Every employee enjoys being recognized for their contributions. When employees feel appreciated for their hard work, they remain engaged in their tasks, continue producing at top levels, and invest more time in moving the company forward. Here are six reasons why employee recognition matters.
Positive Work Environment
Employees who believe their ideas and efforts are appreciated feel happier about coming to work and contributing to the organization. As a result, employees are more fully engaged in their work, better collaborate on projects, and increase the cohesiveness of company culture.
Leaders can point out the actions, approaches, and accomplishments that most benefit the company so employees know which behaviors to repeat and which to modify. Therefore, employee recognition is a powerful form of constructive feedback.
When leaders and co-workers acknowledge an employee’s contributions to the company, the employee feels valued, appreciated, and respected. As a result, the employee builds rapport with leaders and co-workers. Building rapport helps create stronger work relationships. Because of those relationships, the employee becomes more involved in the organization and wants to continue helping the company move forward.
Greater Work Contributions
Employees work hard on cultivating their skills and experience to add more value to the company. As a result, recognition from leaders and co-workers shows appreciation and respect for employees’ efforts. Employees then feel motivated to work harder and provide even greater value to the organization.
Increased Employee Retention
The more an employee feels appreciated for their contributions, the more fulfilled they feel in their job. Employees stay more engaged in their work and remain loyal to the company. The longer an employee is retained, the less the company spends on hiring, training, and retention costs.
