Recognition is a vital part of a successful communications plan and must fit your organisation's culture. How it’s given to an employee, however, is often more important than what is given.
- Carefully choose who you recognise and for what. The value of recognition is diminished if given too frequently to too many.
- Inspire with a visit, memo or letter of thanks from senior management (sent within two weeks of the event).
- Publicly recognise with an award presentation.
- Invite employees to talk about the achievements at seminars and other public platforms.
