Build a positive workplace culture by leveraging peer relationships.

Workplace culture, employee experience, diversity of workforce – these factors are converging to create new dynamics in our everyday work life. A common denominator for success across each of these is peer relationships, which can be fostered by peer recognition.

Employee recognition has never been more important. A new study in late 2020 reported that less than a quarter of employees felt supported during the pandemic outbreak and nearly half surveyed didn’t feel recognized for their work. The report also noted that 35% of employees are looking for more appreciation. However, on a positive note, 47% of employees who HAD received peer-to-peer recognition in the previous week felt very engaged. One of the top drivers of employee engagement is recognition for good work. By integrating a recognition strategy you elevate your employees’ experience, improve job satisfaction and inspire success.
