Thinking of implementing an employee rewards program? Here are a few things to think about…

c1_employee_rewardsEmployees in general work better when they have a goal in mind.  Once they reach that goal, who doesn’t like a reward at the end, even if it just recognition for a job well done?

Developing and implementing a rewards program can seem overwhelming.  Here are a few key elements to think of:

  • Identify the behaviour you want to reinforce.  This can be meeting project deadlines, sales revenue targets or other job performance criteria.  This needs to be confirmed at the start.  If you aren’t sure what you are trying to reinforce, it will be hard to get participation.
  • Ensure the criteria and who is eligible is properly communicated and understood.   People get very competitive and any confusion can result in the opposite of what you are trying to achieve demotivating employees instead.
  • Bigger rewards don’t always mean better.  It can be best to start with smaller rewards, such as gift cards to see how the program is received.

In our hectic day-to-day lives, it is always nice when the company you work for takes the time to acknowledge and appreciate their employees regardless of the scale.
