Getting Started with Your Recognition Program

Recognition builds morale and increases retention.

It doesn't have to take a big investment of time, effort or money to recognize team member contributions in a meaningful way. Yet, the results could have a significant impact on your organization.

Everyone likes to be appreciated for the work they do; to know they are valued. When team members and their work are valued, their job satisfaction, work performance, motivation and commitment increase.

Recognition benefits your organization, too.

Having a recognition program offers benefits to your organization in a number of ways:

  • Increased productivity
  • strong teamwork
  • Increased morale
  • Increased commitment and loyalty to the organization
  • Increased retention
