Types of Employee
Today's years of service recognition programs have evolved, and are greatly improved from their beginnings during the industrial revolution times.
While standard service milestones, starting with the fifth year of employment, worked fine for a long time, times and employee demographics require changes to how and when we should recognize continued loyalty and service.
Many companies have expanded their Employee Service Recognition Programs to include the following:
- Early Service Recognition (before 5 years, typically 1 and 3 years)
- Standard Service Milestone Awards (starting at 5 years)
- Quarter Century Recognition (with a special award at 25 Years)
- Retirement Recognition
The following pages will explore each Service Recognition type, or segment in more detail. Review each of these service recognition components to see which fits your needs.
