2013 TRENDS IN RECOGNITION: UTILIZING RECOGNITION TO DRIVE EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT [28 January 2013]
[full-text, 19 pages]
In the past few years, as companies have grown wise to the needs of a changing workforce, recognition has become a buzzword for HR professionals
in-the-know. However, recognition is often discussed in a vacuum, with little thought to greater business impact. Unfortunately, recognition for
recognition’s sake isn’t the kind of the thing that will drive performance at your organization. Recognition strategy has to be done right in order to
drive overall Employee Success, which is the force behind any high-performing organization. If you’re going to recognize, you have to do it right.
So what kind of recognition is successful? The kind of recognition that reinforces desired behaviors in a way that is meaningful and timely,
because, quite simply: behaviors that are recognized get repeated. That’s why in the last five years we’ve seen both an emergence of
employee recognition technology and many companies investing in it. The companies making the leap are the smart, forward-thinking
organizations that are thinking ahead of the curve literally and figuratively; the most recent Gartner Hype-Cycle printed in 2012
shows that Social Employee Recognition is on the verge of mainstream adoption. The companies jumping on the trend early are the
ones that will win the war to acquire and retain great talent.
