Creating a Culture of Recognition: Total Rewards & Recognition Initiative

This comprehensive Total Rewards & Recognition program will help a company understand and instigate the proper format and platform for creating a companywide culture of recognition. Essential for encouraging initiative and driving success, we will help you align long-term strategy with a recognition culture; incorporate one cohesive management style and focus, backed by the company’s mission, vision, and values; set a benchmark for improvement; foster unity and clarity on specific goals and objectives; improve manager and employee performance; promote training and advancement classes; develop an internal Rewards & Recognition website; monitor results; and revive a sense of purpose and engagement, which all leads to increased productivity and exceptional performance.

Working with senior executives, Wolf Management will assist you in forming a Recognition Team, implementing a strategic plan for a recognition program, and creating the proper training and development workshops. This long-term curriculum will support and advance manager talent; build unity and teamwork; improve retention; foster employee morale and efficiency; and establish an overall vision that each employee understands, embraces and embodies.

Rewards & Recognition
In the past few years numerous studies have proven that one of the top motivators of employee engagement, satisfaction and loyalty is recognition. Employees in a recognition-focused organization are 5 times more likely to feel valued, 6 times more likely to invest in the company, 7 times more likely to stay, and 11 times more likely to feel completely satisfied. Extensive research shows a direct correlation between the perceived use of recognition in companies and the profitability of those firms. The financial return of Fortune’s Best Places to Work is over 225% higher over a six-year period as compared with overall market returns; companies with higher employee satisfaction scores (driven by feeling valued for the work they do ) have been shown to have a 700 % higher shareholder return. Wolf Management will show how recognition represents the single most validated principle for driving desired behavior and performance in today’s competitive work environments. We will take your organization through the seven essential recognition principles and discuss the creation of a Total Rewards & Recognition Culture.
