Employee recognition is a tool that reinforces and rewards the most important outcomes people create for the workplace. When employees are recognized effectively, it reinforces the actions and behaviors you most want to see repeated.
Effective employee recognition is simple, immediate, and powerfully reinforcing. Recognition is most effective when it takes place on a regular basis and in a variety of different ways it can be given in many ways through a sincere thank you, giving praise, providing opportunity, or showing respect.
Ongoing, meaningful rewards and recognition provide an effective way of raising morale and encouraging higher levels of performance. Ensure you are recognizing your staff in a way that they see appropriate. Some employees may want to be recognized in front of everyone while others may want to be recognized behind closed doors.
