Plan Better in 2017: Why an Employee Recognition Calendar Is Essential
There is no “one size fits all” approach to recognizing workers. Employee recognition is about so much more than throwing an office holiday party and hanging employee-of-the-month plaques on the wall.
That’s why we designed an employee recognition calendar. We want to inspire you to bring your engagement to a higher level and find the recognition approach that works for your organization. You know your company best!
Our how-to guide walks you through planning for seasonal engagement and a wide variety of holidays, organized by month. For those just starting an engagement program, we’ve included an assessment to help you define your organization’s basic engagement needs and your best approach to expand engagement.
Throughout the calendar, you’ll also find:
- revealing statistics and research
- mini case studies in celebrating employees
- “anytime” recognition ideas
- essential everyday engagement tips
Our “2017 Day-to-Day Employee Celebration Calendar” is intended as a year-round reference guide — so skip ahead, go back, reread and return to it whenever you need a little creative inspiration. This is “choose your own adventure” engagement!
Steve Jobs famously described creativity as “just connecting things.” That’s why we’ve put together this Employee Celebration Calendar: to help you make the connections that spark innovation and help build a unique, effective employee engagement program that fits your organization.
Why Now? Get Ahead of the Curve
2017 is the year to build a better feedback culture — or risk getting left behind.
“It’s time every organization takes their feedback culture seriously,” Business Journals contributor Dana Manciagli writes this week in her article, “How to Create a Culture of Continuous Feedback.”
Everyone loves getting feedback and recognition, but Millennials expect it 50 percent more than other generations. And they’re in the majority. In 2016, Millennials surpassed Gen X as the largest generation in the workforce.
Generational preferences aside, employees aren’t getting the recognition they crave. According to a Globoforce study earlier this year, a whopping 40 percent of employees surveyed say they weren’t recognized at all over the past year.
Gallup consistently finds that more than two-thirds of employees nationwide are disengaged. Among these disengaged employees, a good number are even “actively disengaged” — meaning their unhappiness and dissatisfaction is strong enough to infect coworkers.
“Business leaders stand to benefit enormously from appreciating their employees not on one calendar day, but consistently throughout the year,” Globoforce CEO Eric Mosley wrote earlier this year for Huffington Post.
“By creating a constant flow of recognition, employers can effectively produce a sense of well-being, trust, optimism, and confidence among employees that will propel company culture forward.”
