It increases their sense of belonging and makes them want to stay. A consistent flow of employee recognition creates a workplace culture and community where people thrive.


Highly integrated recognition increases odds of:




Great work


Thriving culture

How can companies maximise the impact of their recognition efforts? Here are 10 essential strategies for effective recognition programs.

1) Offer tools that are easy to use.


Incorporate recognition tools into the fabric of your employees’ everyday experience and their flow of work. Use technology integrations like those in Culture Cloud so employees can easily and quickly give recognition when they see great work happening in the apps they use every day: while sending emails in Outlook, chatting on Slack or Teams, or working in Chrome. Embed training into your recognition tools so employees know how to create meaningful experiences when recognising one another.
