Social Recognition Builds Community
A smart use of gamification techniques - such as achievements - can bring everyone together to work towards a mutual goal that drives employee engagement to meet strategic goals.
While gamification is the latest buzzword, it can also be a powerful motivator for employees, especially when aligned with your mission, vision, and values as an example. It can be an amazing way for individual employees to mark their progress against company goals and see how their contribution matters.
Non-monetary social recognition programs provide short and long-term benefits. They deliver a win-win situation. Not only are they far less expensive than traditional monetary rewards programs, they are also proven to be more effective in engaging and motivating knowledge workers than traditional monetary incentives.
