Assembly helps small and midsized companies to acknowledge employees so they can build a strong culture and reduce employee churn through peer to peer recognition.

What's Inside

Assembly Review

Assembly's employee recognition and rewards software enables HR teams to build stronger cultures with more engaged employees. Specifically, employees use Assembly to recognize their co-workers for accomplishments large and small.

Recognition aligns with companies values, and is broadcast to the organization. Employees who are recognized typically are also given points by their peers which they can then turn into various rewards.

Their platform sees around 90% of employees use it on a monthly basis which is evidence that there is a self sustaining feedback loop of employees being recognized, and giving recognition.

Lastly, Assembly offers a free tier for smaller companies, or small teams within an organization that want to give this a try.
