Rewards and recognition are essential for keeping employees motivated and engaged. Rewards can come in various forms, including monetary incentives, promotions, extra time off, or even just public acknowledgement of a job well done. Recognition, on the other hand, is about acknowledging employees’ contributions and efforts, both privately and publicly. It can be as simple as a thank-you note or as elaborate as an employee of the month program. Either way, rewards and recognition can lead to increased job satisfaction, improved productivity, and decreased turnover rates.
