Why is an employee recognition program needed?:
Employee recognition is a communication tool that reinforces and rewards the important outcomes people create for a business. When you recognize employees, you reinforce the actions you want to see people repeat. Employee recognition programs can improve employee morale.
Every employee can nominate a co-worker when they are seen “going the extra mile” to support the mission of Rauch Inc.
Mission: “To support people with disabilities and their families while encouraging a community that acknowledges the value and contribution of all people.”
Examples of reasons to recognize include
Helping a fellow employee
New ideas to better the business
Outstanding customer service
Going beyond the basic job duties to develop
Improve the services of Rauch Inc.
To nominate a co-worker, recognition cards can be obtained from Human Resources or your Department Director. The employee must name the recipient and give a brief description of the positive performance. A Rauch Runner Shoe will then be displayed for the month on a “Rauch Runner” board located in each building.
What is the incentive for employees?:
At the end of each month, there will be a drawing for all of the employees recognized for that month. The winner will receive a gift recognition. Additionally, the monthly winner will be recognized in a company-wide email AND on Rauch’s Facebook page.
Which employees are included?:
All employees are eligible for the reward as long as they are seen supporting the Rauch mission.
An employee may not recognize the same co-worker more than once per month.
The recognition must give specific information about what behaviors or actions are being recognized.
