Recognise This! – Old-school approaches to employee recognition do not deliver the business results companies need.
Today on Compensation Café, I shared additional insight into the 2013 WorldatWork “Trends In Employee Recognition Report.” In this space last week, I discussed the overarching theme of companies moving to recognition programmes that drive desired behaviours. In Compensation Café, I dig more deeply into four more themes running through the research:
- Theme 1: Companies are moving away from traditional approaches to recognition to new forms that drive business results.
- Theme 2: Strategy is still lacking in many programmes, limiting the real results that can be achieved.
- Theme 3: Global recognition programmes are making strides, but too many companies still treat international employees as second-class citizens.
- Theme 4: Just as senior management buys into the importance of strategic recognition, training efforts for managers are falling.
