How to approve a Manager-declined Service Award

Managers are always given 30 days’ advance notice of upcoming Services Awards.   They are presented with a Service Award Action notification asking them to Process the Award and add a Congratulatory comment to be automatically posted on the Service Award date.

IF Line Manager Decline is Enabled in Service Award Settings, the Line Manager will also be given the ability to decline the Award from happening.

 

Good to know

  • Line Manager Decline must be set to Enabled in Service Award Settings for the Decline option to be available to the Line Manager
  • The Line Manager may decline individual upcoming Services Awards before they are Awarded by clicking the Service Award Action checkmark and following the instructions
  • If the Line Manager takes no action, the Service Award is automatically approved, regardless of Line Manager Decline switch status
  • All Admins will be notified when a Service Award is declined and will be provided a link back into Admin system where they can override the decline up until the Service Award date
  • The Line Manager will be notified if an Admin overrides a Service Award that they declined
  • Any Reward (Financial or Perk) configured with the Service Award cannot be detached - the entire Service Award needs to be Declined if you want to prevent Reward from happening
