Employee Recognition in the Digital Age

May 18, 2014 by  

Now more than ever, technology’s impact on employee recognition is a noteworthy one. That’s because not only can technology help make rewards more current and relevant, but it also enables managers to more effectively hand out rewards for boosting morale and motivating employees. Award Concepts is at the forefront of employee recognition in the digital age. This article will describe a few ways we help our customers recognize employees using simple, and in some cases, free web-based applications.

Everyone wants to be recognized and appreciated for doing a good job. One of the easiest and most effective ways to reward your employees for no cost is to recognize them publicly for their efforts. Recognition programs with Award Concepts include the setup and maintenance of customized Recognition Portal websites. These websites are built specifically for your organization, and include great features such as bulletin boards, peer-to-peer recognition links and e-cards. Award Concepts will work with you to develop websites that fit your company’s branding requirements, and fit your company’s goals for recognition.

It’s important for organizations to realize that using the internet for recognition will help unify and build community amongst employees. As a part of these Recognition Portal websites, designated supervisors will have access to creating posts or news articles that are relevant to other managers and employees. These articles can be as simple as listing each month’s employees with anniversaries, or as detailed as an in-depth analysis of how a certain department’s productivity has been increased by a new measure at the company.

We strongly recommend the use of company e-mails and newsletters to drive employees to the community bulletin boards on your Recognition Portal websites. Here, employees and managers will engage in conversation using a familiar comment system.

The Recognition Portal websites can also be tied into any other websites your organization may currently have in place. Have a password-protected benefits website? You can link to it from the Recognition Portal websites. Do you have a company facebook or twitter account? You can also link to it from your Portal website. The internet is a vast web of pages and sites; your Recognition Portal websites can act as a central hub for all of your company’s various pre-existing websites.

In addition to our Recognition Portal websites, we also offer great services such as online surveys and customized e-cards. And one of our best tools is our 1 Minute Manager e-mail system.
