Are you effectively recognising your people?

Reward and Recognition

82% of people are happier when they are recognised at work so it’s no wonder that it’s a top initiative when it comes to a brands employee value proposition (EVP).

Recognising your employees could be as extravagant as an awards ceremony but it can also be as simple as a ‘thank you’. It sounds straight forward but changing a company culture takes time, collaboration and commitment but it’s worth it because effective recognition strategies can lead to a happier work culture which can lead to increased productivity and retention. How?

Wellbeing: Encourage better mental health by using recognition to show you value people. Feeling valued is a basic human need, it drives purpose and belonging.

Retention: Companies with formal recognition programmes have 31%* less voluntary turnover than organisations that don’t (*Deloitte).

Motivation: When people are appreciated, motivation increases. Praise boosts moral, giving people confidence to step out of their comfort zone, driving performance.

Inclusion: Well-designed recognition solutions help to build and sustain a culture that is inclusive, diverse, connected, and empowered.

Sending employees a clear message that what they’re doing matters is essential because it reinforces the value that they bring and encourages employees to set and reach goals.
