Employee Engagement & Recognition

A culture of recognition will deliver innumerable benefits. Let’s design and implement a strategic program aligned with your business objectives together.

Unleash The Potential of Your People.

Engaging and retaining your people is more important than ever. This isn’t surprising. People want to feel celebrated for a job well done. Employee engagement creates effective organizations.

Employee engagement is the emotional and functional commitment employees have to their organization and their alignment with the overall goals of the company. The discretionary effort they are willing to expend is a byproduct of their engagement. Employees want to feel that their work has a purpose. That they are valued and respected within the organization. That they are secure and self-confident when performing the job.

Based on a wealth of research in this field, there is no question that recognition and reward programs enhance employee engagement and productivity. Incentive Research Foundation data shows that the presence of reward programs resulted in an average of 22% gain in performance (as compared to organizations offering no reward program).

Celebrate Contributions Big and Small

Employee engagement is a key driving factor to engagement, productivity, and company culture. Not to mention thrivabilitySM! People want to feel celebrated for their contributions. And for those contributions to be recognized and rewarded in meaningful ways. And what’s more, they deserve all that and then some.

From safety to teamwork, training, years of service, process improvement, and even goal achievement, our recognition solutions connect personal and organizational objectives. They drive business impact by increasing engagement and discretionary performance. Our award winning Excelevate program increased engagement by 300% in its first year of implementation. By outlining a program that reinforces the right behaviors and sustains them, we can help you reach your business goals while valuing your employees.

Companies who create a culture of recognition see measurable results from a better bottom-line to happier employees. In fact, Harvard Business Review states that on average, an effective recognition strategy helps create employees who become 30% more productive, three times more creative and 37% more successful sales people than those that are less engaged. So what are you waiting for?

Recognition Takes Many Forms

Peer-to-Peer – Employees that have a best friend at work reported that 50% feel a strong connection with their company and are 1.2 times more likely to say they have the opportunity to do what they do best every day. Peer-to-peer recognition builds camaraderie among employees and builds a foundation of trust.

Manager-to-Associate – Great managers are critical to cultivating great employees. A strategic communication and development plan between manager and associate will encourage higher productivity. Ultimately this leads to employee retention and customer satisfaction.

Nomination Awards – The heart, sweat and tears you put in, makes reaching a goal all the sweeter. Setting high but attainable standards for your workforce can encourage under-performers and turn them into marathon winners! And you can’t minimize the importance of ongoing communication to announce and sustain program drive.

Spot Awards – Going above and beyond for a teammate or a client, beating the deadline on a demanding project or generating innovative ideas to move the company forward. Spot awards are the perfect opportunity to acknowledge one-time achievements. The more recognition for these great individual acts, the more likely it is that they will snowball into a better everyday culture.

Service Awards – Keeping track of service anniversaries, retirements and other milestones when hundreds of employees are involved can be overwhelming. We automate this process for ease of execution while maintaining a personal touch. It also allows for social amplification of the awards across the organization to build loyalty.

Life Celebrations – Life outside of the office is as important as life inside the office. Employees go through major life changes that will impact how they function at work. We recognize key lifestyle celebrations like engagements, marriages, graduations or even the birth of a child.
