Why putting managers first is key to building an ideal recognition culture

By Alexandra Powell, Director of Client Services at Reward Gateway

It’s no surprise that employees crave recognition in the workplace and modern workers expect consistent recognition.

In fact, in our recent study we found that 75% of employees in the UK agreed that motivation and morale would improve at their company if managers simply said “thank you” more and noticed when people do good work. And according to KRC Research, 83% of leaders say they could do more to recognise others.

The presence of recognition scepticism at any level is bad for engagement. And you may have worked with a reward and recognition provider to design a beautiful solution that your employees were clamouring for, hoping it would improve churn and produce amazing results right away. And the design and features are important.
