Acknowledging the top contributors and public shoutouts/appreciation for great work done within the community is a step further towards building trust and fostering a culture of supporting each other.
- Follow a weekly ritual where you appreciate the top contributors of the community with a short mention of the great things they did.
- Over time, empower the most active members to share highlights from the week and thank members who helped others in some way
- Go beyond the channel, let the community share gratitude on your weekly check-ins or check-outs for a few minutes.
To make it more fun, here's a free gratitude bot we built for Slack: Samosabot helps the heroes of your Slack community get the recognition they deserve.
