10 ways you can show your employees your appreciation

According to an O.C Tanner study, more #recognition is the number one way to encourage workers to produce better work.

In another study led by #SurveyMonkey, workers reported that they were 63% less likely to look for new work if they were “always” or “usually” recognized for their work.

These are just some of the benefits of building an employee recognition program at your company.

Employee recognition programs also help promote a happier workplace culture, retain top talent, encourage more engagement/loyalty, and decrease stress and absenteeism.

Employees want to feel valued and appreciated.

They want to be seen for the efforts they put in both by their leaders and peers.

Companies can truly thrive when they create an environment where everyone feels valued for their contributions and rewarded accordingly.

Recognition is transformative and inspiring, and it drives motivation.

Here are 10 ways you can show your employees your appreciation this week:

🎉 1. Say “thank you” more often

🎉 2. Have a company virtual recognition board or feed where team leaders and peers can congratulate each other

🎉 3. Monthly award certificates: come up with a few creative company awards and metrics for achieving each

🎉 4. Celebrate milestones and work anniversaries

🎉 5. Cater a company lunch or take everyone out once a month (or more if budget allows!)

🎉 6. Ask each employee how they like to be recognized at their next check-in meeting or send out a survey with options for them to choose

🎉 7. Have a cake celebration on employee birthdays, or even better, give them the day off!

🎉 8. A gift card to a favorite store or SPA

🎉 9. Grant an early finish or late start to the day

🎉 10. Organize team bonding experiences
