Recognize employee performance

To help motivate employees you need to show genuine appreciation for good work and recognize the improvements they make. Here are some steps you could take:

· say thank you – it is a powerful way of recognizing someone’s contribution and motivating them to keep performing

· use internal publications, a note sent to the team or a poster to celebrate an individual’s success and to show employees their commitment and effort are appreciated

· if you have an intranet create a bulletin board or forum so employees can thank colleagues for their efforts and help with key issues

· give spot rewards for specific contributions or tasks where employees have exceeded all expectations – for example – this could be a personal reward relevant to their interests outside work

· establish an award protocol so employees can nominate colleagues for their work and the way they have helped drive the business forward

· host social events when you achieve key milestones or targets to thank your team or teams for their work

· hold celebrations for employee’s personal milestones or significant life events
