New WooBoard features equal better employee value

We’ve added a whole raft of new features to our WooBoard platform to help you better motivate teams and improve employee engagement.

These are the new features:

  • The WooBoard rewards store, now open for the first time in Australia. It lets you send digital rewards to recognise employee accomplishments.
  • The WooBoard anniversaries and services badge. This automates events, giving everyone in the organisation the chance to join in the celebrations of important milestones.
  • The WooBoard link handling facility, which lets you see an image and description preview when sharing links with others.
  • The WooBoard hashtag archive, which saves time when searching across hashtags for messages with specific themes or content.
  • The new WooBoard Emoji functionality so that you can add more personality to your posts using emoticons.

These new features reflect the investment REFFIND is making in the WooBoard platform to make sure you get more value from your workforce through engagement and communication.
