HR is a function whose constant work is to ensure employees are managed in the best possible way so they contribute to the organization’s goals. Employee recognition is an important technique used by organizations to motivate their workforce.

It is possible to motivate employees by recognizing their good work. When an employee is recognized and appreciated by the bosses for achieving goals or for quality of work, it boosts his morale.

It also motivates others to work harder to get the same kind of recognition. The need for recognition is a human characteristic that can be used to motivate people.

Recognition can be done by something as simple as making an announcement or sending a message to all the employees informing them about the achievements of an employee and congratulating him.

This kind of public recognition can be highly motivating for an employee. The employees will feel proud of his achievement and will win accolades from his colleagues that will make him put in more effort.

Apart from recognition through appreciation, reward is a great way to recognize the work of employees. A reward is something of value that means a lot to the person who gets it.

A medal or a shield is something that employees will cherish and display in their work space proudly. Rewards can also include gifts like a memento or something valuable.

Rewards can be cash in the form of an incentive. It can be offered through other ways like shopping vouchers, a day off with tickets to a movie, a paid vacation, or any other such innovative way to recognize the efforts of an employee.

There is no doubt that recognition and rewards, when implemented effectively can transform the workforce into a highly committed team of employees striving to achieve goals.
