Ideas for Employee Recognition

Remember that employee recognition is situational. Each individual has a preference for what he finds rewarding and how that recognition is most effective for him. One person may enjoy public recognition at a staff meeting; another prefers a private note in their personnel file. The best way to determine what an employee finds rewarding is to ask your employees both individually and as a group.

Use the myriad opportunities for employee recognition that are available to you. In organizations, people place too much emphasis on money as the only form of employee recognition. While salary, bonuses, and benefits are critical in your employee recognition and reward system—after all, most employees do work for money—think more broadly about your opportunities to provide employee recognition. Your employees will thank you and appreciate your appreciation.
