Regular readers of Recognize This! Know I talk about best practices for employee recognition and reward often. Indeed, these best practices are driven by the work we do with our clients (many of whom appear on various versions of Best Places to Work) as well as our continuous research with employees, managers, leaders, HR Pros and executives alike.
While our best practices approach has been codified in our book, Winning with a Culture of Recognition, and I and my team lead regular workshops around helping companies and organizations integrate these best practices into their employee recognition programs, sometimes this isn’t enough.
Many people I talk with want to know how their existing programs or approach to recognition and reward measure up. They don’t necessarily want the in-depth, full audit of their programs, just a general understanding if they’re on the right track or not.
To that end, I’m pleased to share with you Globoforce’s new Recognition Grader.
This quick, 10-question survey is designed to assess your company’s recognition program compared to best practices. When you complete the survey, you will receive a score, along with detailed recommendations in 10 areas. If applicable to you, included in the recommendations will be suggestions on how to optimize your recognition efforts as well as guidance on how to use strategic, social employee recognition to proactively manage your culture.
Try out the Recognition Grader, then come back here and let me know what you think.
