How to Encourage Nominations!

All employees would like to feel appreciated and that their hard work and extra efforts are recognised. It is important to create an environment where staff not only feel acknowledged but also look forward to coming in to work. This explains why more companies are implementing staff incentives as a direct way to show appreciation and recognition for employees' hard work, which brings increased performance and increased profits. The implementation is however just the start and employee participation, especially with regards to nominations, needs to be monitored and encouraged.

How the programme is run is important as this will determine its success or failure. Therefore it is vital to have a nominations and awarding process that is transparent so that everyone feels that the process is fair and just.

Below are behaviors that may be adopted in everyday dealings to encourage staff to not only nominate once, but to keep nominating:

Nothing beats the genuine feeling of being part of a family. Since we all spend so much time at work, building that sense of belonging for workers can be paramount for a successful business and programme. The employer can keep the spirit high regarding nominations by getting employees involved in choosing themes for the programme or monthly focus points. This will make the employees feel like they are a bigger part of the process, not just the nominator.

Peer-to-peer nominations are not a once-off concept, so it is important to keep up with the latest trends and also make sure you know what interests your workers.  If it is worth it for the employee, the effort of nominating will be worth it too.
