3 Reasons to Invest in a Corporate Recognition Program Today!




Summer is quickly flying by. Weekends abound spent with friends and family, recharging for the fall season.

This time of year can be quite restorative. It’s also an ideal time to celebrate your employees and develop corporate recognition programs that show your staff how much you value their hard work.

At Advantage Emblem & Screen Printing, however, we know our clients have busy schedules. For this reason, we’d like to make this post an exclusive update on our new offering: Awards & Recognition.

The benefits of corporate recognition are extensive, and this service represents a worthwhile investment for organizations across industries.

Why Invest in Corporate Recognition?

Research reveals that corporate recognition can leave a positive impact on the health of your company. From retaining quality employees to improving workplace performance, there are myriad reasons to invest in this service.

In summary, corporate recognition helps to:

  1.   Enhance Job Satisfaction

In a survey of roughly 1,000 large-company employees, human resources consulting firm O.C. Tanner Co. identified a powerful connection between recognition and morale. David Sturt, the company’s Executive Vice President, reported in Harvard Business Review that 70% of team members who were recognized for their workplace contributions indicated being satisfied with their jobs. Conversely, only 39% of team members who weren’t recognized stated they felt satisfied at work.

  1.   Drive Employee Loyalty

Say Stephanie and John each spend hours drafting individual presentations for their athletic equipment company, and both staff members knock it out of the park when they meet with potential buyers.

After presenting their work, Stephanie is recognized for a job well done and receives an “Employee of the Month” plaque—but the higher-ups don’t so much as express their gratitude to John.

Who is going to be more loyal to the company? All signs point to Stephanie. At Advantage, we cannot emphasize enough the importance of corporate recognition.

  1.   Boost Staff Productivity

We have no doubt that you want to recognize your employees because you care about them and the work they do. But did you know that employee recognition can also boost team member productivity?

In a 2015 white paper, O.C. Tanner Co. found employees who were given strong recognition were 33% more likely to innovate at work, and that they generated twice as many ideas per month as those who weren’t recognized. The same report indicated that well-recognized employees worked at 80% capacity or higher significantly more than staff who weren’t recognized as often.

Based on these statistics, we encourage you to start planning a corporate recognition program of your own. Note that athletic teams, academic groups, and other organizations can enjoy our Awards & Recognition service as well.
