See the Good, Acknowledge the Good

Wednesday, March 1, 2023

Half of US workers want more recognition at work. 

Employees want recognition that is:
•	More frequent
•	More proactive
•	Shared more broadly across the organization
•	Unbiased

Only 1/4 of employers ask employees how they would like to be recognized.

When their work is recognized, employees say they are more likely to:
•	Go above and beyond their responsibilities and for their customers	
•	Stay with the company
•	Be more motivated to support their team

1 in 5 employees say they’re never recognized for their work.
