What is employee recognition?

Employee recognition is when managers show appreciation to staff for their hard work. When employees show their coworkers appreciation, this is known as peer-to-peer recognition.

Companies can create an employee recognition program to embed appreciation and employee feedback into the company culture. This program should be led by the HR team and implemented throughout the entire company.

Employee recognition software can provide support with functionality that allows colleagues to easily share appreciation in an engaging way.

What are the benefits of employee recognition?

Rewarding employees for hard work is an effective way to improve employee engagement and encourage employees to go the extra mile. Even something as simple as a thank you message can go a long way – it reinforces positive habits, shows that managers and coworkers care, and improves the recipient’s mood. These all contribute to a better employee experience.

Studies have shown that employee recognition programs can increase employee retention, improve engagement, and boost productivity. For these reasons, recognition should be part of every company’s core values.

How do I implement an employee recognition program?

Everyone within a company can contribute to employee recognition. Ideally, human resources will lead the employee recognition program and implement the necessary recognition tools.

Recognition solutions encourage employees to appreciate their coworkers and help cultivate a positive workplace culture.

HR can also lead several other employee recognition initiatives. For example, they could set up a rewards program for team members who refer new employees, for long-serving employees, or for top performers.

Incentives and employee rewards require some investment on the company’s behalf, but this soon pays off as other employees are motivated to go the extra mile.

What is social recognition?

Social recognition, also known as peer-to-peer recognition, is when employees acknowledge their coworkers for their outstanding work, completed projects, or other positive moments. Celebrating these events motivates employees and creates a more inclusive workplace.

While managers and team leaders should also give employees praise where it is due, social recognition is just as important. Making peer-to-peer recognition a regular part of the working week strengthens relationships between team members.

How do I send a Cheer using flair?

In flair, a Cheer is a short message of appreciation you can send to your colleagues. You can attach a pre-made image to your text or record your own personal video message.

You can send a Cheers to recognize colleagues for great work, thank them for helping you out, congratulate them on a special occasion, or just to show your appreciation for a team mate.

Cheers are stored in the Engagement section of the Employee Hub. When you send a Cheer to a coworker, they will receive a notification and see a popup in their Employee Hub. If the Cheer is public, it will also appear in the Feed in the Employee Hub. When you send a Cheer to a coworker, they will receive a notification and see a popup in their Employee Hub.
