The bottom line impact of employee recognition {infographic}

employee recognitionThere is plenty of evidence to support the idea that employee engagement has a positive, quantifiable impact on individual and company performance, and that employee recognition is a key driver of engagement.  Yet, despite this, there is also evidence to suggest that 2 out of 3 people receive no recognition in a given year.

Thanks and praise fulfill the inherent human need to be appreciated, and with the growing influence of the Millennial generation in the workforce, recognition is no longer simply seen as a factor in motivation – it is an expectation.

When we also consider the quantifiable evidence showing a direct link between an engaged workforce and a company’s financial performance, it makes the case for a structured recognition program even more compelling.
