There is nothing that motivates employees more than recognition. Any employee that gives their 100 percent at work would want to be recognized for it and be given justified rewards. Employees usually maintain a social circle at the workplace; they want everyone to know just how hard they have performed and how the company appreciates them.
Lately, many organizations have started celebrating National Employee Recognition Day, but we don’t think it matters. Rather than just celebrating your hard-working employees for one day, you should look to give them recognition across the calendar. Employee recognition knows no calendar, which is why it should be made an important part of your culture across the year.
Your company culture should be one where hard work is appreciated and the employees putting in that hard work get rewarded and recognized accordingly. If you want to foster decent company culture, you have to prioritize recognition at some point in time.
In this article, we mention some of the reason why recognition can be good for your organization and your company culture:
Recognized Employees Remain Happy
Not every employee takes their office workload home with them. However, almost all employees do take the feelings that they go through in the workplace home with them. This goes to prove that if you make your employees feel special, it will surely make them happy inside and outside the organization. Employees that are recognized for their efforts would serve as decent ambassadors outside as well and will help improve your reputation.
To make sure employees feel special, you have to show and tell them that you appreciate whatever efforts they are putting in. Tell them the kind of impact they are having on the workplace and how it translates into success for the organization as a whole.
Appreciative Leaders are Appreciated Leaders
All leaders and managers that appreciate employees are almost always appreciated back in return. If you want to build trust with your employees, you need to start appreciating them and should celebrate their hard work. The hard work that employees put in at work should never go to waste and, in fact, be celebrated.
Employees Stick Around
Employees would love to stick around a company with a culture of recognition. Whenever employees feel recognized, they want to stick around and give back to the company that appreciated their work. Companies with high turnovers are never able to gain momentum, which is why it is best for you to have loyal employees that stick around.
