Culture Creation - Driving Employee Engagement Through Recognition
Develop Your Workforce
Engage Your People
Executive leadership is fighting an ongoing battle to attract and retain the best employees. The most successful corporations almost always attribute company culture and employee engagement levels as key variables in realizing success. While competitive pay and benefits are required to attract talent, it is the company's culture that impacts whether employees give their best.
Strategic recognition programs that align with company values are a proven enabler to building a positive company Culture. They engage employees in the pursuit of each Company's goals and objectives, create positive employee experiences, inspire employees with purpose, and celebrate their successes.
Unfortunately, most Companies are still operating on the basis that employee recognition programs should merely reward employees for their presence rather than their performance. Simply put, five-year anniversary programs have little to no impact on actual employee performance or tenure.
In fact, most companies are still confusing monetary incentives with proper recognition.
A properly designed, well-implemented, performance-based employee recognition program will increase employee engagement, impacting customer satisfaction, employee retention rates, customer loyalty and, ultimately, financial performance.
