Here at Peero, we believe in driving to succeed and often speak about unity as the currency of tomorrow. Recognition and gratitude go a long way, a report from Globoforce in relation to building a more Human Workplace, mentions a staggering 86% of employees felt they could trust managers who had shown them recognition and this also made them feel more proud to work for their employer.
Thank you’s are great, although often employees are seeking more, look no further, here are 15 ways you can show recognition your teams:
1. EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT SURVEYS
Allow people to share their opinions and drive forward with technology, Peero will provide your employees a place to share what’s really on their mind.
2. EMPLOYEE REWARDS
Consider having a variety of rewards such as health plans or enhanced compensated time off for paternity or maternity leave. The greater the variety, the better.
When a business is performing well, employees will feel valued by receiving a monetary reward. It’s important to ensure there is parity with how such bonuses are awarded.
Offering autonomy and flexibility is a great way to build trust with employees.
5. PUBLIC RECOGNITION
Take the time to acknowledge employees during team meetings, there’s a great wave of gratitude when people feel seen.
Simple yet impactful, consider sending gifts to team members, especially if some employees are not based in the HQ.
7. SOCIAL MEDIA
The power of social media lives on, use platforms like LinkedIn to acknowledge the great work of individuals for online communities to see.
8. PEER REWARDS
Often rewards come from Leadership teams, and whilst they may not be working with the more junior team members on a daily basis, peer rewards allow colleagues to acknowledge the great work of their friends.
9. TIME OFF
Burnout can happen to anyone at any time, having preventative measures for this ensures people can take time off with support from colleagues.
Birthdays, new baby? Have it all covered with a policy to commemorate life moments that happen when people are working for you.
Respect people and respect their boundaries. Create a psychologically safe environment by incorporating an Employee Assistance Programme which people can call whenever they wish to without fear of judgment.
People want to know they’re in an environment of continuous learning, create a welcoming learning culture.
Company socials such as New Year celebrations are a great way to bring teams together and create memories.
14. RECOGNISE PASSIONS
People love to be recognised for the hobbies they have outside of work, this makes them feel much more than just an ‘employee’.
15. LOYALTY AWARDS
