With today being Employee Appreciation Day, it directly relates to a Rewards and Recognition Virtual Conference I recently attended. Appreciation of the employee was the focus, utilizing it as a way to fully engage an employee who will then execute strategy and achieve desired results. The workforce is the most untapped resource many companies possess. Employee engagement yields: loyalty, productivity, and advocacy. Engagement is the largest "gear" in a company's operations, and appreciation is the most powerful cog which produces added energy and results throughout all other gears. Knowing what is important to employees is key, and appreciation for a job well done perpetuates a productive and engaged employee. As an employer one must present their appreciation sincerely, personally, and specifically. Recognition is performance based and generates added results across the entire workforce.
At All Star we have engaged, productive employees. They are truly appreciated.
