The idea behind Wooboard is to make it easy to reward people for employees who have done a good job. Managers or colleagues can give a “woo” quickly and easily. The intention is to make the recipient more happy about their work, making them more engaged, and, therefore, more productive.
It sounds like a good idea, particularly if ongoing recognition replaces those annual performance-appraisal meetings that can be uncomfortable and unproductive. Or is it too much of a gimmick to appeal to the HR processes in large companies?
Phil Dobbie discusses the idea with Wooboard co-founder and CEO Daniel Noble, to see whether it could take off. How will it attract customers, for example?
