Israeli firm Eloops‘ employee engagement platform now integrates with Microsoft Teams. Eloops has been added at Microsoft AppSource. With Eloops employees get to earn company virtual currency through engaging with content and activities like quizzes, challenges and a Peer-2-Peer recognition program and then redeem for rewards of their choosing in their virtual and customized company store.
Its a big deal for a startup to get such recognition from a titan of the tech world like Microsoft.
Microsoft Teams is a proprietary business communication platform included in Microsoft 365 developed by Microsoft to assist with virtual business meetings or workforce collaborations from different locations. Teams is currently in demand due to millions of people forced to work from home these days with the Corona Virus shutdowns.
Eloops is an Israeli startup which offers companies a better way to engage their work forces. Based in Tel Aviv, Eloops was founded in 2017 by Idan Shem Tov, Naor David Melamed, Sharon Dayag and Tal Groder.
Eloops provides pre-made content templates, virtual activities, and gamification tools to help managers engage and align employees with culture, values, and goals at scale.
The company’s tag line is, “The employee engagement platform that works but doesn’t feel like work.”
Eloops helps HR professionals engage and align employees with company culture, values and goals at scale. The secret sauce behind the platform is endless pre-made content and virtual activities available in the Eloops marketplace that HRs can choose and customize based on short or long-term company needs. The content is designed to boost engagement, build company culture and improve overall employee experience.
Once Eloops has been added as an app to a Microsoft Teams account the user will be able to log into his Eloops account and and immediately be “in the loop!”
So what does Eloops do? It offers a SaaS employee engagement provider for enterprises. This is essential these days as more firms are decentralized with contributors located in multiple locations.
Also, the Covid-19 pandemic has forced millions to work from home. But working from home causes many problems for an organization such as impersonalization. Managers need to work with people in a face to face environment in order to maintain a personal connection and video conferencing is just not the same thing as being in the same room.
