Employees like to be recognized for their hard work and dedication for a company. If an employee feels valued in the work place, they are not only a more pleasant employee but also a more productive one. That is why it is so important to have staff recognition programs in place that keep morale and productive high. In this article, learn all you need to know about the importance of employees recognizing.

What Is Staff Recognition?

Before implementing a recognition program, you need to understand what exactly staff recognition means. Generally, it is the acknowledgment of an individual or team’s contribution and effort towards the company’s goals. How you choose to recognize your employees varies depending on your workplace and your corporate culture. If you are not sure what would make your employees happy, you can directly ask them. The important thing for a staff recognition program to be effective is that your team appreciates this recognition and the way it is done.

Why is Staff Recognition So Important?

There are so many benefits to having a staff recognition program in place, including:

  • Showing employees you value their work;
  • Boosting company morale;
  • Providing a sense of belonging;
  • Increases employee retention;
  • Increased employee motivation and production.

Guidelines for Recognition

There are some guidelines that companies should keep in mind when creating a staff recognition program.  These guidelines help to make the recognition as beneficial as possible. 

  • Employees can be recognized individually and as part of a team;
