The power of recognition

When your staff members are engaged, they perform at higher levels. They also strive to go above and beyond, and are more inclined to focus on intrinsic factors such as personal growth and long-term goals. Staff members who are engaged also feel strong emotional bonds to the organization and are more likely to recommend the organization to others.

And that’s just the beginning. Engaged employees love what they are doing and look forward to coming to work. They are passionate about what they do, feel that they are an important part of the big picture, and that their energy and innovation help make the organization successful.

Whether it’s cultivating strong employee-manager relationships, building a culture of recognition or simply motivating performance, here are the top five employee recognition initiatives for increasing employee engagement. View the infographic.
