People crave recognition from their peers. It’s human nature – we’re satisfied when people notice our hard work but it’s brutally frustrating when our contributions go unnoticed.
In fact, experts agree that lack of employee appreciation is the number one reason why Americans leave their jobs.
Yes, financial incentives are important and we can agree that all the recognition in the world can’t make up for a poorly paying job.
However, research on employee recognition shows that companies that know how to show appreciation for the individuals on their team experience increased employee engagement, lower turnover rates and higher performance.
So, how can your company do a better job of recognizing employees? There are several amazing employee recognition ideas available here but let’s start with these three simple ideas to help you get started: Continue reading this entry →
