By awarding your team mates with badges, you demonstrate high level of engagement and recognition.

  3. Click the Award badge button
  4. Select a Badge, who should receive this badge, leave a comment and award
  5. Click the Award badge button

Permissions

Gtmhub also provides permissions on who can define and award badges.

By default, only users with admin role will be able to create and award badges. You can easily give access to people from the Human Resources team or team managers and leads to do so.

To allow a team member to create, manage, and award Badges for your account, you'd need to assign them with the pre-defined HCM role. Here's how to do that:

  1. Navigate to Setup > Users.
  2. Select the user/s that you want to assign the role to and choose the HCM (Human Capital Management) role.
  3. Check hcm from the pop-up menu

In case someone is assigned with a custom role, edit the role and make sure that Manage Badges is ticked:

  1. Click the Setting button
  2. Users > Manage roles
  3. Choose a specific role you need to set a permission for
  4. Scroll down and check the Manage Badges box
  5. Click the Save button

All awarded badges are recorded in the People > Announcements feed where you can react with a clap or comment. It's a nice way to thank to the person who assigned you with the badge 😉

Moreover, when you or any of your teammates are being rewarded a badge, you'll receive the following notification message via e-mail:
