If you want to go beyond peer-to-peer employee recognition to create a more human work culture for your people, it only makes sense to help them share in each other’s happy moments. In a traditional office setting, this is often a transitory ritual. Employees pass around a greeting card to commemorate a birthday, new baby, wedding, or home purchase. There’s cake and a brief gathering. But the moment soon passes and everyone returns to their to-do list for the day.

Such celebrations can (and should) be more memorable, enduring, and personalized. It should be easy for peers to share in the joy by sending a reward that the recipient will cherish and remember. And while some organizations are phasing in a return to the office, others are waiting longer – or never requiring their employees to physically come back.

That’s why many world-class organizations – especially those already familiar with Social Recognition® – are turning to Life Events®, another part of Workhuman® Cloud. Life Events enables organizations to make the shift from work-life balance to work-life harmony by inspiring employees to stay connected, share their stories, and support each other to keep morale high. This can deliver the best of both worlds – a healthy culture and a healthy bottom line.
