One of the more enjoyable responsibilities for the HR manager to do is conveying thankfulness to the employees in your corporation. Do not let this important task be overlooked in your company, as giving recognition often takes a back seat to the demands of daily work. Taking the time to sincerely recognize a job well done has a lot of positive outcomes. Considering that everyone likes to feel appreciated and valued; by recognizing that your employee’s hard labors have not gone unnoticed, you may inspire other employees to work just as hard.
When choosing employees to recognize, there are certain duties-related, measurable work effectiveness indicators that can be your guide. Do not forget employees whose positive attitudes encourage teamwork, those who will support co-workers to achieve the company’s overall goals, and those who go the extra mile to make work easier on everybody else, all deserve recognition. It all comes down to what the company values in a great employee.
Here are some ideas of employees deserving recognition for great work performance or an employee that works to make things a little more manageable for other employee’s:
- Top sales functioning for the month
- Top comments from customers
- Completion of special projects
- Working outside of regular business hours to meet a deadline
- Contracting new business cliental
- Working to solve complicated problems
- Putting into practice new procedures
- Taking time out to assist in a crisis or special requirement
- The willingness to pitch in with common tasks like cleaning up the staff break room
- Coordinating special holiday parties or events or office decorating
- Being a great team player
Having the ability to observe the employees and to be able to notice a job well done, is just as essential to the knowledge of its value. It will be of no use to plan to recognize an employee each month if you cannot watch to see who is giving their all. Most of all remember that personalized and sincere thanks will help your personnel feel valued and appreciated for their work.
