  • Higher turnovers affect morale and cost companies millions of dollars from employee investments, but well-appreciated employees stay longer in the organization.
  • Better Teamwork and Cohesiveness
  • “We are at our best when each other is at their best.” - Mark Welch, Northern Trust’s Chief Talent Officer.
  • Peers are the #1 influence on their colleagues, not monetary compensation or bonuses, and the reason behind 20% of all employees going the extra mile – 2014 TINYpulse Employee Engagement and Organizational Culture Report.

  • Random appreciation has less impact, and so recognition programs should align with company goals and values in order to reinforce behav- ior towards practices which really matter the most.

  • Focus On Peer to Peer recognition

  • Only 58% of employees think that their organizations have recognition programs, despite 75% of organizations having them in some form or the other – Bersin & Associates “The State of Employee Recognition in 2012”.
