ONOR – Encourage Your Team

ONOR is a tool that employers can use to foster positive work environments. The web-based platform gives employers a way to publicly recognize the hard work of specific individuals. This type of public recognition improves company morale and encourages other staffers to improve their performance in the office.

Stop overlooking your most dedicated employees and start rewarding them for a job well done. Set up your company account and invite each employee to participate. ONOR encourages you to add photos of each employee and customize the appearance of the platform to fit your company’s branding and aesthetic. The next time an employee does something worth recognizing (like staying late at the office or finishing an important project on time), give that person an “honor.” An honor is basically an award that can be used to recognize hard work, out-of-the-box thinking, and anything else that’s valuable to your company.

ONOR wants everyone to get in on the action, not just managers. Employees can acknowledge and comment on the awards that their peers have received. They can also add their own photos personalize the platform. Allowing team members to connect and recognize each other’s hard work empowers people and improves both online and offline engagement. Overall,ONOR is an excellent tool for motivating employees and creating a positive office culture.

Practical Uses:

  • Create a more positive company culture

  • Improve morale by doling out frequent rewards
  • Share positive feedback immediately with the entire staff

    I really love ONOR. The design is top notch and the idea as a whole is genius.

  2. I love the guys at SOUTH. They recently created a stripped down high quality website for me, and I am continually getting rave reviews of their update. Their work is solid, and I have had the privilege to join ONOR as well. It truly is a one of a kind, easy to use, and great way to encourage my team, and keep everyone in the loop. It’s a small cost to keep a growing team motivated, and worth every penny.
