Maintaining a thriving work environment can be a challenge. Here’s a solution
Great leaders and managers have learned that strategic recognition implemented consistently throughout an organization is instrumental in reducing turnover, increasing productivity, and creating an excellent work environment.
People repeatedly do what they are praised and rewarded for. Therefore, it is important for an organization to identify the desired behaviours that directly align with corporate culture, values, and goals and convey these desired behaviours to managers and their employees.
For recognition to be effective, employees have to be able to connect the dots between the recognition received and the organization’s desired behaviours. For example, “innovation” may be a value in an organization.
