WHY?
Because according to a 2014 Harvard Business
Review study, the most impactful driver of
employee engagement is recognition.
READ THEIR REPORT
And we were eager to find out what’s
happening today within UK organisations and
share it with the business and HR community.
HERE’S WHAT THEY TOLD US...
Q: Does your organisation have a formal
employee recognition programme?
A:
Yes, every employee
can participate
NoYes, only managers & leaders
can recognise employees
62% 26%12%
It’s alarming that 26% of companies don’t have a
formal programme in place, and another 12%
don’t enable employees to participate.
KEY TAKEAWAY:
In order to create a culture of recognition,
the programme must be inclusive and allow
social recognition across all employees.
On a positive note, nearly three quarters
of companies have some focus on recognition.
However, we also asked...
74%

the organisation currently have?

KEY TAKEAWAY:
With today's modern workforce and velocity of
business, recognition in the moment - not only
on an annual basis - is imperative.
Employees work in
days and hours…
...not in
months or years.
Q: On average, how often are employees
recognised in your organisation?
A:
66% of employees are either NEVER recognised, or if
they are it is rarely, annually or quarterly.
Only 15% of employees are recognised weekly or daily.

DID YOU KNOW?
According to Gallup’s Q12 engagement questions,
recognising employees weekly has a positive
impact on employee engagement.
On the bright side, over 50% of companies are using
recognition for other important elements such as
for key behaviours, values and performance.
KEY TAKEAWAY:
The foundation for a successful recognition
programme is defining the values and behaviours
your company wants to see more of and the
performance strategies that must be brought
to life by your employees.
Q: Does your employee recognition programme
include rewards that have monetary value?
A:
46% of recognition programmes always or often
include a monetary reward, while 25% of programmes
never or rarely have monetary value attached to
recognition in the form of rewards.

a recognised HR tech category according to Gartner.
It's where recognition strategies are going.
Social recognition engages EVERY employee.

behaviours that drive results for the organisation.

Benefits also include a single source for communicating,
administering and tracking everything.
