When employees start working, they usually have so much gusto because they want to perform and grow in their careers. Unfortunately, it reaches a point when they are not in the mood to wake up to go to work, and when they do, they barely get anything done. Not because they do not want to, but because they are going through the burn out phase in their careers. They barely have the energy or focus to concentrate on work. Some companies use team building exercises to restore harmony in the work environment. However, corporate recognition is one of the best ways to boost employee productivity.
Reasons why you should show recognition for your employees’ efforts
Sometimes employees feel they are not appreciated. Appreciation is a normal art of human behavior and people respond positively when their efforts are appreciated. If your employees feel their efforts are not in vain, they will work even harder because they know you appreciate their efforts. This kind of recognition will even propel other employees who are lagging behind to try their best to get the same kind of appreciation their colleague got.
Improved relations between employers and employees
Sometimes a break in this link can be detrimental to the performance of the company. If employees feel their employers do not even notice their existence except the money in the bank, they tend to form hostile opinions which can sometimes translate into action. An employer who wants to build a good open relationship with his employees can start by recognizing the employees’ efforts and their contribution to the success of the business.
A happy employee automatically translates to a happy customer. This is because a happy motivated employee serves a customer with a smile and is very helpful to the needs of a customer. This is especially so for employees who have received Corporate recognition and those who are aiming for the same when the next recognition event comes up. This healthy competition between employees results in satisfied customers who in turn contribute to the financial success of the business.
It is very important for employers to keep their employees happy and it sometimes takes recognition and appreciation to get this done.
