Celebrating Milestones with a Slack Bot

For example, CelebrationsBot integrates directly with your Slack workspace. It prompts you to enter key dates and then delivers customized messages right in Slack when the day arrives.
The bot can be set up in just minutes, and there's no need to remember each date. Employees get a warm notification that shows you care - without the manager needing to do anything on the actual day!
Little efforts like these help boost morale and engagement across an entire team. 85% of employees said they'd work harder if their efforts were better recognized, so bots like CelebrationsBot can really improve productivity.
