist the approver in deciding the outcome.
At the bottom of the page the requestor can then select whether or not this recognition is private or public, if it is public then the recognition will show up for all users in the company, otherwise only the recipients and admin/HR level users will see the recognition post.
