Staff motivation made simple


Recognition from colleagues feels great. With Access Applause, it’s easier than ever to commend and connect employees and like the best social media apps, everyone picks it up quickly.

Sending someone a ‘shout’ for something done well is so simple. What’s more, with ‘shouts’ linked to your company’s values, our software aligns people with your culture and encourages the right behaviours.

Start your recognition revolution

The Access Applause Hub has resources that will help you get started – and get things right for your organisation.

Speedy peer-to-peer appreciation

With our easy-to-use peer recognition software, anyone can send a social ‘shout’ to a co-worker for a good job or a great effort. Doing so provides an instant morale boost.

  • Employees can give a ‘shout’ anytime and anywhere, from desktops or mobile apps
  • Everyone can ‘like’ shouts in the interactive social feed, showing support and building togetherness
  • ‘Shouts’ recognise positive behaviours, helping strengthen organisational values and culture
