HR Tech Outlook | Tuesday, August 20, 2019

The implementation of employee recognition software will enable organizations to ensure greater employee engagement and promote better performance.

FREMONT, CA – The rising competition in the corporate landscape has spurred organizations to up their game in talent acquisition and retention. Although many companies are encouraging the incorporation of robust digital reward and recognition platforms to promote employee engagement, the utilization of paper-based recognition programs is still prevalent.

In most organizations around the world, nominations are submitted by email. They are then printed and distributed to the committee which will decide the top performer. The name of the winner goes on to the bulletin board or the plaque. However, this approach fails to have an impact on the performance of the employees.

The implementation of tech-based reward and recognition platform can revolutionize employee engagement in the following ways:

Enhanced Visibility

Paper-based recognition methods, including plaques and bulletins, often get overlooked by the employees. But with robust employee recognition software, organizations can offer a social feed in which employees can easily notice their recognized peers, regardless of location, on a regular basis.

Reduced Overhead

Migrating to a tech-based recognition platform will enable organizations to cut down on program administration overheads by eliminating form collection, gift item cost, and so on. Instead of overworking employees to overlook the program, organizations can automate the process using software applications.

Clear Insights

Tech-based recognition platforms will enable employers to track the cost and impact of their programs and to monitor the recognitions taking place in various departments. The insights provided by the software will allow organizations to form relevant strategies to enhance the impact of their program on productivity.

Meets Expectations

As millennials dominate the workplace, organizations must keep up with the expectations of the modern workforce. The generation which leverages mobile apps and digital devices expect the same at the workplace. By providing intuitive and robust digital interfaces, organizations can connect better with the workforce and boost employee engagement.

Transcends Restrictions

Migrating from paper-based to tech-based recognition platforms to robust digital software will enable organizations to overcome multiple obstacles plaguing the archaic practices. A tech-based recognition platform offers equal benefits to all employees irrespective of their location, and ensures equal involvement of employees in the peer recognition process.

Robust employee recognition software offers seamless connections, promoting higher engagement, and better work culture. Also, it enables effortless integration with the current recognition programs, eliminating the need for any dramatic changes. It will not only enable organizations to meet the needs of employees but also enhance their performance.
