Reasons to Recognize
Recognition award programs help foster engagement, increase productivity, and reduce tension in the workplace. Leading a team can often be a challenging task let alone ensuring all staff are engaged, but recognition awards can do just that.
We’ve put together the 7 Spectacular Reasons to Celebrate Employee Achievements!
1. Increase productivity
When employees are recognized for great work they tend to repeat the behavior for repeated recognition, thus increasing productivity.
2. Happy Workplace
Happy employees make a happy workplace. When employers recognize an employees’ work ethic and appreciate the small things and the big achievements, the employee feels a sense of pride, not just in themselves, but in also working for that business, creating the magic that leads to a happy workplace.
3. Empowered Employees
Recognizing an employee’s efforts and appreciating their abilities builds an essential bond between the manager and the employee. This bond is paramount to building a healthy and positive environment, where employees feel comfortable speaking to their managers, and empowered in their work.
4. Grow Great Team Members
Recognition award programs not only benefit employees, but management as well. These programs help to identify workplace stars and allows management to move them up through the ranks.
Employee recognition is one of the fastest paths to employee retention and loyalty. A simple thank you, or a celebration of an employee’s achievement is all it takes – and in turn this will benefit your company’s retention rates, lowering your training and recruitment costs.
6. Engage your Team
Recognition award programs make employees happier, and also engages them in their work. We work harder to achieve a goal when an incentive is in place as an award.
