A Recognition and Reward program can have significant impact on overall employee engagement in an organisation. From boosting morale to lowering staff turnover, recognition and reward programs offer companies a motivational tool that can be beneficial to the employer as well as the employee.
An effective employee recognition scheme should be relevant, fair and transparent for all employees to be motivated. Clear criteria outlining the purpose, audience, channel and measures will help employers manage and deliver the program easily and sustainably.
