Who are your positive influencers? How can you use your employee recognition program to tap into their strengths and galvanize the entire organization?
Since you can’t be everywhere at once, use social peer recognition to spread values virally. Encourage employees to look beyond their own cubicles and add real-life CultureStories to your virtual recognition wall, stories that feature colleagues who bring your core values into play everyday. Everyone gets inspired by people they can relate to, peers who embody the critical behaviors that fuel performance.
Employee recognition that connects your strategy, culture and the essential part employees play in achieving success better supports your business than frequent but vague kudos for a job well done.
Properly recognized and rewarded, employees morph into loyal fans with a shared sense of purpose that boosts their level of engagement and validates your strategy.
As employees get recognized for their contribution, empower them to share the spotlight with teammates who supported the efforts that got them there.
Even with thousands of employees, your company feels like a close-knit community working towards a common goal and achieving success, as a team. When employees develop a powerful sense of ownership and shared identity, your success becomes their success.
Set your own rules and guidelines based on the specific program objectives. With the proper permissions, employees and managers can elect to award points from their budget – or not, as appropriate.
Simply put, we believe that budget cuts and monetary constraints should never get in the way of recognizing your culture-builders.
