The HiveRequest a Demo
A social software solution for peer-to-peer recognition.
Recognition is a currency that has extraordinary value to your knowledge workers. It is most powerful when it is timely, and public. The Hive delivers social recognition in real-time, resulting in more engaged and productive employees. Recognition is shared with everyone, creating a collaborative environment that builds on the knowledge and achievement within your organization.
The Hive is a non-monetary system of social recognition that changes how you motivate and retain employees, how your company celebrates success, and how you reinforce your corporate culture and values.
The Hive → For Your Company
The Hive transforms recognition into a business asset. It changes how your organization
can achieve a unique strategic competitive advantage, one driven by your culture, your people,
and their stories – not by an expensive rewards program.
The Hive → For Managers
The Hive helps managers be better managers. The peer-to-peer nature allows employee
contributions that occur outside of the direct view of managers to be captured and shared across
The Hive → For Employees
The Hive builds personal legacy. It creates a record of an employee’s accomplishments,
and raises their profile. This results in greater day-to-day satisfaction and commitment.
The Hive Product Highlights and Features.
- Increase retention and motivation. When employees believe their efforts matter they are less
likely to leave and more likely to invest greater effort into their job each day.
- Enhance collaboration and culture. Celebrate success to reinforce desired behaviors. Foster
greater cooperation and knowledge sharing.
The Hive encourages involvement and introduces ‘Gamification‘ with Achievements. Recognizing a
colleague, commenting on the stories of others, liking or sharing a recognition story, are all encouraged
behaviours and lead to unlocking Achievements. The more you participate the more Achievements you
unlock and the more you add to your personal legacy within the company.
Awards, in the form of illustrated badges, serve as an at-a-glance testimonial. This builds an employee’s personal legacy within the organization. It tells their story, and this social recognition increases employee engagement.
Daily Digest emails sent to managers keep them up to date on the contributions of their employees, so that the successes that occur outside of the direct view of managers are captured and shared. This helps managers be better managers. Between the contributions they see first hand in the workplace, combined with the recognition and achievement information provided by The Hive, it is easy for managers to act on an opportunity to give an Award.
The Hive can transform the culture of an organization, while also driving superior customer experiences. Win, win.
Recognizing the tenure of your employees is a time honored practice. The Hive lets you integrate into your existing Service Award program to deliver social and public Service Award recognition online. Leverage the infrastructure of your Intranet to bring attention to your loyal employees for their years of service and solicit kudos from their peers.
The Hive Reporting and Analytics.
Today, managers are overloaded. The Hive helps them be better managers of their direct reports by offloading some of the task of recognition to the rest of the company. Timely reports keep the mangers in the loop as to who is being recognized for what.
Senior management can see who the great contributors to the company are overall and even if a department or new acquisition is too isolated. For the first time you can see how your company really works. Prepare to be surprised.

Pfizer, the world’s leading biopharmaceutical company, works to apply science and its global resources to improve health and well-being at every stage of life. The company’s diversified health care portfolio includes human and animal biologic and small molecule medicines and vaccines, as well as nutritional products and many of the world’s best-known consumer products.
With 100,000 employees worldwide, communications at Pfizer Inc is practically an industry of its own. In 2008 a communications scan discovered more than 400 information-based intranet sites along with 10,000 team-specific intranet sites. To control costs and deliver more consistent messaging, online communications began consolidating these sites into a single platform, known as the PfizerWorld “super site,” running on Microsoft® SharePoint® technology. The communications strategy underlying the PfizerWorld super site platform has three pillars — Connect, Listen and Educate.
As the communications team moved to roll out editorial content for the new PfizerWorld site, they still felt that they were missing a key piece of the strategic “puzzle.” They needed something that would draw people to the site and more fully engage them in its content.
“We were looking for something that would help us engage our colleagues, build more interest in the site, and work successfully with the site’s overall design,” says Robert Libbey, Senior Director of Worldwide Colleague Communications and Corporate Social Media.
TemboSocial’s Poll was chosen because it offered integration via a SharePoint® web part, could easily be configured to match the “look and feel” of the PfizerWorld site, and was robust enough to handle traffic that exceeds many news media outlets. The polling feature, which the team named the PfizerWorld Fast Poll, was given the signature spot in the upper right corner of PfizerWorld’s home page.
Pfizer uses the PfizerWorld Fast Poll to generate interest in specific topics, industry issues and initiatives within the company. The poll questions range from “test your knowledge” type quizzes to polls that are more in the style of a survey.
“It’s been a highly effective tool for promoting internal programs,” says Nicholas Patrick, Senior Manager, Corporate Communications. “We also use it as a tool for creating a deeper connection between colleagues and the company’s purpose by utilizing such topics as health and wellness, disease states and companion animal care, to name a few. The poll is a popular part of our site. Since we began publishing it weekly in 2009, we’ve seen consistently high levels of engagement.”
At Pfizer, high levels of engagement are only part of the story. TemboSocial’s Poll plays an instrumental role in supporting the site’s Three Pillars: Connect, Listen and Educate.
“The poll plays a big part in how we listen to our colleagues,” says Libbey. “It’s proven to be a good indicator of people’s interest levels, precisely because it is such a popular piece.”
Pfizer’s communications team takes the results of each week’s Poll and studies them to learn what topics their colleagues are interested in. They take this feedback and use it to tailor their editorial calendar in upcoming months.
“We had 60 million site hits and more than 5 million article views in the past year,” Libbey continues. “The most savvy communicators inside our organization will ask us right off the bat if we can do a poll for them. They recognize the value the Poll contributes to the mix.”
