We believe the best and most impactful way to utilize your recognition budget is to implement a strategy that encompasses base recognition, strategic recognition and performance-based recognition. Learn how to leverage each to maximize your employee recognition budget.
If you view employees as your company’s greatest asset, then your relationship with them needs to be handled carefully. That care can come in the form of many things from fair pay, an inclusive work culture and equitable career opportunities, as well as employee recognition and rewards. How you recognize and reward your workforce is the essence of your company’s employee value proposition, or EVP; it’s what you offer employees in exchange for their time, talent and commitment.
Commitment can be quantified in a measure called eNPS, or employee net promoter score. eNPS is derived from the question, “How likely are you to recommend this company (or program or initiative) to others?” to provide a basic understanding of an employee’s level of satisfaction and engagement. It’s the first step toward knowing if you’re providing the right employee experience – one they value and find motivating.
