Vantage Circle Partners with Rembrandt Awards to Introduce a Total Recognition Solution

Employee recognition goes a long way in boosting employee productivity and engagement.And by recognition, we mean the formal or informal way of acknowledging an employee's effort in achieving a company goal.

Companies that recognize and value their employee's contributions have seen an increase in their total revenue, productivity, and other benefits. It fosters a healthy workplace culture and proves to be one of the key factors in employee retention.

Over 68% have reported that they do not feel recognized at their workplaces. It triggers an urgent need to renovate our existing employee engagement practices. It pushes the need to create something that tackles this issue while increasing staff motivation.

One such way is to introduce a "total recognition program." A total recognition program focuses on carrying out various engagement strategies to boost engagement.

What is a Total Recognition Solution?

Employee recognition programs are initiatives taken by employers to acknowledge their employees. They are rewarded for outstanding performance, work anniversaries, achievements, etc.

A total recognition solution is a way of combining various kinds of employee recognition programs into one. It is a 360-degree platform that provides an all-in-one solution for employee recognition.

Types of Employee Recognition Programs

Generally, employee recognition programs can be classified into top-down and peer-to-peer approaches.

Top-down Approach

A top-down approach is the most common and formal way of recognition. It includes service awards for achieving a milestone or anniversaries.

It can also be in the form of annual bonuses and spot awards. The employee is presented with an award package. It includes both physical and virtual gifts such as an e-gift card.

Some employers also practice the point-based approach of rewarding employees. Employees are given points for achieving a goal. These points can either be saved or spent on many products or services.

Peer-to-peer Approach

Peer-to-peer recognition is more frequent and happens daily. 96% of employees want greater consistency in recognition. It is also believed to be more beneficial than the traditional top-down approach. It can be in the form of a simple note, gold stars, and so on.

Organizations are setting up programs where employees can be recognized by their peers, subordinates, and managers.

Keeping this concept in mind, Vantage Circle and Rembrandt Awards have teamed up to offer an award-winning “total recognition solution” to Canadian organizations!
