[NEW REPORT] ONE FACTOR THAT MAKES THE WORKPLACE A TOTAL SNOOZE
Some leaders are under the impression that employee recognition is simply just a fluffy idea. Which also means that many leaders aren’t pulling their weight when it comes to making their employees feel valued and appreciated.
Well, to prove them wrong, we surveyed over 4,500 employees across the globe to find out how important recognition truly is in the workplace. The most remarkable finding we uncovered from our Effect of Employee Recognition and Appreciation Report (the first of its kind, by the way) was that peers are the number one driver of fun.
70% of employees credited their peers for creating a fun environment. As for perks? Looks like employees couldn’t care less about ping-pong tables. Check out what the employees had to say:
“My peers often say thanks or tell me when they feel I’ve done a great job.”
“I’ve never once wished that I didn’t have to go into work. Everyone here is awesome, and there is not one day that has gone by where I haven’t laughed out loud about something, with someone here.”
“I look forward to coming to work every day. The people are great, and we have lots of celebrations for the good work that we do.”
And you can thank peer-to-peer recognition for that. Employees love receiving recognition from their peers, which helps validate their efforts and contributions. To find out what else recognition influences, download our report below.
