What better way to show appreciation for your co-workers than to send them an emoji taco? Sure, there are probably better ways, but they might not be as cost-effective or simple as HeyTaco! With this Slack app, users send and receive the taco emoji to recognize one another’s hard work and dedication. It’s gamified with a leaderboard to show who gets and who gives the most tacos; the more tacos you send and receive, the more gifts and rewards you unlock.

With a 60-day free trial and priced at $2/user/month after that, it’s a fun and silly way to bring employees together and to recognize hard work on a tight budget.

 

Spoiler

Preserve office friendships and avoid creating a toxic work environment by implementing Spoiler into your Slack chats. The app lets you post a “spoiler alert message” that will hide posts discussing plot twists in movies and TV shows that others in your group may not have seen yet and lets them decide if they want to see the spoiler. You’ll never again risk destroying workplace harmony by assuming everyone is caught up on Game of Thrones.
