How Does It Work?
How to boost confidence with a simple command?
Each month, every member receives a pack of Kudos to distribute around other members for exceptional work done, or just simple acts of kindness.
You can control your kudos spending by checking the balance of what you still can give to others.
See also how much you have already received from them.

Why Employee Recognition Is Important?
Open Kudos became a great tool to practice Employee Recognition. The term stands for keeping the employees boosted and motivated by reward, appreciation, and challenge.
Employee Recognition becomes a hot topic, especially in IT, where highly performant developers require a lot of attention, as they are motivated mostly by the opportunity for personal growth and self-development (which is far more complicated than money or benefits).
Poor management, on the other hand, is one of the most important factors developers leave their jobs. This is why creating a great company culture becomes more and more crucial in the whole IT industry.
The good news is that the more people feel connected to the group and feel the part of something bigger than just fixing bugs and tasks, the more they are willing to participate in the execution of the company vision. Not to mention doing daily work.
The even better news is that now you can practice Employee Recognition easily yourself on Slack.
