Why Measures Matter:
Making the case for strategic recognition.
It’s not uncommon for organizations to find their recognition programs disconnected from one another. Different departments, leadership, and management styles want to implement their own initiatives, creating more of a pop-up programmatic culture. These programs often end up being short lived and ineffective in developing long-term employee engagement.
The solution is to take a strategic approach to recognition with a supportive framework that is more than just a series of touchpoints here and there. One of the most critical components of transforming a recognition program into a recognition strategy is around measurement – and being able to make decisions based on data rather than gut. The good news is that it’s easy to put measures in place that allow you to test, learn and modify your plans accordingly to develop the perfect strategy.
A measurements-based, outcome-focused recognition program will create align and integrate efforts across your entire system, ensuring engaged employees and affecting organizational change.
