Employee Recognition Course: Introduction

We teach participants in this course how to recognise the achievements of their employees.

Employee Recognition Course :Course Outline

  • Walmart have a particularly good program for employee recognition.
  • They guard their secrets with their very lives, but it is possible to find out how Walmart does it, and how you could emulate their program.
  • We have all seen the ‘free recognition’ memes on Facebook and other social platforms. The Employee of the Month photo on the big whiteboard which, while pronouncing Ben to be the employee of the month, also sports a litany of messages to Ben, all of which are funny. See what they did right there?
  • The original stodgy Employee of the Month award nobody looks at twice, is now examined by everybody working at that Walmart and everybody on social networks who see the post.
  • Ben isn’t just getting a high five from his team leader, his colleagues have injected humour and elevated the recognition from something pertaining to one store in one town to a global market.
  • That’s good PR, but then again, Walmart are known for it.
  • Anyway, Walmart levels of recognition are what we are aiming to teach you.
  • In this workshop we will teach you to assess the type of Employee Recognition program your company needs, we will show you how to train leaders to recognize their employees.
  • You will know when and where recognition is needed and we will give you the skills to maintain your employee recognition program.
  • We will kick things off by examining the different types of incentives will best suit your company, your budget and your employees.
  • In module three we will help you design a program appropriate to your company.
  • We all know what the SMART method is, we will now introduce the SMART format. This is an acronym for Sincere, Meaningful, Adaptable, Relevant and Timely.
  • The most important consideration must be the budget, you do not want to implement a reward program this year only to withdraw it next year due to budget constraints.
  • TIP: A great idea for on the spot recognition would be providing managers with company cards. The goal of employee recognition is to increase the repetition of desirable behaviour, so the reward must fit whatever is being recognized. The team leader on a gold mine shift would require a very different sort of recognition; especially one that fits with his culture.
  • We wrap our workshop up by introducing a few ideas for small gestures of recognition that will be applicable to any company. We tell you when to roll out the red carpet and last but not least we end with a list of don’ts and maintenance of your program.
