How to recognise effort in different ways.
Introduce a staff recognition programme that matches your company’s culture and values to motivate employees. There are many creative ways you can acknowledge the hard work and accomplishments of your employees. It could be as simple as praising an exceptional member of staff on social media or on the company website. You could experiment with paid leave incentives, such as offering extra days off or, as LA-based cruise firm Omelet does, give employees free time during the working day to devote to projects they’re passionate about. If you’re not sure what to do, a good tip is to follow the advice of Laura Hughes, HR manager at tech firm GeoCaching, who suggests asking employees how they’d like to be recognised.
