HR mobile app company feed: Shout outs

Overview

As an employee, your co-workers may step in and assist you with an urgent customer phone call, or even stay back at work for a few hours to help you finish your current project. In these scenarios shouting out your co-workers is a good way to give the recognition for the extra work they have put it to help you in your role and in meeting your deliverables.

The shout Outs feature on the mobile company feed allows you to do just this, post a public message to either your team or the whole organisation thanking a co-worker for their help. You can also use this feature to comment on a shout post made by yourself or another employee.

HR Best Practice

You should use this feature to show your appreciation to your colleagues and teammates for any hard work they have put in. However, there is no approval step before the HR platform shares the shout-out to the company feed, therefore please review all content before posting.

Creating a culture that promotes shout-outs boosts morale and ensures employees feel appreciated for the work they do. Should you wish to send a more formal recognition that links to the Company Values within your organisation, you can use the Recognition feature.

  4. Tap on the Share With drop-down
    field and select either:
    • Everyone: Every employee in
      your organisation will see the
      shout out.
    • Mentioned only: Only the
      nominated users and their
      managers will see the
      shout out.
  5. Type in the required message.

    Helpful Hint

    Typing @ into the text field, followed by
    an employee's name, will tag that employee
    in the shout out. Shout outs do not have
    a limit on the number of employee tags,
    so there is no limit to how many
    employees you can include.

  6. Click the Document or Camera icon
    to add an attachment to the shout out.

    Helpful Hint

    The platform only allows you to attach
    a .jpg, .png and .gif (IOS and Android)
    and .pdf (Android) to a shout out.

    The option to attach images and
    documents to a shout out is
    only available on our Premium and
    Platinum plans.

Author Recommended

So you have now created a shout out and posted it for your organisation or team mates to read and comment on, however you may wonder what next can I do on the Mobile HR app. There are two recommendations I would make on this front and they are:

  1. The Notifications Settings feature is where you can set the time you will receive push notifications if for example someone mentions you in a comment on a shout out post.
  2. The Recognition feature allows you to nominate an employee for showcasing your organisation's values and you would use this where an employee has gone above and beyond in helping you out.
