My employees won’t leave, they have no where to go. There’s no jobs out there. Why should I bother to recognize them then? It costs too much anyhow.
Let’s step back a minute and think about that. If you are only going to offer recognition to retain your employees, you’re missing the boat. Recognizing your employees on a regular basis, with sincerity, keeps the work flow at it’s optimim level.
The morale of the workplace effects how much employees put forth their best effort. If they don’t feel appreciated, they will not give their best effort. They’ll show disengagement by coming in to work late, calling in sick more often, working slower, being less friendly with the customers, or producing less. All of these effect your bottom line in a big way.
You need your employees to be at their best every day, especially in this economy. No business can afford employees working at half of their ability. Some businesses choose to increase the productivity through threats and discipline. Others choose to treat their employees with respect and honor their accomplishments.
Which business would you rather work for? Are you showing respect for your employees and recognizing the good things they do for your business on a regular basis? It doesn’t cost much, in fact it is much cheaper to recognize and reward employees than to fight dis-interest and poor workmanship. New Direction offers recognition items for any size business.
