I was delighted to be joined on the A Better HR Business show by Aaron Rubens, Co-Founder and CEO at Kudoboard, an appreciation tool teams in more than 10,000 organizations are using for special occasions, shout-outs, and everything in between.
Among other things, Kudoboard is often used as a replacement for the card that’s passed around and signed on birthdays, work anniversaries, farewells, and more!
Aaron is passionate about building great products for mission-driven organizations. He is also an entrepreneur, product manager, and former educator. He attended Harvard Business School and Tulane University.
His early career was focused on education, having taught high school math at Alta Vista Charter School in Kansas City, and joining a highly selective national service corps, Teach for America. During this time, he designed and taught the entrepreneurship class and conceived the idea of Kudoboard: at year-end, he’d have students write their name and what they liked about each other on notes and pass it to classmates.
In a wide-ranging discussion, Aaron and I talked about:
- Why Aaron started Kudoboard and whom does it help
- Kudoboard is a workplace appreciation solution for special occasions, events, and shout-outs.
- Building a cohesive culture and keeping people connected in a remote environment
- Kudoboard is a platform to bring people together and reinforce organizational values
- The challenges of keeping users engaged
- And much more.
