There’s a good chance that your company already has a recognition program in place. According to a SHRM (Society for Human Resources Management) Employee Recognition survey, 81% of companies reported having one (http://www.shrm.org/research/surveyfindings/articles/pages/shrm-globoforce-employee-recognition-2015.aspx). While it’s great that so many companies are recognizing how important recognition is, some of the top employee complaints (in the same survey!) are that these programs don’t have much impact and can be impersonal, showing that there’s still room for improvement. So the question we may want to ask ourselves is how do we create a recognition program that feels more authentic?
