The Definition

Employee recognition is the acknowledgement of a job well done. It can be a spontaneous gesture of appreciation, made in an informal manner, or a formally structured programme to recognise those employees who have achieved a desired level of performance.
Employee recognition does not necessarily involve incentives or rewards; in fact, experts think recognition and rewards should not be lumped together in the same basket. Research has shown the importance of disassociating recognition from tangible rewards. The most important thing is to show genuine appreciation for the contribution an employee or team has made to the success of the organisation.

The Stage

Employee recognition can have a positive impact on everything from productivity and motivation, to engagement and retention. It is a crucial element, shared by many of the world’s most successful organisational cultures.
Recognition is not just something only executives should do; it should happen throughout the organisation. Research clearly shows that top-down recognition is not what makes companies thrive today – it is recognition by peers or, in other words, social recognition.
Employees respond to appreciation, expressed through recognition of their good work, because it confirms their work is valued. When employees and their work are valued, work satisfaction and productivity rise; this, in turn, motivates employees to maintain or improve their high standards. Despite the unquestioned benefits of employee recognition, organisations frequently execute their policies or programmes quite badly. In this light, many professional companies have now jumped on the bandwagon and offer employee recognition programmes and services.
