Tips for Effective Recognition

Rewarding system in an organisation plays an important role to motivate the employees for the better performance. Recognition has to be very perfect to avoid employee issues which can divide the workforce.

We need to establish criteria for what performance or contribution constitutes rewardable behavior or actions.

  • All employees must be eligible for the recognition.

  • The recognition must supply the employer and employee with specific information about what behaviors or actions are being rewarded and recognized.

  • Anyone who then performs at the level or standard stated in the criteria receives the reward.

  • The recognition should occur as close to the performance of the actions as possible, so the recognition reinforces behavior the employer wants to encourage.

  • You don't want to design a process in which managers "select" the people to receive recognition. This type of process will be viewed forever as "favoritism" or talked about as "it's your turn to get recognized this month." This is why processes that single out an individual, such as "Employee of the Month," are rarely effective.
