Kudos is Changing the Work World One Thank You at a Time

Calgary, AB and Chicago, IL (October 4, 2011) - Kudos®Inc. (Kudos) announced today, at the Motivation Show 2011, the official launch of their innovative peer-to-peer social recognition and employee engagement system.

Kudos is an interactive system whereby team members and management can recognize one another for any act, effort or attitude that supports their culture, values or objectives. The communication tool allows any team to set up an account and create personalized profiles for all group members. The system features an enhanced recognition engine that permits a team to share important information, from personal status updates to organizational visions and goals. The foundation of the system is the ability for any registered individual to publically acknowledge the efforts of their co-workers or colleagues.

“Recognition and communication are two of the most important elements to a successful business,” said Tom Short, Kudos Co-founder. “Employees need more time for authentic and meaningful connections and management needs a simple cost effective system their team will embrace. When team members are appreciated, they are more engaged, and if they are more engaged that translates to a better bottom line. That is what Kudos provides.”

In addition to the recognition system, Kudos includes many of the features you would find in social networks platforms such as current news, team member biographies, and status updates. Where Kudos is different is that it is a closed system designed to enhance communication and connections for an organization or team. The end result is a more complete platform that can help organizations of all sizes to motivate, mentor and connect with their team.

“It is amazing how powerful a simple ‘Thank You’ can be,” said Muni Boga, Kudos Co-founder. “Our vision is not to just build a better online recognition system but to create a movement that improves the way we treat each other globally.  Our hope is to make a difference, one ‘Thank You’ at a time. It is time we Thank Different.”
