The Wonders of a Virtual Handshake

presence in social media can create a very engaged employee baseAs people use social media more and more in their daily interactions with clients, vendors and co-workers, the use online recognition programs has skyrocketed to a whopping 66% of 86% of all U.S. organizations that have a recognition program in place according to WorldatWork‘s 2011 “Trends in Employee Recognition Survey.”

Knowing your workforce is key as “e-recognition also fits certain environments better than others” states Kathleen Koster of Employee Benefits News. If your company has several satellite offices or an employee base peppered about the globe, online recognition is the easiest way to keep engagement high. Social media websites such as Facebook, Twitter and Google+ are accessible at any time and are already somewhat familiar to your staff. A simple tweet in thanks for a job well done from your superior goes a long way in the face of recognition. In addition, it is easier for co-workers on the same level to publicly acknowledge each other.

The most engaged workforces tend to use a combination of traditional award programs and online. A virtual pat on the back is no substitute for a physical reward for 20 years of service!

Measuring Morale and Motivating Employees

No doubt, motivated employees perform stronger and produce more which leads to a healthier bottom line for everyone at a business. But, how do you measure whether or not you have motivated employees?  And how do you know what “exactly” motivates a particular individual? According to an article posted at EHow Money, the simplest way to learn where your employees are at with their morale and what will help get them super motivated, is to just ask! Survey employees at least yearly to find out what will make them work harder. It is important to ask because there are clearly different motivators for different generations.  Besides being motivated by different things, individuals will prefer to receive feedback in varying ways. Again, asking questions is always the best policy to learn what your employees prefer. No matter what method employees prefer to receive feedback, they universally need to know where they are at towards their work goals and be recognized for their contributions. Employee recognition programs offer an opportunity for employers to reward a job well done and let employees know they are on target. Taking into consideration that different generations and people are motivated in many diverse ways, having an employee choice recognition program can be the answer you seek to motivate your employees. Royal Recognition, Inc. can work with you to create a rewards program that will be the perfect fit for your company and your employees. Recognizing individuals for a job well done will reward you with loyal employees who feel valued and contribute their best to the organization.
