The Weekly Dose of HR Technology – is a weekly series here at The Project to educate and inform everyone who stops by on a daily/weekly basis on some of the great HR and TA technologies that are on the market. None of the companies who I highlight are paying me for this promotion. There are so many really cool things going on in the tech space and I wanted to educate myself and share what I find. If you want to be on the Weekly Dose – just send me a note – firstname.lastname@example.org
Today, Disco launches an AI-based communication platform that enables workers to recognize fellow employees as they work by giving them kudos and micro-feedback on their tasks and efforts. Disco helps companies motivate the 68% of disengaged employees, while also rewarding those who are contributing to a positive company culture.
Designed to enable micro-feedback interactions throughout the normal course of daily business, Disco uses a combination of keywords, AI and natural language processing (NLP) to make it easy for employees to give and receive recognition.
Disco aggregates recognition data like task- and behavior-specific props, kudos, and thanks to consumable reports for company leaders. The data is then used to facilitate more meaningful and friendly communications, to drive high-visibility recognition, and to supplement performance reviews with peer-based micro-feedback. The outcome is that business leaders are better able to craft and
cultivate the company culture through a better understanding of their employees.
So, what’s is Disco really?
– Disco is an easy-to-use, AI-based, NLP conversational UX for Slack and Microsoft Teams, with more communications platforms coming soon.
