“REFFIND’s Employee Recognition solution, WooBoard is now part of the culture here at THE ICONIC and is definitely helping to improve engagement, staff motivation and collaboration at all levels of the organisation.”
THE ICONIC is Australia’s leading online fashion retailer. Showcasing more than 700 local and international brands, and over 20,000 products, THE ICONIC focuses on innovation through a dynamic mobile-first website and mobile app. It is widely recognised for its excellent customer service.
Founded in 2011, THE ICONIC has grown from 50 employees to more than 300 across two locations in Sydney.
THE ICONIC needed to further drive employee satisfaction, engagement and motivation, workplace enjoyment and social interaction at all levels within the organisation.
Kirsteen Tolentino, HR generalist, THE ICONIC, said, “Employee recognition has always been a key priority at THE ICONIC and we just needed a way to make recognition and engagement more public, visible, and accessible to everyone in the company. We also wanted to facilitate collaboration and communication across different locations and departments.”
Currently, more than 90% of THE ICONIC’s workforce is under 35, with a very innovative, technology-driven company culture. Any solution the company adopted needed to appeal to that demographic to ensure strong uptake among staff.
THE ICONIC adopted REFFIND’s employee recognition platform, WooBoard to drive existing internal employee recognition initiatives.
Kirsteen Tolentino said, “WooBoard is a simple yet effective tool for our staff to easily communicate with and recognise each other. It also lets us promote and monitor engagement, driving deeper engagement across the entire company.”
The social media style of the platform appealed to the staff’s demographic, assisting with its uptake among employees.
Kirsteen Tolentino said, “Today more than 75% of our employees are actively using WooBoard to recognise their peers and celebrate our successes. Staff across the organisation can easily see who is being recognised and why. It’s a positive feedback loop; you see all the wonderful things people are doing and it inspires more of the same.
“Because the platform is social, employees log-in daily. It’s become a forum for discussion and new ideas, which helps drive our engagement programs. For managers, WooBoard offers monthly activity reports where we can see how employees are engaging and which staff members are excelling in their roles. For new recruits, WooBoard makes it easy to get a sense of the company culture and helps them get to know their colleagues better.
“WooBoard is now part of the culture here at THE ICONIC and is definitely helping to improve engagement, staff motivation and collaboration at all levels of the organisation.”
