We all would agree that one of the most powerful motivators for employees in an organization is recognition. There are some special days in an Employee’s life at the organization, which the HR Team should make a note and greet them on that day without fail. Recognition has a longer-lasting and more noticeable effect on employee’s motivation levels.
Some examples of those special days in an employee’s career could be Birthday, Work Anniversary, Probation Completion, Long Service Completion, i.e. 5 years or 10 years, promotion dates and the list can go on. These days are important dates in an employees lifecycle within the organization and is chance for an employees identity to stand out by being recognized independently of his/hr department, designation or team, absolutely individually, at the same time stand in the limelight for a day. They feel special as they may also have some element of emotional connect with these days, so making them feel special on these occasions, is a great PR building exercise for the HR department. An employee would always value the feeling of being remembered in the organization and definitely feel more involved and connected to the organization. Celebrating these days typically would depend upon various organization policies, but wishing them on these days is truly noticeable and a memorable experience for the employee.
