Employers believe that employees are sufficiently valued and recognized by their employers if they receive quarterly performance reviews or a few quick words of praise. However, this mindset overlooks the fact praise doesn't last forever in an employee's mind. A well-established employee recognition program, which is more than just intermittent compliments, extends the benefits and creates a framework to ensure recognition is part of your company’s daily routine.
There are many types of workman awards and appreciation approaches. However, it is important that you remember one thing about all of them. Without proper planning, recognizing employees could lead to disaster. Publicly praising employees can cause jealousy, division, and unproductive flattery. This is because they are trying to get the recognition that they do not deserve. These tips will help you get recognition at work.

Share the wealth:
Your employee recognition programs should be designed to promote and encourage the whole workplace and not just one individual. Employees won't remember about the award at the end of the year, and they won't be motivated if they don't win. Employees will be motivated if they receive a variety of awards, including monthly, quarterly and annual.
Take a look at your corporate culture:
Recognizing employees should be a part of the workplace culture. A simple certificate and small gifts, such as a gift card to a restaurant, wine, or desk decoration, might be enough to motivate an employee.
Praise to the Public:
At company-wide meetings, announce award recipients. Make sure to have snacks, music, and decorations at all award announcements. Your employee recognition program will last longer if you show appreciation to employees more often.
