Do You Engage Employee Through Meaningful Recognition?
Smart talent leaders and effective talent management strategies engage employees through meaningful recognition programs. Ever since that first gold star on a homework assignment, we all crave recognition for jobs well done. But the methods of how to engage employees through meaningful recognition have changed – the “gold star” is not enough to motivate your teams to higher levels of performance.
What Makes Employee Recognition Meaningful?
What type of employee recognition encourages greater on-the-job discretionary effort? What can help motivate employees to strive for excellence? It depends. It depends on the individual, on the team, on the company and on the unique corporate culture.
Three Critical Elements to Employee Recognition
There are some constants, however. Employee engagement training experts agree that there are three critical elements to employee recognition that are sought and valued.
In addition to recognizing performance, executives should also show appreciation of people’s inherent value by creating a culture of employee feedback to better connect with, appreciate, and support employees.
The Bottom Line
