A CULTURE OF RECOGNITION FROM DAY ONE
Recognition and rewards aren’t just an afterthought at Emmaus. New team members will experience these from Day One — Kazoo, the employee experience platform used to enable peer-to-peer recognition at Emmaus, is part of every new hire’s on-boarding program, ensuring those who join Emmaus immediately know they’re also joining a culture of appreciation.
WHERE DSPs DO TRULY REWARDING WORK
Direct Support Professionals who work with Emmaus are rewarded with more than just fulfilling work. Every team member in the Emmaus family is equipped and trained to recognize their peers, resulting in over 40,000 pieces of recognition being shared across the organization in recent years.
Co-workers aren’t the only ones taking notice: Recently, some of the praise sent internally was used to nominate and earn one Emmaus team member the title of 2019 DSP of the Year of Missouri by American Network of Community Options and Resources.
Our recognition & rewards program, Kazoo, is a new mobile app that includes:
- Peer to Peer Recognition
- Organization Rewards
- Comments & High Fives for Posts
- Award Nomination
- & More
“Most of our staff is geographically dispersed between our 80 community homes, which can make it really challenging to ensure we’re providing the highest quality supportive care for our clients,” said Cindy Clark, President & CEO at Emmaus. “By partnering with Kazoo, we can now see in real-time the great work our team is doing on a day-to-day basis and the positive impact their work is having on our clients to help them live as independently as possible.”
