Ship It Today: #kudos appreciation channel
Here is an idea you can start and finish today - a public #kudos appreciation channel for your team or your company.
Opening a Slack channel for public appreciation can be a great way to boost morale and spread positivity in your workplace. Whether a small team or a large organization, having a dedicated space for team members to give shoutouts and express gratitude can create a culture of appreciation and recognition. It's a simple and effective way to acknowledge your colleagues’ hard work and contributions, and it can also help strengthen relationships and build a sense of community.
Plus, who doesn't love receiving a little recognition for their efforts?
Here are a few examples from Displate’s #kudos channel
1️⃣ Kudos to @PaladinOne for all the magic and spells you cast for Project Y to work!
2️⃣ kudos to whoever made blueberry muffins today for Charity Breakfast. they are insane!
3️⃣ Kudos to @OneOfTheTeams and the rest of the people involved in launching Lumino for the heart and dedication behind what you do. ❤️
How to do it?
Create a channel on Slack called #kudos.
Set a description like:
Give your colleagues kudos and show your appreciation and gratitude! 🙏
Announce the channel via email or existing Slack channels. Feel free to copy the template below:
We're excited to announce the launch of our new #kudos channel! This channel is dedicated to recognizing and appreciating the hard work and achievements of our colleagues.
👉 Here's how it works: simply post a message in #kudos with the person's name and a brief description of why they deserve recognition. It can be anything from going above and beyond on a project to simply being a positive influence in the office.
Let's spread positivity and show our colleagues how much we appreciate them! #kudos to all!
Give first kudos on the channel to somebody.
Ask your colleagues to do the same.
Watch the magic.
Repeat the importance of public appreciation until it hooks into your team/company culture.
There. Try it, it takes 15 minutes, and you have all the ingredients. What could go wrong? :)
