Define the roles of administrators, executives and managers in recognition programs that work.
Explore the employee perspective of what makes recognition meaningful.
Discover methods for training managers to provide recognition that works.
Recent research suggests that excellent employee recognition can lead to stronger business results. Better recognition means higher productivity, yet few managers provide the kind of recognition that inspires top performance.
Managers are critical to recognition efforts. Employees say that recognition that’s meaningful most often comes from their managers. Unfortunately most managers lack the skill and understanding required to recognize successfully. Effective managers, those that understand the value of your program and use it frequently and appropriately, will produce the results you (and your employees) want.
When you understand the roles that administrators, executives, and (most importantly) managers play in your recognition programs you will be equipped to provide the recognition that employees crave.
