Shout Outs

Shout Outs are an opportunity for employees to recognise their colleagues when they do good work, or help them on a project. However, unlike with Recognitions, Shout Outs are a acknowledgement of an employee excelling in tasks that fall under the expectations of their role.


Recognition is a way for employers and peers to reward and recognise their employees when they go above and beyond the expectations of their role. Each Recognition is attributed to one of your nominated company values, so that each nomination is an opportunity to not only recognise your employees for their performance, but also showcase and reinforce your values company-wide. You can nominate a universal amount of Hero Dollars to reward employees who receive Recognitions, that can then be spent in Discounts.


When it comes to creating a vibrant company, values are absolutely foundational – in fact, they’re one of the most visible aspects of any company culture. Your values set expectations for how your employees engage with customers, partners, and one another in their pursuit of your company’s goals.

Our Company Values feature helps companies set their values inside the Employment Hero platform, improving visibility for all employees. Together with Recognition, Company Values in Employment Hero will improve adoption company-wide.


Not only does our platform encourage peer to peer recognition – it’s also designed to help managers ensure their team feels appreciated. With Milestones you can set up automated recognition for important employee events like birthdays, work anniversaries and more. Manager’s will receive a notification for important upcoming dates and be prompted to schedule a shoutout in the company feed to recognise someone in their team. You can even nominate a standardised Hero Dollar bonus for each milestone.
