Employee Recognition…It’s THAT Important
If your company wants to enhance productivity and hold on to top talent, there is one key thing you absolutely must emphasize no matter what: employee recognition.
Recognizing employees for the work that they do should be number one on your organization’s to-do list for lots of different reasons. Here are a few of the key reasons why employee recognition is so important to your company’s continued success:
- Recognizing talented employees and top contributions helps you reduce turnover: When talented staff members do not feel appreciated or don’t think their contributions are being recognized, they are likely to begin looking elsewhere for work opportunities as they become frustrated with the lack of recognition for their efforts. Losing your most skilled staff members makes it harder for your organization to thrive both because they take their talent with them and because you cannot build institutional memory. It is also very costly to hire and train new staff members.
- Providing recognition to staff members helps you maintain high motivation levels: You want your team to be motivated and passionate about the work they perform. This is far more likely to happen if they feel that their contributions will be recognized. If you don’t recognize the efforts your staff puts forth, they’re likely to stop taking the initiative and do only the minimum.
- Providing praise and feedback inspires all workers to improve: When you provide recognition and praise, all staff members learn more about what you are looking for and what they need to do to be successful. This will help them to guide their conduct and the contributions they make so your team members will be more likely to perform in a way that meets or exceeds your expectations and helps your company to thrive.
