Standard 5 of RPI's Best Practices®, Recognition Training, is essential in creating a culture of appreciation. All employees, especially managers and leaders, need to understand the importance of meaningful recognition and how to give it. The organization's Recognition Training Plan should document how training is designed and administered for managers and employees at all levels, including the training objectives, methods, audience, frequency and measures. The following training plan components are crucial to the success of the recognition training plan.

- Select target audience for each recognition topic?
- Choose training topic delivery methods appropriate for each audience?
- Determine frequency of training (one-time, on-going, periodic)?
