✅ Personalize Recognition:

Tailor recognition practices to individual preferences, considering unique strengths, skills, achievements, preferences, and cultural sensitivities.

Establish a regular cadence for recognizing employee contributions to maintain a positive and motivating workplace culture. Coach managers to have quarterly one-on-ones to appreciate employees and check in with them. Don’t forget remote employees.

✅ Peer-to-Peer Recognition: 

Foster a culture of appreciation among colleagues by encouraging peer-to-peer recognition through platforms like employee shout-outs or recognition boards.
Example: Establish a virtual “Kudos Corner” where team members can publicly praise each other for exceptional support, fostering a positive peer-to-peer culture.

✅ Define Up-Level Criteria:

Help your employees know what steps they can take to be recognized and grow within the organization by clearly outlining evaluation criteria.
Criteria Example: Successfully and proactively assume leadership roles on departmental or team projects and go above and beyond in achieving goals.
