What Are Employee Rewards and Recognition?

Any time leadership publicly praises a team or individual employee, that can be considered employee rewards and/or recognition. These efforts help employees feel valued by the company and can go a long way towards building trust and engagement.

Problem: Missed Opportunities For Recognition

Most leaders know that employees thrive on positive feedback, but they lack a simple and consistent way to highlight their teams’ successes. Without an easy process in place, occasions for team member recognition can pass leaders by, resulting in missed opportunities for increased engagement and feelings of support among employees.

Solution: Highlighting Employee Achievement

Even something as simple as a small shoutout to a job well done can go a long way for recognizing employees’ work, especially when there’s a tangible way to see its reach. In a modern organization, there aren’t always ways to do this in person regularly, but with MangoApps, it’s easy to create posts that highlight team or individual wins, and for other colleagues to comment or react with emojis.
These capabilities are built right into MangoApps, with a wide variety of pre-programmed templates available for instant use. It’s also easy to create your own templates for company-specific highlights and occasions. Rewards and recognitions are mobile-friendly and can be created on the go in minutes, so opportunities to show appreciation are never overlooked.
Recognition posts can be shared to a team page or an individual’s profile page, where coworkers can see, react, and get involved in the celebration. This type of encouragement takes little effort on the part of leadership and can increase happiness and trust among employees.
We’re not just bosses pointing fingers but actually here to support and share ideas and to elevate success. We can celebrate successes when someone’s done particularly well. We can make the company aware of that particular person so that everyone knows about it and not just the 10 people that may be working in the store that day.
