The cost of employee recognition is very minimal in relation to the benefits that will be experienced. Employee recognition programs have been shown to increase productivity, employee loyalty, and increased safety.

The Many Types of Incentive

Like ice cream, there are many flavors of employee recognition programs. Being able to assess what program or programs are needed is essential to a company's success. Research shows that 79 percent of people who quit their jobs cite lack of appreciation as the main reason, and recent focus groups on appreciation found employees become disengaged when they don’t feel appreciated. Employee recognition programs, can keep employees motivated, safe, happy, and invested in your business.
