Polly Employee Award Quickstart Guide

Nominate your teammates for 'most likely to...' awards in Slack with Polly's Employee award as a fun and creative way to acknowledge your teammates.

Social Games

Employee Award is 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 Award into your remote team experience, is to schedule a time with 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!

How it works:

Navigate to Slack Shortcuts and select Run 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 Award, 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.
