Not sure how to build your own thank you culture? We’ve built a step-by-step checklist for a successful reward and recognition program to get you started:
How to prioritize employee recognition in 2021
In our recent survey, we asked 1,510 employees from companies across the UK, U.S. and Australia about their biggest stressors. Connecting and engaging employees is more important than ever, with 51% of these employees looking to move jobs for a variety of reasons, including:
- citing feelings of underappreciation and a lack of recognition (30%)
- a lack of support (26%)
- insufficient connection to the company (23%)
In an ever-changing environment, your people are looking to their organizations for stability, connections and appreciation. And the reality is that if they aren’t finding these things, they’re likely to leave your organization.
Not sure where to start? The good news is you’ve already done step one!
No matter where you are on your reward and recognition journey, it’s always a good time to pause, reflect and get ready for what’s ahead. It’s more important than ever to shine a spotlight on hard work and create a culture of appreciation to better connect, support and recognize your people.
