Capture the fire in their bellies

People are hungry for appreciation. It’s a basic human need that drives us to excel in what we do. Businesses need to wake up to understand the need to harness this hunger for recognition in every employee in order to capture the best efforts. Back in school, teachers rewarded students with shiny star stickers which they would bring back home and proudly display. It pushed them to work hard to get more stickers.

In a recent Gallup workplace survey, employees were asked to recall who gave them their most meaningful and memorable recognition. The data revealed the most memorable recognition comes most often from an employee’s manager (28%), followed by a high-level leader or CEO (24%), the manager’s manager (12%), a customer (10%) and peers (9%). Worth mentioning, 17% cited “other” as the source of their most memorable recognition. Source: http://www.gallup.com/businessjournal/193238/employee-recognition-low-cost-high-impact.aspx

Organizations that give regular thanks to their employees far out perform those that don’t. According to Forbes magazine, modern, re-engineered recognition programs can have a huge impact on business performance. Companies that scored in the top 20% for building a “recognition-rich culture” actually had 31% lower voluntary turnover rates. Most CEO’s would pay millions of dollars to reduce voluntary turnover (this is when good people leave on their own). It turns out that a well-designed recognition program can achieve this result.

Lack of recognition equals to lack of encouragement equals to (may sound hard) non-acknowledgement of one’s very existence in the organization. Hence, it’s extremely important to boost morale and keep the momentum high by capturing the fire in their bellies! Recognition has the innate ability to create a positive energy which must be encashed by the business to multiply growth and productivity.
