Intranet Tip: Create an Employee Thank You Forum


In brief: Create a positive work environment by letting any employee add posts to thank colleagues for work well done.

The most popular part of the Farm Bureau Bank’s intranet is the “Shout Outs” section. Here any employee can add a news post to thank another colleague or team for a job well done. Employees from across the company contribute, keeping the section fresh. This works so well because it lets employees take centre stage, spotlights good work, and highlights a supportive work environment.

Use a Thank You Forum to encourage peer recognition and kudos.
