Quantum Workplace says
“Organizations with formal recognition programs have 31% less voluntary turnover than organizations that don’t have any program at all. And they’re 12x more likely to have strong business outcomes.”
If you give regularly, honest, and authentic recognition to your golf club employees then your employees will more likely to unlock their full potential. O. C. Tanner found employee recognition is the most important driver of great work. I would add the importance of a meaningful job as well.
We should look beyond the ‘run-out-of-the-mill’ rewards and recognition programs to engage and motivate better our employees. I would think of more fun awards that can delight employees. I would love to see more upskilling and talent development initiatives.
