Are You Truly Recognizing Your Employees?

Success

We work to make money. That’s the point. While many of us find fulfillment through our work, it still normally comes down to money as the driving force that gets us up in the morning, puts us in our cars, and heads us down the road to our job. While money might be the motivating factor for having a job, it’s not the most important motivator for keeping employees happy.

In this infographic we created for Salesforce, we explored many of the factors that keep employees happy and working at their peak levels of performance. While 56% of senior managers thought their company was above average at delivering appropriate appreciation, only 23% of their employees agreed.

At times I also getcaught in the thought that since it is a J.O.B. and the employee is being compensated for performance through their pay plan, additional recognition should not be needed . In today's marketplace multiple generations work side by side. Taking a moment to realize the prime motivator of the individual goes a long way toward crafting an appropriate plan.
