Nov 11, 2014

A well-designed, comprehensive employee recognition system that provides flexibility, accountability and transparency can have a powerful and long-lasting impact throughout the company.


Build and Employee Recognition Program


By crafting an enterprise-wide employee recognition system, instead of running many ad-hoc programs, your organization can significantly improve employee engagement and impact its bottom line.

Social Recognition System Stakeholder Benefits

Social recognition systems help all levels of the organization achieve their goals:

  • Executive Leadership. An ongoing system drives corporate objectives, builds an enterprise-wide culture of appreciation and validates investment expenses.
  • Business Units. Systems can provide autonomy and flexibility to accommodate geographical and departmental objectives, serve as a flexible management tool and offer data on a more granular level.

  • Human Resources. A system provides a consistent recognition experience for all employees, drives targeted behaviors that help a company achieve its desired culture and drives employee participation.

  • Employees. With a comprehensive system, employees have one resource for all initiatives; they benefit from the ability to accrue award earnings and are better engaged and satisfied.

  • Supply Chain. Auditors, compliance and legal are better supported through budget control processes, vendor consolidation and savings in time and dollars by having to interact with only one system for all employee initiatives.
