Employee Recognition and Rewards

Appreciating employee work and achievements is a key motivator. Discretionary prizes may be awarded in the form of a cash benefit or in kind. While in the first case there is not much room for maneuver, in the case of material prizes employers have almost unlimited possibilities. You can give an employee for example:

  • shopping vouchers;

  • a sports pass or tickets for cultural, sporting or musical events;

  • branded merch;

  • voucher for a coursers;

  • a new smartphone, laptop or other device useful in everyday life.

It is very important to prescribe in the handbook how to use сompany recognition and rewards program. BrainyHR has a recognition and rewards feature, in response to such changing employee needs, we propose the use of modern reward tools whose key distinguishing feature is the use of the strength of experience. Experiences are understood here as an award entitling the employee to perform the service, e.g. parachuting, dinner on a yacht or weekend at a vineyard. The implementation of the experience raises unique emotions that are memorable and allow the employee to identify them with the context of work. In this way a bridge is created between the private sphere of emotions and the professional sphere.
