Manage Awards
Awards are a great way to recognize your employee's achievements. Navigate to Platform Administration > Awards, Values & Gifts to manage all your award settings.

Set Up an Award

The process to create a new award consists of the following steps:
    Click on Create Award under the Awards tab.
    Select the type of award.
    Enter the award details.
    Define nominee, nominator and approver eligibility criteria.
    Review and Confirm the settings.

Select Award Type

Spot Awards - Spot Awards are generally for a special contribution accomplished over a relatively short time period. Use this option when award givers are eligible to give away awards directly, without needing approvals.
Awards that need approval - Use this option when the award needs to go through an approval process before being given to the awardee.

Add Award Description

Complete the award details. Select if the award will be for an individual or team. Award values are either fixed or within a range.

Team/Individual award

As the name suggests, you may define an award for a team or an individual.
Individual Award: Can be given to a single recipient.
Team Award: Can be given to two recipients or more.
Team awards require the permission to either divide the points equally among the team members, or each recipient individually receives the points configured.

Range type award points

Awards of a ranging value can exist only for Spot Award.
Award givers can give points within the range defined.

Define Nominator, Nominee and Approver

Restrict the usage of awards to specific groups of users by setting up constraints on nominator, nominee and approver eligibility. A couple of hypothetical examples would make these settings easier to understand.
ABC Corp. has instituted a couple of awards aligned with its business goals. Let’s review how each of these can be set up:
Example 1: The ”Jerry Maguire” award is meant for the best performer in the last quarter across the Sales department. Nominations may be raised by first-line managers and need to be approved by the VP of Sales. The settings for each field should be as configured as below.
Jerry Maguire - Nominee
Jerry Maguire - Nominator
Jerry Maguire - Approver

    On the newly created row, select ”Designation” under Filter.
    8.
    Select ”Exactly matches” under Match Type.
    9.
    Select ”CMO” under Values.
P.S.: In the above example, the OR options help us specify the approver eligibility criteria (ANY) of the CEO and CMO.
Use OR when matching ANY of the clauses is sufficient for eligibility. Use AND when matching ALL of the clauses is necessary for eligibility.

Advanced Settings

Some advanced features allowed in an award setup are as follows.

Award Self

When enabled, this allows a nominator to nominate themselves for an award.

Attach Certificate

Use this option to attach a certificate template to your award. Certificates are configurable and get populated with the awardees' details automatically.

Notify Stakeholders

With this option, notify people related to the awardee when an award is given. This can include relations like the manager, HRBP, department head, etc. Note that the awardee’s teammates are notified through email and other notifications for congratulating the award recipient.

Edit an Award

The following steps can edit awards:

    icon.
    Make the necessary changes and save your update.
    The existing nomination will adhere to the previous award configuration.

Enable/Disable Award

Control the awards that are eligible for usage by enabling or disabling them. Disabled awards will not show in the list of available awards when starting the awarding process.
Any nominations already created before an approval-based award is disabled will continue to exist. This only disables new nominations from being created. To remove nominations for a disabled award, urge the approvers to do so.
    Under Awards tab, hover over the award you want to enable or disable. Click on the
    icon.
