Employee Recognition

What is employee recognition?

Employee recognition is the act of acknowledging and appreciating employees’ contributions and achievements within an organization. This can use monetary or non-monetary rewards and is most often done through awards, praise, or benefits such as time off or gift cards.

Employee recognition is important not only because it enforces good behavior, but because it contributes to an employee’s sense of job satisfaction and purpose. People who feel part of a wider team and mission are more likely to stay in a position for longer periods of time. In this way, employee recognition also boosts employee engagement — the emotional connection and commitment that employees have to their work and the company.

When creating an employee recognition program, organizations should focus on clearly communicating the criteria needed to get rewards and measuring the impact of different types of rewards. An HR solution such as Multiplier can help with this by providing a centralized location from which you can manage rewards.
