10 Steps To a Successful Recognition Program

You have challenges and goals. Maybe you want to reinforce good behavior or instill it. Maybe you need to increase sales, acquire new accounts or revive inactive ones. Whatever your challenge, LinJen can help you find unique solutions. How? By engaging your employees and customers, communicating to them and motivating their efforts we can accomplish those goals.

Here are 10 Steps To a Successful Recognition Program:
  1. Program Objective: The program should be consistent with the company's values, principles, and objectives for improving productivity and performance.
  2. Program Theme: Recognition is fun. Theme ideas are endless!
  3. Award Period: Whatever your time period, keep the program visible with regular updates and benchmarks, even mid-period awards.
  4. Recognition Categories: Clear and definitive boundaries must be set, with criteria above and beyond what is normally expected from employees.
  5. Eligible Participants: All employees related to that department, goal, etc. must be eligible.
  6. Program Qualifications: A recognition program must provide equal treatment for equal accomplishments.
  7. Presentation: Recognition and rewards must be timely to the achievement. Acknowledge actions as soon as possible. Generally, public commendation is better than private.
  8. Budget: When performance goals are met, the increased sales, profit, or cost savings to the company will far exceed the cost of a recognition program.
  9. Awards: Recognition is not compensation! Studies repeatedly show that employees rank recognition for accomplishments higher than money.
  10. Cost Analysis: A well-structured recognition program virtually pays for itself due to increased profits, cost savings, and employee morale that results from meeting program goals.

  • They are immediately identifiable by peers, thus reinforcing their value as builders of self-esteem and motivation.
  • They cannot be purchased outside the organization, therefore, they must be earned.
  • They are designed to be highly personalized; not only with the recipient's name, but the name of the program and details of the accomplishment.
