Values-based peer-to-peer recognition programs are more effective

According to a survey by the Society for Human Resource Management, 88 percent of organizations that tied employee recognition to core values said their programs helped instill and reinforce those values, compared to 57 percent among organizations that did not have that linkage.

Tagging Ideas

Company Values Tags

If your company has core values, Taco Tags can help promote and reinforce them. Tagging your tacos with your company values will help keep them top of mind, and you'll be able to see which ones your team values most.

You can quickly associate it with a core value when you give or get a taco. After a couple of months of using Taco Tags for core values, you'll be able to see if your team is good at recognizing each other for all your values or just a few. This is a great way to know if you're building the culture you set out to.

To learn more about the value of linking core values to appreciation see research from the Society for Human Resource Management.

Initiatives and Goals Tags

Many teams have a goal they're trying to achieve. Now you can ensure that your team's goal is kept front and center with Taco Tags.

Another application is for Wellness programs. For example, you can give wellness tacos and see how many your team gets per month to track progress or give out awards.

Fun Tags

Let's remember the tacos we sometimes give people to bring laughter to the office. You can now tag your tacos with things like #kitty, #gif_master, and #hilarious.

What HeyTaco customers are saying


"HeyTaco has been brilliant as it's such an easy (and fun) way to build culture and camaraderie within our team. I love the tool and so does the rest of the team!"


"HeyTaco allows our staff to publicly recognize and appreciate each other with virtual tacos. This not only fosters a sense of camaraderie and appreciation within the team but also gives them the opportunity to redeem their earned tacos for rewards, making it a valuable addition to our positive work culture."


"Going on 3+ years of HeyTaco and <3 what it does for our team with every ounce. The brilliance of the tacos for employees is its simple, drafts off real workflows, and is a great async way to teach/learn what good behavior is."


"HeyTaco allows me to notice the recognition team members are giving each other. Before, I had no way of knowing and wouldn't be able to recognize things myself. We're having a lot of fun with it."


"I don't know whose idea HeyTaco was, but it's sooooo cool. I love that Slack is blowing up with positivity. And I've gotten tacos for things I didn't realize were so important to certain people. And have loved having something I can give folks who go above and beyond."


"What I saw in the days, weeks, months and now years since we installed HeyTaco is incredible. I saw peers, coworkers on different teams, management, executives, everyone – all giving teammates shout outs for their awesome work. From highlighting out company values, helping out peers and going above and beyond, to generally being awesome humans. The channel turned into a showcase of the best of our team. Pure gratitude and appreciation of the work teammates were doing."


"It’s so easy to acknowledge co-workers this way that I’ve offered more praise in eight weeks than I likely did in eight years."
