Recognise the efforts of your employees!
Employee recognition is the acknowledgement of an individual or team’s behaviour, effort and achievements that support the organisation’s goals and values.
Employees who feel valued often go beyond what is expected of them, often called ‘going the extra mile’. They will also be more productive and motivated, and are more likely to stay with the organisation.
For recognition to be effective, it must:
- Be given promptly, following the performance being recognised.
- Be sincere.
- Be specific. Tell them exactly what performance you are recognising.
- Be given face to face.
- Be proactive, and don’t wait till you see perfect performance before you give some recognition!
Recognition can be informal, such as a simple ‘thank you’, or more formal, such as meal vouchers, or extra annual leave.
Recognising and rewarding high performance
We can design a scheme to recognise high performance, and a package of benefits which your employees will value, and which will lead to higher levels of engagement and performance.
Informing and involving to gain commitment and engagement
We can design an employee engagement survey so you can identify actions that will make your people more engaged. We can also design a members’ survey, a customer survey and a Board appraisal process. All of these helps to identify opportunities to raise performance.
Cobalt HR can also give you access to its amazing My Choice Reward and Recognition scheme, which gives your people access to savings on their everyday shopping and reduced cost access to entertainment opportunities. You can also use these to recognise your people by, for example, a meal voucher for successful achievement of a project. Please ask for more information. Employees who feel engaged will go beyond what is expected of them, often called ‘going the extra mile’. As a result, they will be more productive and motivated towards achieving the organisation’s goals.
Appraising and developing for high performance
We can design an appraisal process that helps you to monitor performance and can identify training needs that will help your employees succeed.
