Celebrate Your Employees With High Impact Recognition

 

Portrait Of Business Team In Office Celebrating

Last year I had the opportunity to help a client combine their annual holiday lunch appreciation event with a management development program on the power of recognition.  The nature of this client’s busy business prevented them from being able to get their managers together very often for a training.  This event was an ideal way to combine a management development program with their annual holiday event. The business owner enhanced the motivation of her managers by providing them with recognition and the managers learned strategies for providing high impact recognition to their employees.

Whether you give your employees gifts, cards, bonuses, or have a public forum for letting your employees know how much you appreciate them, make sure each and every employee is aware of the specific ways they contribute to the success of your organization.  And keep in mind that for recognition to be effective, it should be given throughout the year and tied to individual and team performance goals.

When given correctly, the recognition you give will enhance motivation, improve productivity and increase the retention of your top talent.
