It’s a basic human need. If we do something for someone else, we expect some kind of recognition of our actions. While it’s true to an extent that “kindness is its own reward,” the reality is rather more complex than this. Human structures of encouragement and reinforcement, or even of simple politeness and respect, make recognition necessary.
Your team is getting paid for their services, of course, which is a form of recognition. But, in order to be truly effective, recognition needs to go far beyond this. Put questions of payment or even performance-based bonuses to one side for a moment and think instead about the human aspect.
Positive reinforcement and encouragement are huge driving forces within a company. It is these aspects that make employees feel genuinely valued and that help them to better engage with the tasks they carry out each and every day.
Recognition needs to meet three criteria if it is to be effective.
