Boosting Productivity, Morale and Profits with an Employee Recognition Program

212°F can design an Employee Recognition Program for your company that helps you create a culture of hard work, teamwork and competitiveness in line with your company values, which can have a signicant eect on your company’s bottom line. Employee Recognition Programs can increase motivation, engagement and satisfaction, improve sta retention and motivate your employees to behave in a desirable way. This is done by simply recognising and celebrating the contributions they make to ‘the team’ and your business.

How Employee Recognition Programs Work

Overall, an Employee Recognition Program comes down to three basic steps:

  1. You need to recognise the effort of employees who exhibit desirable behaviour.
  2. You need to reward the results of individuals and team.
  3. You need to celebrate careers.

In short, developing an Employee Recognition Program is much like offering a weekly prize to the most valuable players on a sporting team, to encourage the rest of the team to follow the lead of the ‘star’ team members. You need to reward behaviours and values that you want all of your employees to exhibit. Recognising when your employees achieve these goals reinforces the behaviour in the employee, and causes other employees to recognise the importance of the behaviour. Employees that feel rewarded, respected and recognised feel good about the job they do and the company they work for. This drives and shapes behaviour in your workplace, which ultimately leads to higher productivity.

The Different Types of Employee Recognition Programs

There are three main types of Employee Recognition Programs. The program you choose will depend upon your employees, and what is more likely to motivate them to behave in the desired way.

A peer-to-peer program:
  • Encourages employees to nominate their peers for excellent performance.
  • Increases the bonds between individuals, teams and departments.
  • Allows you to use a visible leader-board to create a competitive environment that reinforces the behaviour.
  • Celebrates success and recognises top achievers, giving all employees a standard to live up to.
Performance-based programs are more likely to be overseen by managers. They:
  • Reward employees who make a difference.
  • Inspire others to contribute more to the company, so that they too will be rewarded.
  • Celebrate the achievements of ‘winners’, reinforcing the positive behaviour.
This task may be overseen by the employee in charge of calendars and employee records. By celebrating career anniversaries, you:
  • Reinforce an employee’s value to the company.
  • Build an employee’s commitment to the company, and inspire peers to achieve their own reward for a long career with the company.
  • Connect leaders and senior members with every member of their team by holding them up as someone to be respected and recognised.
How Employee Recognition Programs can Benefit Your Business

Recognising and rewarding your employees for their behaviour and achievements can help you achieve the following:

You can retain a greater number of employees, which means you have to spend less money on advertising to hire new people and less time training new staff.
You can increase team work and morale, which – some studies show – is a bigger influence on employees deciding where to work than money.
An increase of productivity, engagement and responsibility among your employees – the more your workers feel like a valuable part of the team, the harder they will work for you.
