Step 1. Pick a launch day and build your timeline
Best practice is to pick your launch date and work backwards to set key project milestones.
Step 2. Schedule your training sessions
Schedule manager and department head training sessions, as well as a company-wide session. Prior to the company-wide training, ensure leaders are fully enabled and know the best practices for providing recognition.
Step 3. Develop your email communications
Email #1: Introduction to the program. What are we launching? Why? When?
(More tips in the appendix!)
- Email #2: Introduce a recognition challenge to boost adoption! Employees are more likely to participate in your program if there's a prize involved. (See appendix for challenge ideas!)
Step 4. Track progress!
Keep track of your recognition KPIs by leveraging a people analytics platform. Reflektive's People Intelligence solution can help.
Step 5. Iterate, Iterate, Iterate
Pay attention to what’s working and what isn’t, so you can iterate your program and ensure it drives a culture of recognition across your workforce.
