Why employee recognition is important

Everyone wants to feel appreciated at work. But recognition is not simply saying “good job.” It needs to show that you are paying attention to the effort they put into their work. Meaningful recognition is one of the pillars of engagement and what will set your team culture apart. Not only is it getting recognition from the manager, but also peers. Both are equally valuable to strengthen relationships and motivation!
