Employee Appreciation - Give It Often & Out In The Open
In their popular study on the 10 C's of Employee Engagement, authors Gerard H. Seijts and Dan Crim in the Ivey Business Journal listed "Congratulate" near the top.
According to their study, "Surveys indicate that employees feel that they receive immediate feedback when their performance is poor, or below expectations, but that praise for strong performance is, unfortunately, less common. Exceptional leaders give recognition, and they do so a lot."
We couldn't agree more.The right social recognition program increases employee motivation and retention. What's more, when employee appreciation is made public it becomes a valuable tool for employee development and collaboration, while reinforcing corporate culture and values.
