Interview: Sabrina Roccazzella, HRBP
As a fast-growing hybrid company, Cashrewards wanted to create a culture of recognition for employees that was easy to use with their heavy Microsoft Teams users. Sabrina mentioned, “We’re in Microsoft Teams all day, every day. Matter worked perfectly because it works where we work. We were confident we were going to get a good uptake in usage.”
Cashrewards uses Matter’s core recognition features: Feedback Friday, Kudos, and Custom Kudos. Sabrina states, “The recognition loop (Feedback Friday) was big for us. It helped us kickstart kudos. Plus, it integrated well with our culture as we love GIFs, emojis, etc.”
Their biggest win as Sabrina mentioned is, “Being able to bring our “joy and yay” personality across a fun and easy way.” From recent surveys, Cashrewards has heard that over 90% of their employees feel comfortable giving and receiving feedback, and 72% feel comfortable with recognition. Even in their hybrid environment, Sabrina noted, “We’re seeing appreciation across multiple teams (e.g., operations and client services). The visibility across the business has had a big uptake.”
“It’s all about your culture. Our brand is less formal, more “joy and yay”. Matter allows us to bring our sense of personality to the recognition that fits our culture.”
