Start Peer-to-Peer Recognition
Create an Organisation
The first step is creating an account for your organisation on Roslin. You do this from our sign-up page. The person who creates the organisation automatically becomes its first admin.
You'll add the rest of your people to this company later.
Activate a Subscription (Optional)
If you'd like to add custom Recognition Badges or use our advanced analytics, you'll need to enable a subscription to our Engagement Pro Plan. All the Employee Recognition features are in our Engagement Module.
Browse to Admin >> Subscriptions on the sidebar and upgrade the Roslin Engagement Plan. Our Starter plan for Engagement is free forever. Our Pro plan allows for a 30-day free trial to test it out.
Create Custom Badges (Optional, Pro Plan)
You can view the badges used for recognition on the badge screen. Go Engagement > Recognition > Badges. Click Add Badge to create a new badge.
Set the old badges to inactive or archive them so that they aren't shown as options for your users to select. You can do this by editing them using the pencil button as shown above.
Send a Communication to your People (Recommended)
Before you add your people to Roslin, we recommend that you first send a mail to everyone explaining what it is and why you're implementing it. We've found that you get the best results with Roslin if you first notify your people about it, what you intend to use it for, and why it's important. This builds trust in your project and Roslin.
We recommend something like the following:
We're deploying a new Employee Experience Platform called Roslin.
Peer-to-Peer RecognitionWe chose to partner with Roslin and use their Recognition tool to make it easier to bring visibility to the great work that each of us do daily. This will help us make employees feel valued and improve employee engagement and in turn create a happier and more productive workplace.With Recognition you can:•Post public recognition of co-workers for their great work•Comment on and add kudos to recognition posts by others•Tie recognition posts to core organisation values and goals•You can learn how to create recognition here: https://help.roslinlab.com/article/19-create-recognition
Account Activation and Support
When your account is created on Roslin, you will receive an activation email.
1) It will show what email address was used for your account. This email address is your username for logging in.
2) Click the Activate Account button in the email. You will be taken to a screen to choose a password.
If you have any technical issues with the platform, please email email@example.com. You can also visit the Roslin Help centre by going to https://help.roslinlab.com/ for faster self-service. If you have any further issues or questions when using Roslin, then please message me.
Project Leader Name
Whitelist our domain (Optional, Recommended)
It's crucial that our emails are delivered to your people. Often, email servers are too quick to send new domains to spam which can hurt your activation and survey response rates. We recommend that you whitelist our domain to ensure that all these emails get through. This is easy to do and normally handled by your IT team. Read more here: Email Whitelisting.
Import your People into Roslin
Now that you've done your planning, decided what to measure, and communicated with your people, it's time to import them into Roslin.
If you have a small team, this could be done by adding them one at a time. You'll be able to learn how to do so in our article on adding users.
We typically recommend importing your people using a CSV file. You likely already have a list of your people on another HR system or in a spreadsheet. If you convert this to a CSV file, you can follow our instructions on importing using a CSV to add all your people quickly.
We do also assist with integrations with various cloud systems like BambooHR. This is only available to our Pro customers. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need help with this.
Get your management team involved
Now it's time to drive the peer-to-peer project internally. We've found that getting your leaders to recognise their people on Roslin is best to get the ball rolling. Focus on genuine, authentic recognition and engage with it by leaving Kudos and Comments.
