Employee Recognition and Rewards

Let’s build a recognition strategy that motivates, rewards, excites, and drives the performance of your employees. 

Unlocking the full potential of your employees

A well-designed recognition program translates into employee engagement, loyalty, and productivity. But it’s not about giving out cash or the typical “employee-of-the-month” plaques. It’s about aligning your day-to-day activities and building a culture of recognition. It’s about making employee recognition a central part of your business strategy.

Recognition and rewards should be aligned with your strategy and drive your employee engagement program. They should identify and reinforce behaviours that are in line with your organization’s core values. It’s the opportunity to say — both to the recipient and to those around them — “This is who we are. This is what we want from our team.”

At BI WORLDWIDE Canada, we're a global leader in employee recognition. We know that specific, timely recognition is the most effective way to acknowledge employees’ accomplishments. We also know recognition is reciprocal, how you treat your employees will come back to you — for better or for worse.

Employee reward and recognition programs

We design and deliver a range of reward and recognition solutions that are grounded in the science of behavioural economics, including:

  • An employee service awards program that recognizes employee loyalty in a personal way.
  • An employee points program that combines a tailored suite of tantalizing rewards with high-touch service (and budget control).
  • A social recognition program that holds up both peer-to-peer and manager-to-employee recognition. This empowers employers and employees to play an active part in the company’s culture of recognition.

Steps to reward and recognition success

We know there are keys to a successful recognition program:

  • First and foremost: Engage managers. Educate them on the importance of recognition and how to effectively recognize employees.
  • Start at the top communicating clearly defined expectations from the beginning. This message must come from the top and be reinforced by all levels of management.
  • Your values should be the building block for behaviours you recognize.
  • Determine specific rewards and recognition strategies that are “glocal” – can be applied globally, taking into account local customs and values.
  • Measure, measure, and measure again. Think employee recognition isn’t quantifiable? Think again. Accurate, ongoing measurement will keep your program front of mind — and will prove that your recognition strategy it’s truly making an impact.
