5 Key Recognition Strategy Components

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, August 7, 2019

RPI's 7 Best Practice Standards® are designed to aid in the creation and evaluation of recognition programs in the public and private sectors, large and small organizations, and organizations with single or multiple locations or functions. Standard 1, The Recognition Strategy, provides purpose for how employee recognition encourages the organization’s goals and objectives. The following five components can be used to evaluate your organizations recognition strategy.

Recognition Strategy

The organization has a written recognition strategy that articulates the philosophy and objectives for all recognition practices, including day-to-day, informal, and formal recognition programs. The recognition strategy provides purpose and direction for how employee recognition encourages and rewards specific employee behaviors that advance the organization’s goals and objectives. All recognition activities are aligned with the mission and culture of the organization. Does your recognition strategy:

  1. Link to the organizational vision, mission, and values?

  2. Provide day-to-day, informal and formal recognition activities?

  3. Have documented procedures?

  4. Include specific and actionable objectives?

  5. Utilize continuous improvement through feedback and measurement?

Tips

  1. There is a formal, written recognition strategy that supports the organization’s strategic goals. Behaviors are identified with recognition program and practices and employees are rewarded for demonstrating those behaviors.
  2. The Recognition Program has day-to-day, informal and formal recognition activities. Actions are specific, timely and meaningful for all.
  3. Recognition related procedures (dimensions, nominations, award selections, taxes, event planning, budgeting, tracking, team, evaluation, etc.) are documented and available across the organization. These procedures are regularly reviewed and revised as needed.
  4. Leaders are involved in setting the recognition strategic objectives which are directly linked to the organization’s strategic goals. There is a regular review of the actions and the impact on the strategy.
  5. The Recognition Strategy includes how the effectiveness will be evaluated and in what timeframe. The Recognition Life Cycle is used to determine what action needs to be taken based on the feedback and measurement.
