Recognizing an employee for a job well done - is a great business practice!
According to recent studies, companies with a solid strategy to recognize team members enjoy stronger engagement, increased employee morale, better customer service, and lower turnover. Acknowledging achievement can have serious ROI – to the tune of 50% higher productivity and as much as 20% increase in business outcomes.
What is employee recognition?
Employee recognition is all about acknowledging the hard work and accomplishments of the individuals and teams within your organization. It’s really about creating an emotional connection with your employees and your company, all while supporting the work your employees do and staying authentic to your company’s values. Here are three ideas:
1. Company Items:
Got company swag? When you give away free company apparel and gifts you are not only making your employees happy, you are also promoting your business.
2. Traveling trophy:
To promote peer-to-peer recognition, have a special trophy created that employees can award one another for jobs well done. Think out of the box, it does not have to be a traditional trophy.
3. A Mug Full Of Treats:
Have any company-branded coffee cups lying around? Stuff one full of little snacks and sweets and leave it on an employee’s desk with a small thank-you card after a win!
