Polly Employee Awards Quickstart Guide

Employee Awards* are a fun and creative way to acknowledge your teammates. From small recognitions to large shoutouts, use the feature to highlight individuals and show your whole workspace, just how great someone is doing. 

A great way to incorporate Employee Awards into your remote team experience, is to schedule a time when colleagues and jump in on a call. Before launching the nominations, briefly explain the category you would like to play in, and any specific rules.

We like to suggest only one nomination per category, and that winners give a little speech at the end. Encourage your teammates to keep things lighthearted and of course - to have fun!

*Employee Awards is available to users on the Social or Pro Plan. Learn more about pricing and to sign up for a free trial here.

How it works:

Navigate to Slack Shortcuts and select Start Employee Award Game.
You can also begin a game through Polly’s App Home, or through the web app.

Choose where you want Polly to post the Employee Awards, the speed at which participants should enter answers, and a game category.

Now post and start your game! A message will be sent to the channel letting members know something exciting is about to happen, and 30 seconds later, the game will begin.

Once the game begins, you can nominate your colleagues by selecting or searching form the user list. Polly will reward the nominee with the most votes, in the channel at the end.

Note that a thread will appear while the game progresses, posting previous questions and the winner as the game is played.

When complete, a summary of all award recipients will be posted to the channel.
