Increase the commitment and motivation of your employees

5.0 6 years ago

Comments: With Qarrot we have made our employees feel good emotionally, which generates excellent teamwork.

Pros:

Thanks to the tools of Qarrot we give our employees the necessary social recognition that generates a good work environment and great motivation. The best thing is the automatic function to celebrate the achievements and the campaigns of points and incentives.

Cons:

It took a few hours to fully integrate qarrot, but it works perfectly.

Overall Great Product

5.0 4 weeks ago New

Pros:

I love that it is customizable to adapt to our smaller organization. I also enjoy the automation of our employee birthdays and anniversaries. Qarrot helps us as an organization stay connected to each other even though we have branches spread across 4 different communities. I also enjoy that we can customize the rewards to include small business within our communities.

Cons:

I wish there was a page similar to a marketplace. We have branches spread out over 4 communities and a wide variety or employees in different stages of life. It would just be another way to connect employees and help each other out.

Maybe it's me...

Comments: To reiterate, I know this doesn't really reflect on the designers and creators of Qarrot, so this isn't really a fair criticism and it's certainly not directed at the people behind it. As I said, I think it's a good idea - on paper. Unfortunately it's the average user that either treats it or turns it into something it wasn't really meant for. Or better yet, they misuse the system in a way that's not really intended. (recognising friends for example). Overall, I personally do not use it given how quickly it became something to do "just because", if the average user used it properly and gave recognitions for people that do genuinely go above and beyond or what not, then I would follow suit. Because hard work does need reward in some way, especially for those that deserve it. Still a good idea however, just not with some of the mind-set people have on my floor, from my experience anyway.

Pros:

I certainly like the intention behind it, I will always vouch and support something that is designed to encourage reward and recognition within a working environment.

Cons:

I'm not really a fan of the social media element it's taken with the social feed and email notifications, perhaps these can be turned off somewhere but they very quickly got annoying. In all honesty, it got to the point where I set up a rule in my outlook to move any emails from Qarrot to my deleted folder, even recognitions, because they started flooding my inbox with everyone recognising each other. My main criticism is possibly a bit harsh, as it's not really anything to do with the intention, design or even the implementation behind it all, but I don't think it has much staying power. What I mean specifically, is that things like Qarrot soon turn into a popularity contest or something that people do because it's expected of them or they're asked to do it by management. We are already seeing here at Honda that people are 'recognising' friends over genuine colleagues, where they're both giving 'jokey' awards for not getting points in their Fantasy Football League, or for doing their day to day job. You know, something that would have been the minimum expectation of them before Qarrot was about. People are now being rewarded/recognised for doing their normal Job it seems. ("Thanks for sending over those forms in a timely manner" - is something you might see and think, isn't that expected of you anyway?) More in the next box.

Qarrot Survey

5.0 2 months ago New

Pros:

The recognition and gift cards. I like the gift card options. I only get Esso gift card so I am glad there is at least one gift card I can get.

Cons:

Would be great if I can get etransfer to my bank account option. I only redeem Esso gift cards but if I didn't drive the other option would be restaurants or Amazon. Otherwise adding Walmart gift card would be an alternative option if available.

Thank you so much for your review and precious feedback, Janice! We're glad to hear that you've been enjoying the rewards available in Qarrot :) And, good news, the Walmart gift card is available in both Canada and the U.S. 🎁

review of Qarrot

5.0 5 years ago

Comments: Fantastic. Every time we've had an issue I feel the team has gone above and beyond to help us out or to make things right. Even if we find a small bug they fix it right away they follow up with us to tell us it has been corrected. Excellent service!

Pros:

The end user experience. If you want to reward someone for doing a good job, they are not limited by what gift card you can find at the local store. Being able to customize rewards with comply logos is amazing.

Cons:

Because you have so many options, it is difficult for some of our team leads to create campaigns. No matter how many times we try to walk people though something they seem to get lost. Also, the hard close on a campaign is a little difficult to work around. We have to end our campaigns a few days after they really end to give the employee enough time to enter in all their data.
