A recent survey by” Globoforce” of over 700 full time employees which appeared in USA TODAY’S “Snapshots” focused on service anniversary awards in the workplace. The surprising results claimed that 51% reported no particular reaction or emotion involved with being the recipient of such a recognition gift.
We’re not buying it !
With multiple responses allowed by respondents, we’re solidly with the 39% who said they “feel more valued” ,and another 23% who then “want to stay longer” at the job thanks to being recognized.
Most would agree that from one’s earliest years in elementary school, human nature is such that we value and need “positive feedback”. Our experience and strong belief here at All Star is that a well thought out gift that expresses gratitude for a worker’s efforts will be appreciated and remembered for years.
