Ask yourself a few key questions as you look at your own organization. Are you doing recognition thoughtfully and deliberately, or is it just something you flippantly discuss once every six months? Do you really care if your employees are in the “right seat on the bus” and have opportunities for growth? Are you giving intentional and purposeful recognition that deepens workplace relationships?
Rewarding and recognizing employees is something that a lot of companies don’t know what to do about or where to start—let alone how to maintain an ongoing model. Which is understandable since HR has so much to do. However, reward and recognition programs yield such high results that it only makes sense to make it a top priority.
