Integrating Bonusly with your chat and collaboration tools results in an average 6% bump to our already industry-high program participation rates.

By adding Bonusly to Microsoft Teams, you can increase the effectiveness of your recognition program and keep your remote and international teams engaged.

If your organization uses Bonusly and Microsoft Teams but you're not using them together, integrate Bonusly with Microsoft Teams for free right away!

The Bonusly integration for Microsoft Teams brings employee recognition into everyone's daily workflow, meeting people where they are instead of taking them to a new browser window or (yet another) tab. 😅

In the five minutes it takes to integrate Bonusly and Microsoft Teams, you'll significantly increase how often employees interact with your recognition program and how appreciated they feel as a result. Our integration also increases the visibility of great work, engages remote and international employees, and provides managers with valuable people analytics data for performance management. 💅

Increase the visibility of great work

When you connect Bonusly and Microsoft Teams, your employees will be able to give Bonusly recognition directly from Microsoft Teams and get timely updates in a dedicated channel when new recognition posts are sent across your organization. Employees can also easily claim an award, pick a reward, or make a donation.

With a channel in Microsoft Teams where recognition posts, achievements, and donation announcements surface throughout the work week, your employees will have a far easier time remembering to recognize one another.

Engage remote and international employees

Integrating Bonusly with Microsoft Teams can enhance your work culture by supporting the relationship-building initiatives you're already running. In addition to surfacing individual posts, Bonusly will post manual award recognition to your dedicated Microsoft Teams channel.

Let's say you're planning a trivia event. You can encourage people to participate by offering Bonusly points to the winners or everyone who attends. After the trivia event, you can follow up by giving recognition from a Manual Award that's especially for team building or culture. Those posts will stand out in your dedicated Microsoft Teams channel and remind people who didn't participate in your last company culture event to participate in the next one!

Provide managers with valuable people analytics data for performance management

If you're familiar with Microsoft Teams' Praise feature, you might have noticed that you have to manually tag the people who should get notified about the praise you're giving. If a manager doesn't consistently get notified of the praise their direct reports are receiving, they'll have a hard time tracking whether all of their team members are being fairly recognized.

When someone gives your direct report Bonusly recognition in Microsoft Teams, that post will automatically get added to your report's Bonusly profile page and incorporated into Bonusly Analytics. Managers can trust Bonusly analytics data to inform their performance review conversations and be sure that it takes all of their reports' recent recognition into account.

Getting Bonusly and Microsoft Teams together

It only takes a few clicks to add Bonusly to your Microsoft Teams channels. Set up the integration now if you're already a customer.
