We get this question a lot. How Can I Raise Recognition Program Awareness While Fully Engaging My Employees?
It’s the ultimate goal of every person responsible for Employee Recognition. But, over the years I have found a very easy way to achieve both of those goals. Instant Award Recognition. What is Instant Award Recognition you might ask? It’s pretty simple. It is recognition given as close to the event or celebrated action as possible.
With today’s workforce, a recent Mercer study showed that 43% of people left their jobs for the lack of recognition. By adding Instant Award Recognition to your existing formal recognition program, employees don’t have to wait a year, or a month to be recognized for a job well done. They will be instantly rewarded by their leadership team, which in turn leads to a more engaged employee while raising job performance and satisfaction.
Instant Award Safety Recognition can include both tangible and intangible awards, and can be used in conjunction with an accrual based safety incentive program.
