Sometimes employers want to do something to show that they truly appreciate the employees but they tend to be worried about the cost especially if the number of employees is a large one. Appreciation does not need to be expensive. All you need to do is plan on something that your employees will appreciate and always remember you for. When thinking of corporate recognition it is important to consider what your employees like, individually if possible. This will make the recognition personalized and appreciated.
Ways to inexpensively show appreciation to employees
Praise the employee for work well done
Every time an employee performs, it is important to recognize their efforts with a simple thank you. Hearing this from their employer is sometimes enough to make an employee’s day and improving his productivity. It is important to show an employee that you have noticed the good he has done and you are appreciative.
Schedule employees days off
These are very important days in the life of an employee, even those that seem committed need time out sometimes. Offering this to them rather than waiting for them to request for it encourages employees to be productive because it shows you appreciate their effort and recognize they sometimes need to rest.
That surprise check always comes in handy to employees and they will always strive to perform even better in the hope that the bonus will get better the next time. The only challenge with this system is sometimes employees take it for granted and start expecting it every other year. When they do not get the bonus, their productivity drops and this eventually affects the performance of the business. Of course this means no bonuses and the cycle continues. Employers need to find alternate ways of showing Corporate recognition in addition to giving bonuses.
This is usually one of the most appreciated ways of showing recognition because the employees have something to remember your appreciation with. There are so many types of awards that you can even customize to suit each employee.
