Employee Appreciation & Productive Recognition
What Is Employee Appreciation
Timely, formal or informal, expressed and appreciative acknowledgment of a person’s or team’s efforts above and beyond the call of duty or
reasonable expectations in the course of their professional endeavors, or behaviors and results which uphold the company’s goals and values.
Does Employee Appreciation Even Matter?
“The number-one reason most Americans leave their jobs is that they don’t feel appreciated.” - Gallup, Tom Rath and Donald Clifton “How

Companies with strategic recognition programs report 71% and higher engagement levels among workers, as compared to companies with-

The Power of Employee Appreciation. 5 Best Practices in Employee Recognition.

  • 1. Employee Appreciation & Productive Recognition
  • 2. What Is Employee Appreciation
  • 3. Timely, formal or informal, expressed and appreciative acknowledgment of a person’s or team’s efforts above and beyond the call of duty or reasonable expectations in the course of their professional endeavors, or behaviors and results which uphold the company’s goals and values.
  • 5. “The number-one reason most Americans leave their jobs is that they don’t feel appreciated.” - Gallup, Tom Rath and Donald Clifton “How Full Is Your Bucket? Positive Strategies for Work and Life”.
  • 6. Companies with strategic recognition programs report 71% and higher engagement levels among workers, as compared to companies with- out the same – 2012 SHRM/Globoforce Employee Recognition Survey.
  • 7. Disengaged workers cost the economy $300B+ every year – Gallup, 2010.
  • 8. Benefits Of Employee Appreciation
  • 9. 60% of Best-in-Class organizations stated that employee recognition is extremely valuable in driving individual performance – Aberdeen Group, “The Power of Employee Recognition”, 2013.
  • 10. 70% of North American workers hold timely recognition to be “effective” or “very effective” - surveyed by staffing firm OfficeTeam.
  • 11. Motivated workers invest more effort and enthusiasm in their work, since they feel they have a purpose – an important part to play in the company’s goals.
  • 14. Companies spending 1% or more of payroll on recognition, 85% see a positive impact on engagement – SHRM/Globoforce Employee Recog- nition Survey, 2012.
  • 15. Employee appreciation creates an environment where employees want to work and to continue making a difference on the company and on their colleagues.
  • 17. Organizations scoring in top 20% for building appreciation-rich cultures have 31% lower voluntary turnover than every other enterprise – Bersin & Associates “The State of Employee Recognition in 2012”.
  • 18. Higher turnovers affect morale and cost companies millions of dollars from employee investments, but well-appreciated employees stay longer in the organization.
  • 19. Better Teamwork and Cohesiveness
  • 20. “We are at our best when each other is at their best.” - Mark Welch, Northern Trust’s Chief Talent Officer.
  • 21. Peers are the #1 influence on their colleagues, not monetary compensation or bonuses, and the reason behind 20% of all employees going the extra mile – 2014 TINYpulse Employee Engagement and Organizational Culture Report.
