Recognition extends along a continuum from simple, tactical steps to enterprise-wide initiatives and long-term strategic practices. As organizations progress along this continuum, they engage in a recognition journey.
Recognition is powerful and its benefits increase as initiatives become larger and more strategic. Different levels of recognition have different characteristics:
*Tactical recognition features spot recognition programs that are handled by supervisors on an ad hoc basis.
*Enterprise recognition reaches every part of an organization around the world with a consistent program.
*Strategic recognition puts greater emphasis on culture management, linking recognition with company values and long-term strategic goals.
*With the advent of technology, mobile recognition is also a reality. Employees can recognize their colleagues anywhere, anytime through a secure interface.
The idea behind recognition in the workplace is that employees produce their best results when they are motivated to engage fully with their work.
