Company feed: Shout out


Shout Outs is an employee recognition feature inside the Employment Hero platform. This feature is where anyone in your business can thank someone else for helping them out. They might have saved the day on a massive project, stayed behind to teach someone a new skill or just been there to make them feel better.

Employment Hero allows the whole company to see this feed and can show their appreciation and support with emojis. It’s a great way to help call out all those quiet achieving Heroes and say thank you for their hard work.
