Employee Appreciation Day!

Employees are the company’s greatest assets. Recognition and appreciation are the key motivational factors in a workplace.   National Employee Appreciation Day was observed annually in first Friday of March and it is created in such a way to grab the attention of all employers towards employee recognition. As the saying goes “Rome was not built in a day”, the same way employee engagement can’t be built in a day.

A Glassdoor  survey on employee appreciation reveals the fact that 53% of employees report that they would stay longer as they get enough appreciation from their boss  and almost 81% of employees say that they are motivated to work harder when their boss show appreciation on their work.  Employee engaged organizations are known to grow three times faster than their competitors.

“A small appreciation goes a long way!”


Traditional Approach:

Gartner on its research on “Rethinking performance management” says the effectiveness of traditional performance management processes is questionable and satisfaction levels are low. Hence surprising an employee by recognizing once in a year in the name of annual performance appraisal does not increase retention and often it ends up in demotivation.

New Approach:

Fundamentally, it needs a different approach towards appreciating and recognizing employees. Organizations need to undertake the agile approach of appreciating the work done by the employees then and there on the spot. Frequent feedbacks and appreciations from the managers to their peers will increase the level of trust, motivation and dedication. This fosters a collaborative atmosphere as well as reduces attrition. Employee appreciation is a pill that every employee needs to stay energized.

To achieve this organization started using Performance Management solution to implement and automate the above discussed process towards Employee Engagement.
