SHARE THE LOVE THIS VALENTINE’S DAY!
While we continue to face the inability to have collective, in-person activities to celebrate, we have to come up with other ways to share the love! Utilizing the Recognition Wall and Spark tool to share positive feedback companywide is a great way to celebrate employees and show appreciation.
This week at Truvelop, we’re encouraging managers to share the love this Valentine’s Day by completing at least two Sparks. Whether it’s expressing excitement for upcoming projects or complimenting an employee’s success or achievements, sharing feedback and appreciation is beneficial for everyone.
Next week, we’ll get to see who completed the most Sparks!
TRUVELOP TIP: SHARE APPRECIATION THROUGH SPARK
There are so many ways for you to use Sparks on Truvelop to send feedback, seize a quick recognition opportunity, coach your direct reports, record one-on-one meetings, and track progress on goals—just to name a few. Employees want feedback from their managers, and the Spark feature is a great tool get the conversation started on Truvelop.

How To Begin Building Unforgettable Connections In The Workplace – Bonnie Hagemann
As a manager, let’s make sure you’re getting the most out of Truvelop’s performance management tool! You are already doing an incredible job and we so appreciate all of the amazing work you are doing. Let’s try to get some last evaluations in before the end of the month so that we all know where to focus our energy in March. Best Practices: continuous evaluation, using comments, and promoting team member development.
TRUVELOP TIP: BEST PRACTICES FOR GIVING FEEDBACK
- Create an Evaluation schedule. Regularly scheduled employee assessments will help you memorialize what your team member is doing well and not doing so well.
- Incident-based evaluation. When you see a team member doing something exceptional, memorialize it. This can be done through an Evaluation or Spark. I know Upper Chesapeake is going above and beyond, so recognizing this behavior can help keep everyone motivated and engaged.
- Using Comments will help you document the team member behaviors and actions that resulted in their score.
- Truvelop is designed to initiate manager and team member conversations. Make sure to follow the manager insights included with each score.
