Recognize This! – Your company values do you no good unless employees know how to live them in their daily work.
I think it’s a fairly safe bet to say most companies today have defined set of core values – behaviors and ideals the executive team has invested a good deal of time and effort in defining as the “how” of employee efforts as they work to complete the “what” (results/deliverables).
There is a very great difference, however, in having values,…Continue

Recognize This! – How you receive feedback is as important as how you give it.
We can’t be great 100% of the time. Yes, we all work hard and want to do a good job, but sometimes we miss the mark. Or perhaps the “mark” moved on us and we didn’t adjust in time. Frankly, sometimes our personalities are a poor fit. And in those instances, we need honest feedback on how we’re doing in order to improve.
Yet in today’s culture it seems far less likely we’ll have…Continue

Recognize This! – Culture chiefs play a role in setting the tone, but every employee is responsible for owning your culture.
I’ve just wrapped up a busy week of international travel, meetings and workshops. Thankfully, I work with a strong group of consultants who helped out. But this isn’t surprising. This is part of the culture of Globoforce - determination and respect (for urgency and teamwork) are two of…Continue

Recognize This! – Years of Service acknowledgement does not equal strategic employee recognition.
Part of my role as head of consulting with Globoforce is to help clients educate others within their organization that having a Years of Service program (also known as Long Service or Milestone Anniversary) is not the same as a strategic, social recognition program.…Continue

What’s your ambition for the culture of your organization? If you intend to create and preserve a strong company culture of recognition – one that drives engagement, productivity and performance – how do you that?

Recognize This! – We are all responsible for our own happiness, but we can easily contribute to the happiness of others as well.

Recognize This! – Feedback is useless unless it is frequent, timely and gathered from multiple sources.
Feedback. How often should we give it? Who should give it? When should it be given? What format to deliver it should be used?
All of these are good questions, but are we all in agreement on what feedback is?
Steve Roesler, author of the All Things Workplace blog, recently…Continue
