Your employees need appreciation, they will respond to appreciation, especially when its expressed through recognition of their efforts because it confirms their work is valued. Recognition not only increases an individual’s sense of value, but it can benefit your organization in multiple ways such as:
Consistent recognition improves employee engagement which in turn boosts productivity. For if one’s work is to be acknowledged, praised, and rewarded it will in turn drive the employee to work harder to receive further employee recognition.
A valued employee is a happy one. Happy and fulfilled employees that are recognized by the organization they work for, feel a greater sense of purpose to work with the company, not just for them. If an employer treats their employees well, then the employees will want to do a good job in return.
Being rewarded for hard work shows the employee the worth of their work, and how it adds value to a company. This in turn, gives the employee a sense of purpose in their day to day work.
Employee recognition whether it would be peer-to-peer, manager-to-peer or vice versa is fantastic for team spirit, as it encourages employees to see the positive attributes in one another. Furthermore, it empowers people to show that they value one another’s opinions and work.
