Employee Recognition Programs Are All About The Perks!

By definition an incentive is something offered to incite greater effort or to prompt immediate action, it is basically a reward given to an employee for greater productivity. People will work harder if they have something extra to work for. Knowing that there is payoff for the extra work and overtime that your employees dedicate to your business is an excellent way to make certain that your employees are not only willing to continue working harder and be more productive, but that they want to be. The difference between a good job and a bad job are the perks that make working bearable. The more perks an employee can take advantage of, the happier the employee. Financially, as an employer, giving out bonuses may not be to your advantage or within your budget; but opting for an employee incentive plan just might.
Think about it, you work hard, you run a company, youd like to have someone show you that they appreciate all that you do for them, the work that you do that goes above and beyond your job description, wouldnt you as an employee like to think that all the hard work you put forth for the company is not only recognized; but also appreciated? Wouldnt you like to be part of an employee incentive program that sent you on luxury vacations because you deserve it?
An employee recognition program is designed to recognize achievements that are set by management and reached by employees. Or it can be a random rewards system you have in place for the top earners and producers, or all around team players that merit more than a pat on the back. With incentive options you can send a single employee away for a local weekend getaway, a one night jaunt to a nearby city or send a team of employees on a 7 day cruise. Many people will not take a vacation because of the cost. Giving your employee a vacation will do more than boost morale. It boosts productivity.
As an employer you have the ability to customize your employee recognition programs however you like, so if you have sports minded employees send them to a game of a lifetime. Does someone on your staff live by the seat of their pants? Why not send them on an African Safari or a driving experience that will put them behind the wheel of cars most of us only dream of driving? All courtesy of the company that keeps its employees happy! Creating incentives to work harder and smarter; that is what Peak Performance is all about.
