Employee Recognition Programs that Work:

Designed to help your organization develop a high-performing culture of recognition.

Drive Desired Behaviors – Reward for Performance

What motivates your employees to excel?  Do they strive to outperform the competition in every task they perform?  Do they recognize their own strengths and capitalize on them?  Do they know you value their contribution at every level?  Your employees are partners in success – both yours and theirs. An employee recognition program, a points based recognition program, or employee incentive program can play a key factor in that partnership.

Studies show employee engagement and recognition go hand in hand. When employees know they are valued and appreciated, engagement soars – motivating staff to excel, and driving desired behaviors. And when employees perform, companies succeed. At it’s basic form, an employee recognition program is foundation to driving employee engagement and all the benefits derived from doing so.

The Impact of Low Employee Engagement

Low employee engagement costs American companies $370 billion dollars annually according to Gallup. Low employee engagement and complacency is costing your company. Disengenged employees have higher increases in the following:


How much are disengaged employees costing you? A lot! Gallup found that, on average, 17.2% of an organization’s workforce is actively disengaged and those disengaged employees cost their organization 34% of their salary, or in other words, $3,400 for every $10,000 in salary. To illustrate, lets look at those metrics for a 3,000 employee company.

Average Annual Salary in U.S. – $47,000

Disengagement Costs – 34% of $47,000 = $15,980 per employee

Number of Disengage Employees: 516 (3,000 x 17.2%)

Total Cost of Disengaged Employees: 516 x $15,980 = $8,245,680 PER YEAR!

Great relationships between staff, management, and peers is critical to an engaged workforce. Recognition and incentives may start from the top, but it has to trickle down to every employee, no matter the level. When employees are encouraged to do their best and rewarded for their efforts by management and their peers, ownership, and workplace pride result.

A well-designed employee recognition program is the perfect vehicle to increase employee recognition and engagement.  It builds solid relationships through the use of peer-to-peer and manager-to-employee recognition.  It opens opportunities for acknowledgment and appreciation of excellence from the smallest task to the largest accomplishment.
