Dec 14, 2020| Reading time: 2min

BY ChartHop

Especially in a remote workplace, celebrating employee milestones – like anniversaries and birthdays – can help your employees stay connected and engaged. Giving employees special attention – or knowing when to give them space during much needed time off – can make them feel valued and recognized.

With the new calendar sync features, ChartHop makes it easy for all employees to stay in the know of colleagues’ milestones and time-off.

Setting up your calendar export

Exporting time off, anniversaries, and birthdays from ChartHop to your calendar is easy.

To enable it, reach out to [email protected]. Once enabled, you should see the option to export in the Calendar section of your dashboard.

You can then dynamically filter through any part of the organization – so if you’re looking for just the marketing team’s birthdays, you can customize the export to include only the data you need.

Once you confirm your filters, you can then export to Google Calendar, Microsoft Outlook, other Calendar software as well as Microsoft Excel and Google Sheets.

Employee Shoutouts Bundle

Sometimes, a small gesture can go a long way. Especially in a remote workforce, providing ways for colleagues to show some love when teammates bring in a win can brighten up someone’s day.

Now with ChartHop’s Employee Shoutouts Bundle, you can easily acknowledge colleagues for their great work.

A source of record for employee accomplishments

Recognizing your teammates’ great work is easy! To access the form, just click the Shoutout button on anybody’s ChartHop profile.

Using this form, employees can share “Shoutouts”, in long-text form, for team members when they accomplish something or help each other out!

We recommend tying your shoutouts to your organizations’s values. This helps build alignment towards your culture and showcases the behavior you want in the workplace.

The shoutouts automatically populate in your org chart, enabling you to view your team’s shoutouts, all in once place.

If you have our Slack Notifier installed – we can funnel these shoutouts to either a unique #shoutout channel or any existing slack channel so that everyone can see the positive feedback.
