Why Is It Important?
If managers and employees send recognition one to three times each week, employee recognition becomes a natural part of company culture. It means employees are more likely to accept and respond to the recognition that they get. To be impactful and authentic, employee recognition should be given frequently and in the moment.

Creating a Culture of Recognition
Recognize the Everyday
Recognize Employees in Meetings
There is no single easy way to engage and motivate employees in the workplace. Carefully consider how you plan to acknowledge and appreciate employees’ workplace contributions and accomplishments. As important as planning and building an employee recognition program is, it’s equally important to ask for feedback and measure whether the program is supporting and driving operational goals and missions. Once you know what drives and motivates the overall organization for success, you can apply those same principles to individually motivate the entire workforce.
