Saying ‘Thank You’ in person, via email, by a hand-written note or at a company meeting is simple, but often the most effective form of employee recognition.
Be Specific & Timely
Ensure you recognise the actions or achievement close to when it happened, & be specific about what the recognition relates to.
Align with Values
Recognition of actions that align with a company’s core values helps embed values & create culture.
Rewards & Awards
Rewarding effort and actions can be financial & non-financial; such as an award for a milestone or goal, a workplace outing or lunch, extra time
off & gifts.
Employees recognizing each other for great work & actions broadens recognition. It can be delivered through formal online systems or an informal ‘shout out’ at a team meeting.
