How to Consolidate Employee Recognition Programs

Do You Have It?

Does your company have meaningful and engaging employee recognition?

Recognition is being implemented by many organizations. A common problem, however, is having too many autonomous programs that are not producing the desired outcomes on employee engagement and achieving organizational goals. Examples of these autonomous programs include, but are not limited to:

  • Wellness

  • Attendance

  • Safety

  • Holiday

  • Employee of the month

While organizations are budgeting for recognition programs, they are rarely evaluating if the allocated funds are being well spent. When spent on a departmental basis, the results are not consistent across the organization. Some employees are feeling appreciated while others are receiving no recognition at all.

The Solution: Total Recognition

many-roads-mergingThe ambition of many organizations today is to consolidate these various autonomous employee recognition programs into one integrated and cost-effective platform. The solution is a Total Recognition Points Program.

Total Recognition Platform is a Software as a Service (SaaS) that allows you to award and track employee points for various feats. Through this cloud-based recognition platform, employees become more engaged and their awarded points become visible. This in turn results in a more meaningful recognition. 

Getting Started with Total Recognition

Executing Total Recognition is not complicated. Here is how to get started:

  • Assemble all department heads to identify all the current programs and budgets 
  • Determine any new company initiatives or goals that you desire to include in a Total Recognition Platform
  • Establish criteria for the ways that employees can earn recognition points and the point values for said achievements
  • Pinpoint organizational units and locations, along with any special goals they might want in the program
  • Identify how you will use Instant Award Recognition as well as who will be authorized to award on-the-spot award cards
  • Create communications for both the launch and ongoing employee communication regarding the new platform
  • Institute a review protocol to monitor the program success needed adjustments
