Our people are the heart and soul of everything we do.
So naturally we want to make their work life the best possible. What better way to spread positivity than to acknowledge a good deed with a hug?
Not just any hug, but a Wunderhug that brings positive feedback to the person hugged and also makes their paycheck bigger! We have created our very own hug system to recognise and reward those who go above and beyond to help others in everyday Wunder life.
Everyone at Wunder has five hugs to give weekly for whatever reason. With each hug, they write a positive comment which is anonymously delivered to the recipient. Helping others, giving advice and support, doing your job well and otherwise being “huggable” is even better when your actions are noted!
Wunderhugs is genuinely the best feedback system we’ve seen. The system obeys no rank or organisation chart, but really gives recognition for actions worth hugging. When given the chance, people say the most amazing things to each other that are otherwise said way too rarely.
We also love our Wunderhugs so much that we are helping our customers and partners to also adopt the idea.
