How does WorkStride work?

WorkStride uses a SaaS-based engine that can be easily configured. This engine powers programs for recognition, training and incentives. It also uses administration faculties such as customizable budgeting, communication and reporting tools.

WorkStride technology has several methods of encouraging employees, including:

  • Employee recognition: This feature keeps employees engaged with benefits such as bulk awards or on-the-spot recognition. It can provide company-to-employee, peer-to-peer and manager-to-employee recognition.
  • Service awards: This feature shows employees that their employer cares about them personally and professionally. Awards may be given for hitting professional milestones or to acknowledge birthdays, anniversaries or other personal accolades.
  • Peer-to-peer rewards: Encouraging employees to celebrate achievements bolsters team mentality while developing personal bonds and a nurtuting culture.
  • Social recognition: Similar to employee recognition, this nonmonetary recognition feature includes e-cards, achievement badges and personalized messages, among other things. Publicizing achievements in a live, centralized feed can help create a good vibe. This social stream also allows employees to share nonwork interests and hobbies, increasing connections between employees. Even customers can get in on employee recognition.
  • Reward options: Motivate employees with reward offerings such as gift cards or company merchandise. The WorkStride program comes with a virtual mall for users to visit and enjoy their rewards. There are over 500 gift card options, with a streamlined redemption process. The reward bank gives employees a visible incentive by showing their balance in real time.
  • Data and reporting: See and measure your recognition program’s success using built-in charts and reports. Admin and manager reports can show you performances filtered by users, activities, rewards and more. Employees may view reports that show their performance data and rewards they’ve received. You can also integrate WorkStride with your existing HR and finance systems.

They're really helpful and knowledgeable when they answer any questions you may have. They're also very open to allowing you to ask any questions on concerns you have. The variety of programs offered are very eye opening and allow employees to better understand themselves as well as the people they work around, which in turn allow them to take on a better working attitude. The value of the system is very appreciated and something that always has room for improvement to accommodate other individuals who may not immediately match with the current program. The ease of use allows for individuals of various types of backgrounds as well as various types of knowledge to use the system with ease.

    I never had a problem with the customer service. They were always very nice. And they were always very friendly. They were also very helpful. There wasn't really too much variety. I suppose they had a bunch of different types of rewards but none that ever really caught my eye. It wasn't a great variety for me. I didn't think the value was that great. You needed to save a lot of points before you could even get anything you would ever use. I think the prices should been lowered to satisfy more people. It was very easy to use this program. If I ever had problem, customer service was right there to help me out. I think that overall it was very easy to use and not many if any people would have a hard time.
