Show Them You Appreciate their efforts. Sure they would like a raise of course, but many times an award, plaque or something they can show off proudly goes much much further.

Employee recognition is not just a nice thing to do for your employee’s once in awhile. Praise and recognize your star performers.

The Gallup Organization surveyed some 4 million workers on the topics of recognition and praise, and they delivered startling results. Along with the 65% of people who reported receiving no recognition on the job last year, an estimated 22 million workers are presently "actively disengaged," or extremely negative in their workplace.

The number-one reason most Americans leave their jobs is that they don't feel appreciated.

So when it comes to recognizing people for accomplishments, whenever possible, try to go beyond a simple pat on the back. Not only will this have more meaning for the recipient, but it also serves to reinforce the positive action you are rewarding.

Recognition and praise leads to:

  • Increased individual productivity.
  • Better safety records/fewer accidents on the job.
  • Employees stay with the organization longer.
  • Higher loyalty and satisfaction scores from customers.

Employee rewards and recognition help both the employer and the employee. If you have not yet done so make this the year you plan a recognition program that will "WOW" your employees and then watch to see the positive outcome this will have on their attitudes and overall work performance.

The structure of a recognition program is limited only by your imagination.

Some of your recognition budget (however large or small) should certainly go toward spotlighting role model performances and role model employees. This makes them feel good, encouraging them to stay on board and keep trying hard.
