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.

3. COMMISSIONS

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.

4. FLEXIBILITY

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.

6. GIFTING

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.

10. CELEBRATIONS

Birthdays, new baby? Have it all covered with a policy to commemorate life moments that happen when people are working for you.

11. WELLNESS

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.

12. TRAINING

People want to know they’re in an environment of continuous learning, create a welcoming learning culture.

13. SOCIALS

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

Recognise the people who have been loyal and achieved milestone years with you.

Employee joy should not be overlooked, having happy ambassadors for your company can also result in walking positive testimonials! We believe it’s time you recognise Peero as your solution to provide a Human Workplace.
