Why Give Recognition?
  • Recognition for a job well done is a primary motivator for people.
  • Recognition shows employees that they are appreciated and that their contributions count.
  • Recognition increases employee self-esteem which improves morale and leads to a more positive workplace overall, increasing productivity and building commitment to the organization.
  • Recognition improves interaction between supervisors and staff and among staff when they recognize each other’s notable achievements.
  • Recognition nurtures pride and enthusiasm.
  • It’s the right thing to do! Everybody, all of us want and need to be recognized when they’ve worked hard and done an extra special job.
