Employee Recognition & Productivity

Creating a positive workplace where employees look forward to work every day is a goal that every company should be working toward. Making your staff feel welcome and appreciated goes a long way toward increasing your results.

Employee engagement and productivity

There is a clear link between employee engagement and productivity.  Disconnected employees show up to work but are not motivated to excel. Without a sense of investment in their work, they are unengaged and possibly even uninterested.

Employees who feel a sense of control over their responsibilities have much more skin in the game and will work harder.  One example of this is in the Chocolate Chip Cookie Experiment.

When the manufacturing plant mentioned in Bryan Rushe’s Business 2 Community article empowered their employees to make small decisions affecting their work, productivity increased by 20%. While this may seem intuitive, providing employees with some control is a small gesture that can lead to significant impact.

Recognize Your Employees

A great way to improve employee engagement is to recognize employee accomplishments.  A full employee recognition program like Terryberry’s 360 Recognition Platform gives you options for when and how to recognize employees; from acknowledging career milestones to implementing a points-based awards system to provide on-the-spot recognition.

Being appreciated for a job well done is a simple way to make employees feel more invested in your company. Once you have implemented your recognition program, take time to decide what other areas you can impact. Could you relax the dress code? Can you improve the office environment?  Can you provide employees with flexible work options?

When your employees feel like a valued part of the organization, you will see a significant increase in their willingness to go above and beyond.
