How to Create Your Recognition Strategy

Posted By RPI, Tuesday, February 13, 2018
Untitled Document
  1. Strategy first. A sustainable effective recognition program starts with strategy that includes management buy-in and a strong communication strategy.
  2. Think “objectives.” Your written recognition strategy should articulate the philosophy and objectives for all recognition practices, including day-to-day, informal, and formal recognition programs.
  3. Provide clarity. Your recognition strategy provides purpose and direction for how employee recognition encourages and rewards specific employee behaviors that advance the organization’s goals and objectives.
  4. Connect to culture. All recognition activities should be aligned with the mission and culture of the organization.
  5. Mix it up. A successful program includes intangible recognition (verbal and/or written praise), awards (cash or tangible items), and celebrations (planned or spontaneous events). Intangible recognition can be a certificate or other token of appreciation. Celebrations can be an informal team lunch or an organization-wide event.
  6. Reinforce. Reinforce. Reinforce. Successful recognition programs use a variety of motivational tools and communication methods to maximize opportunities to positively reinforce behavior that is consistent with the organization’s goals and values.
  7. Draw on the 7 Best Practice Standards. Base all of your recognition programs on the RPI 7 Best Practices® () and learn more about “real world” recognition strategies here.
