Getting Recognition Right: Putting a Strategic Focus on Employee Recognition Practices and Programs
If you don’t know where you are going any old recognition program or practice will get you there. You need to know the direction you’re going in to make employee recognition successful. WorldatWork surveyed members on employee recognition trends and discovered only 48% of companies actually have a written recognition strategy. Our own research in the public sector found only 52% of managers saying their recognition strategies were really effective.
To produce the bottom-line results you want and create a culture of appreciation, you must become more strategic with employee recognition by designing a recognition strategy which does the following:
• Articulates your philosophy around recognition
• States your company’s purpose for rewards and recognition, and
• Spells out a clear plan to guide everything you do with recognition practices and programs.
By aligning recognition to your business goals and people strategies, managers will finally have a powerful tool with recognition to assist them in achieving these goals. In this way your recognition strategy can be owned by everyone and not just by Human Resources.
In this insightful presentation Roy Saunderson, President of the Recognition Management Institute and author of GIVING the Real Recognition Way, will outline the key factors and a process tool for making a recognition strategy, the essential steps for ease of implementation of a recognition plan, and best practice ideas to adopt in your organization.
