5 Trends Impacting Employee Engagement In 2018

  1. 1. what matters to today’s workforce? 5 Trends Impacting Employee Engagement
  2. 2. Cash is NOT King Contrary to a long-held popular belief, cash is not the best motivator in the reward and recognition world. Studies show that employees perform at higher levels when receiving tangible rewards. A participant study by the Incentive Research Foundation reports that when employees were given a choice between a reward that aligned with their own experiential preferences and cash, they chose the experience, especially for larger rewards. 99% of the participants in the study had unique reward preferences, thus confirming the need to offer a variety of choices for program recipients. The study also found that for 40–50% of the participants, the recognition experience had as much to do with the delivery of the reward as the reward itself. Public recognition by company leadership had the most impact for the participants.

  4. 4. Of course a competitive salary and benefits plan are important, but they are the baseline now. Today’s employees want to understand the culture of the organization and how that relates to them on a personal & professional level. Employee engagement and recognition programs don’t just contribute to the culture of an organization, they help to shape it. According to World at Work, 14% of companies already feature their recognition programs prominently when recruiting. Engaged in what? Gallup reports that 87% of employees are not engaged at work. (These are the employees who complain, dread heading into work, and don’t contribute). This is not only detrimental to the mood of the organization, but translates to lower sales and market share. It’s expensive to replace and train new workers, so a highly engaged workforce is economical. Companies with effective recognition programs have higher employee engagement and enjoy 31% lower voluntary turnover rates. The power of employee engagement

  6. 6. Employees pay attention to what is measured. The behavior that management recognizes and rewards sends a clear message to employees as to what is important. A 2016 study reports that 87% of employee recognition programs focus on tenure rather than performance. Employees are not likely to go above and beyond when they see that longevity is what matters most. When company leaders thoughtfully design incentive and recognition programs based on performance, they are demonstrating that they value results. Just showing up is not a result. Recognizing what?

  8. 8. Today’s worker has grown up sharing every detail of their life on social channels — and this includes accomplishments at work. With 24/7 access to mobile devices, the line between the professional and personal is blurred. It’s no longer likely that employees will create a clear separation between their work life and their personal life. These employees want to be recognized on familiar social channels and they appreciate being recognized for their accomplishments by their peers. Because managers can’t be everywhere, peer-to-peer recognition allows co-workers to share stories of the ways in which their colleagues demonstrate company values, contribute to corporate objectives, take care of customers, or go above and beyond.

  9. 9. No company, small or large, can win over the long run without energized employees who BELIEVE in the MISSION and UNDERSTAND how to ACHIEVE it. –Jack Welch, former CEO of GE
  10. 10. Why should you care about social recognition? Because the recognition is not coming from management, it’s more important than ever to decide what you want to accomplish with an engagement program and communicate clear guidelines to your employees. Social recognition helps to: • Improve employee morale and encourage collaboration • Improve retention • Increase employee engagement • Improve performance • Develop and nurture key talent The good news is that while many organizations continue to rely on monetary rewards to motivate employees, non-monetary, peer-to-peer employee recognition not only costs less in the short term, but provides a significant return in the long run.
  11. 11. 3It’s Always Been About Timing – Utilize Technology! Reward Desired Behavior as Close to the Actual Eve trend
  12. 12. Technology and social platforms allow for peer-to-peer recognition to be immediate and easily shared. As the line between personal and business blurs, it’s important to have technology in place that lets peers acknowledge each other on the social platforms that they use every day. For this reason, the trend is toward recognition programs using web applications and native mobile apps with video and editing capabilities. Co- workers are able to tell stories in real time and personalize the experience. • Collaborative Celebration • Content-Rich Experiences • Ongoing Social Interactions • Transparency • Immediacy • Instantaneous Recognition How does the technology help?

  14. 14. 4Authenticity is Key Catalogs with Toasters and Organizers don’t Feel as trend
  15. 15. Recognition needs to be authentic for it to be meaningful and impactful. This has never been more relevant than with the current generation of employees who are naturally skeptical. Saying "we appreciate you for your contributions of 5, 10 and 15 years of service with the Company” by sending a print catalog full of toasters, coffee pots and cheap jewelry will likely not have the desired effect. Worse, these efforts (and money) can backfire and employees can perceive the "symbolic gift" for years of service as saying, "is this all I'm worth"? When building out recognition programs, companies must look at how the program experience will impact employees' perceptions and take a good look at how authentic the program elements really stack up. An outside perspective

  17. 17. • Don't limit awards to just items in a catalog. Consider a broader view: Charity Contributions, PTO, Lunch with the Boss. • Involve Management in a definitive way in the process of celebrating and recognizing Milestones. A 5-minute call from a manager can be worth more than the monetary value equivalent. • Publicly celebrate by making Milestone celebrations something that peers can comment / notice. • Don't wait 5 years if the turnover rate of your organization is highest in the first 1-2 years. Not all Milestone anniversary's require a monetary award. Ways to impact authenticity
  18. 18. 5Give the Gift of Choice It’s Important to Make Employees Feel Empowered trend
  19. 19. Have you ever tried to purchase a gift for a family member or close friend and found yourself stumped by the challenge of simply not knowing what to give them? If we struggle in gifting those nearest and dearest to us, how can we be successful at choosing a gift for employees? Especially when considering all their various ages, stages, and interests? The most successful recognition programs provide a breadth of options so employees may feel empowered. This may include the traditional and the creative: • Charitable Donations • Branded Items • Paid Time Off • Merchandise • Retail Gift Cards • Travel / Experiences The skill of being relevant
