How and when do you recognize your employees? A formal ceremony is nice but the impact like all employee recognition is short lived in the minds of employees. Research has shown time and again the need for employee recognition to be more frequent for employees to acknowledge that their leader appreciates them. Recognize the great work and efforts of employees with frequency and sincerity. Do not wait to recognize an employee, doing so will lose meaning to the employee. Recognize in the moment when possible or as soon you can with sincerity.
This week I challenge leaders to focus on employee engagement 30 minutes a day for 1 month. We often focus on an annual survey once a year and the results and meaning slowly fades away. That survey, ritual, and or annual practice is meant to guide you into areas of focus for engagement do not let employee engagement survey results fade away! What engagement ideas will you put into practice?
