The idea of employee recognition award programs is to say "thank you," "well done," "we value you as an employee." This rationale differs from the goals and objectives of other aspects of the total compensation. Salary is payment for doing the job; benefits are designed to protect the employee's well-being; short and long-term incentives direct and reward the achievement of specific performance goals. For an Employee Recognition Award program to work, it must be custom-made to fit your organization's culture and must show creative flexibility over time so that the employees recognize thought and effort from management's behalf, which matches the care and effort they put into their work. This creates mutual respect, better relationships and a happier and more productive staff for the company.


GLS Group would be happy to discuss how we can help you to achieve these goals and create a better and more productive work environment for everyone!
