Did you know that, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, a majority of unsatisfied employees leave the job because they don’t feel appreciated? If you’re looking for a way to increase productivity, you can begin with your recognition and rewards program. Here are some ideas to get started.

Ditch the generic rewards

Overly general rewards may sound like a great idea, but ultimately they fail to succeed in their mission. If every employee gets the same rewards for different work, they may not apply themselves fully to the project. Make an effort to reward individuals for their accomplishments in a way that is satisfying to each person.

Tap into the element of surprise

Predictable patterns also make your employees roll their eyes at the process. If the same things happen over and over again, they lose their motivating edge. Do something spontaneously or completely unexpected to get your team’s creative energies flowing again.

Focus on the fun

Finally, employees like to enjoy the workplace; they spend more time at work than at home with their families. It doesn’t have to be all work, no play. Plan fun events that don’t have a specific tie to accomplishments, just to keep things lighthearted and fun. This will make them curious about what will happen next and happy to come in to work every day.

How do you reward your employees to increase production and satisfaction?
