More employers using recognition
to drive performance

Recognition programs abound in organizations today — but some interesting shifts are happening with respect to what organizations recognize.

Although service awards still top the list in terms of prevalence, organizations are focusing more attention on performance-based recognition.
The latest WorldatWork study on trends in employee recognition found that recognition programs are highly prevalent – with 89 per cent of respondents having programs in place. And many organizations have multiple programs.
Some 67 per cent of respondents offer between three and six different recognition programs, with 4.6 being the average number of programs offered. The average number of programs is back to the 2011 level, after dipping to 3.9 in 2013.
The findings reflect responses from 457 organizations.

I do not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a new service award company” - Linda G, Human Resource Manager, Lloydminster & District Co-op 
“Each year, we survey our staff about the ease of the award selection process and the suitability of the awards available, and their feedback is always overwhelmingly positive. Working with Ideasource on the awards selection has been a huge time saver for us, taking a large task off of our plates and freeing up our time to focus on the awards ceremony itself.” - Paula P, Manager, Communication Services, St. Albert Public Schools
