Two way street: Recognition and Employee Engagement

Posted on November 16, 2009 by Carl Bonura in Uncategorized

I believe that authentic recognition is a vital behavior to promote employee engagement. For employee engagement to work I believe employers and employees must recognize things in each other.

1. What do employers need to recognize in their employees?
* Employers need to appreciate people for who they are
* Employers need to recognize people for what they do
* Employers need to build relationships

2. What do employees need to recognize in their employers?
* Show appreciation for their work
* Tell their managers what they appreciate and what they don’t
* Recognize the value in the relationship and express it
