The importance of employee
recognition cannot be understated

is all about improving employee morale and boosting the general attitude and happiness of your employees. High employee morale is essential to improved productivity, retention, and even the success of your company.

In this continuation of the Manager's Guide to Service Awards, this section addresses the Value of this unique and important type of recognition.

Service Award Programs provide great opportunities for management to honor experienced employees for their knowledge and contributions, as well as to show appreciation for their dedicated and loyal service.  Honoring and recognizing employees in front of their peers, helps them feel even more appreciated.

Key Points:

When an organization focuses on employee morale, most will see a dramatic improvement in productivity. Then, as long as management continues to work on creating a culture of employee recognition, productivity should steadily improve. 
A Service Recognition Program should be the foundation of every company's comprehensive recognition strategy.

Employees Want Recognition! Actually, we ALL want it. We want it from our parents, from our teachers, from our friends, and from our work.

According to a Work study published by Randstad, over 75% of employees said feeling valued was more important than a list of other options. Employees want and need to feel appreciated and be recognized for their achievements and service.
