A successful recognition program does more than introduce an app that inspires participation for a moment then fades into obscurity. Here are the key factors for creating and sustaining a recognition program that will influence greatness in your culture over the long haul.

Key Factors

Executive Support

Make sure you have support all the way up the ladder. Studies have shown that executive buy-in of the program and management support are the greatest enablers of successful recognition programs.

Make It Genuine

Recognition programs at their very core are there to help employees feel appreciated. Without genuine appreciation behind the program it will seem shallow and lack direction.

Employee Buy-in

Implement an internal marketing campaign encouraging employees to become greatness champions by cheering one another’s daily victories. This will ignite excitement about the platform and encourage giving recognition.

The Right Fit

A one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work with recognition programs. Studies have shown that different industries require different award systems. Make sure your recognition program is suited for your company and employees.

Review Often

Ensure you are surveying and reviewing the program annually. This helps your program to stay cost-effective, ensure the right individuals are getting recognized, and most importantly, allows you to innovate and change the landscape of your program to appeal to the ever-evolving workforce.
