December 7, 2022 By ansellgillian Off

Here is our top 5 reasons to recognize employees:

1) Years of Service

2) Above and Beyond Performance

With the exception perhaps of brand new employees who could use some recognition to reinforce mastering the basics of a new job, recognition is deserved when others go “above and beyond”. Consider these examples to help identify what you should recognize:

Extra: when someone spends extra time on a deliverable or project to ensure quality or bring added value. Or when someone takes on extra responsibility to help the team or the project.

Effort: when someone puts forth a level of personal effort beyond what is required or requested.

Exceptional: when someone makes an exceptional contribution, takes on an exceptional assignment, exhibits exceptional behavior that has positive impact or results in a great client experience.

Extraordinary: any out of the ordinary, above and beyond contribution that helped you personally, helped the team, the project, the organization, or the client/customer.

3) Peer to Peer Recognition

4) Retirement

5) Sales Performance

As you look for these types of recognition opportunities, remember to deliver recognition effectively and try to recognize others consistently for greatest impact.
