How common are performance recognition programs today and what effects do they have on the employees they’re designed to influence? To answer these questions, Trendicators™–the research division of Engage2Excel–recently conducted a survey of 1,500 U.S. employees representing all major industries and demographic categories.
Statistically Valid Research: The results of this original research study, which have a margin of error of plus or minus 1.5% at a 95% level of confidence, are presented in Engage2Excel’s latest survey research report, What Do Employees Say About Performance Recognition?
Key Takeaways: We’ll share just a few of the takeaways from the report here, but be sure to download the full report, as it is jam-packed with actionable insights.
PROGRAM PREVALENCE: Nearly three quarters (72%) of employers offer performance recognition programs.
EMPLOYEE PREFERENCE: Significant gaps (from 19% to 42%) exist between the types of programs employers offer and the program features that employees believe have the greatest impact.
PROGRAM INFLUENCE: Employees who work for employers with performance recognition programs are nearly two times more likely to agree with the statement, “I would recommend my organization as a great place to work,” than employees who work for employers without performance recognition programs.
