General Employee Recognition Questions
What is Employee Recognition?
Employee recognition is the acknowledgment and appreciation of employee's praiseworthy performance. The goal of recognition is to reinforce positive behaviors and actions that produce personal and business growth. It can be anything from a "way to go" and a high five, to a high perceived value reward.
What is the Difference Between Rewards and Recognition?
Recognition is non-tangible, relational, and experiential while rewards are tangible, transactional, and consumed. Recognition is the act of letting someone know that you appreciate them and are grateful for them and what they do. Rewards are what you physically give someone.
Do I Really Need Recognition in My Organization?

Employee engagement can be tricky to measure because it is an emotion and can mean different things for everyone.
