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.

What is Total Recognition?

Do Your Employees Feel Appreciated?

I often think about the employee incentives that organizations give their employees to recognize their achievements: pizza parties, doughnuts for morning team meetings, custom branded giveaways, service awards, safety awards -- is your head spinning?

Do these incentives work? Industry research shows that an amazing 43% of employees do not feel recognized for the job that they perform. It's very obvious that formal, informal and day-to-day employee recognition is a challenge for companies. The time is now to get Total Recognition.

What is Total Recognition?

I'm SO glad you asked!

Total Recognition is an easy way to link all types of acknowledgments into one simple program. The online platform allows you to award points in lieu of running around town buying gifts that your employees may not appreciate. You can award points for many reasons such as Instant Award Recognition, Years of Service Awards, anniversaries, birthdays, employee well-being programs, sales incentives, and much more.

Want to include a small presentation of achievements and milestones? The Total Recognition platform supports it. What about a quick note? eCards are the perfect solution emerging into the recognition industry. A simple “thank you” or “job well done” goes a long way.

How to Control Your Employee Recognition Budget

I get asked the question, “Is it possible for you to give me a total cost analysis, down to the penny for our service award program?” all the time. Most are shocked when I am able to confidently answer them with a “YES, I can!”

The reason that organizations are shocked, is that most employee recognition companies use what is a called an “average pricing” model when designing service award programs. In my opinion, this “average pricing” model is antiquated and honestly, pretty deceptive.
