Find the right rewards and recognition platform for your business. This page is the result of ongoing research by our team of HR Tech experts

Each month over 32,000 companies use our research to buy HR Tech. We spend thousands of hours researching the best HR and recruiting software so you don’t have to, and rely heavily on practitioners to help us recommend the right software.  We may earn a small fee if you click on vendor links on this page.
We love Reward Gateway's multiple offerings in a single platform. Keeping recognition, rewards, and surveys within each other's reach is just plain smart.
We love Kudos because they've built something into their product that is ultra-rare but should be ubiquitous: consulting. Seems obvious, right? An actual person with an objective perspective can be a game changer.
WorkTango combines continuous performance management, employee recognition, rewards, and engagement surveys into one powerful platform to help improve employee experience and, by extension, company culture.
Mo runs on the power of peer-to-peer recognition. We think Mo is ahead of its time by prioritizing shared moments over material rewards.
Workstars has built a highly flexible tool, and that isn’t easy. We love that they recognize how well-tuned employee engagement software needs to be and take on the extra work to make it happen.
Cooleaf hits the sweet spot for leveraging employee sentiment into motivation and engagement. This can be tricky -- many well-intentioned initiatives harm employee sentiment, but customer reports indicate Coolleaf is doing it right.
