📆 Work Anniversary Celebrations

As remote work continues to be the norm, acknowledging and celebrating wins of any kind is crucial. That's why having a Slack work anniversary bot is an essential tool for team managers. Such bots, like the customizable ones that we offer, allow you to effortlessly recognize an employee's work anniversary through hand-written notes and stunning graphics sent straight to Slack.

Employee appreciation like this (anniversary milestones) can go a long way and is the perfect opportunity to celebrate a win. Other areas of opportunity also include employee recognition via the other big day each year for remote employees – their birthday (more below)!

🎂 Team Birthday Celebrations

Employee birthdays are perhaps the most exciting days of the week for remote teams. Office parties are a thing of the past, and remote teams are finding new, innovative ways to celebrate their members' special days. With customizable messages and the option to send a birthday gift, CultureBot makes it easy to celebrate these important occasions in a virtual setting.

With options to customize the message and the birthday gift to send to the employee on your remote team, CultureBot has your back for celebrating these days the right way and making employees feel acknowledged and recognized.

🎉 Custom Celebrations

Custom celebrations are now here! Use these to setup fun messages to send on holidays you'd like to celebrate with the team, awareness days or anything you can think of (like a company founding date anniversary)!

Awareness days are great for diversity and inclusion teams who are looking to spread support for minority and under-represented groups. Several of these awareness days come recommended inside of CultureBot already!

How the Birthday & Work Anniversary Bot Works

CultureBot automatically sends a celebratory message on the day of your employee's birthdays and work anniversaries. Birthdays and work annviersaries can be collected by the bot itself inside of Slack or imported via CSV spreadsheet.

Choose a Channel and Time to Post

Inside of the CultureBot admin page (easily found inside of your Slack org), you'll simply want to select a channel (or channels) to send the celebrations to (arrows on the right), as well as the time of day for them to send. Note: setup of work anniversaries is nearly identical to that of birthdays! For the next couple of steps, we'll be click on the buttons shown in the brace on the right.

Collect those Birthdays & Anniversaries!

After clicking on the 'collecting birthdays' or 'collecting anniversaries' buttons, you'll be shown the screen on the left. Here, you have the option to either upload your birthdays (or anniversaries) or have the bot do the collecting on your behalf. With either option, you'll still have the ability to edit/delete birthdays and anniversaries after the fact. The bot can also collect birthdays and anniversaries of new employees as soon as they're added to Slack!

Show Your Appreciation

Lastly, you can decide to edit the message that gets sent for the birthdays and work anniversaries, as well as (optionally) add a gift. If you add a gift, the bot will directly message the teammate with what they have won.

Sit Back and Watch the Appreciation Flow In!

Now that you're all setup, you'll be able to join in on the fun with your team everytime there is a birthday or work anniversary to celebrate. If more than one teammate has a birthday or work-aversary on the same day, the bot will intelligently group them together to avoid Slack spam!

How the Custom Celebrations Bot Works

CultureBot automatically sends the custom celebration message you've setup for the holiday or awareness day you're celebrating.
