When’s the last time you took notice of a job well done by an employee? If you noticed, did you reach out—even with a simple thank you?
Turns out that not doing so may be detrimental to your employees’ feel-good vibes about your company. Only about one-third of employees feel passionate about their jobs—and if they don’t feel passionate they probably don’t feel engaged, which may mean they aren’t giving you their best.
However, employee recognition programs are one way to instantly boost that engagement and in turn boost your company—especially over your competitors. There are a number of ways to do this—most of which involve very little or no cost to you, especially when measured against return on investment. For example—a birthday day off costs you very little, but makes an employee feel special, and gives them an additional benefit you can tout to others.
