Making the Connection Between Employee Recognition and Engagement

Having an engaged company won’t only lead to a happier workplace, it is also more likely that an engaged culture will foster innovation, creativity, and productivity and eventually lead to happier clients.

Engagement doesn’t have to be a difficult or costly thing to attain either. According to a study by Aberdeen Group, employee recognition was found to be the biggest determinate for engagement in top companies across various industries.

With employee recognition becoming such a trend, it’s also come a long way from simply “getting that raise”. Recognition can be anything from sending a thank you note to employees who have been putting in extra hours, an employee of the month program, a longer lunch after finishing a tough project or even simple communication between staff and upper management.

There are virtually endless ways to show employees that you care about them, so since you’re such a great leader yourself, get out there and let your staff know they’re just as amazing!
