Description
Keeping employees focused and motivated is an important part of a manager's job. Given the motivational impact of well-delivered recognition, there is value in knowing how to effectively acknowledge your employees. Acknowledgement itself can come in many different forms. This guide has been developed to help you understand how to leverage rewards and recognition as part of your broader efforts to manage and motivate your employees. It reviews different types of recognition – both monetary and non-monetary, as well as the considerations that should be reviewed when deciding what form of recognition best suits the circumstance you are seeking to acknowledge. This guide also addresses the role of the Human Resources team in developing tools and processes to be used across the organization to reward and recognize employees. The role of HR includes developing and managing formal compensation and recognition programs and providing coaching to managers on how best to motivate and recognize their employees.
