Employee recognition programs are one of the best ways to foster happy, engaged and loyal employees in your organization. When deciding what type of program to implement, make sure you consider a peer-to-peer recognition program. This fast-growing option is a perfect way to involve your employees in a program that promotes awareness of desired objectives and provides a way to recognize and reward those who meet them. If you are not sure, take a look at these 5 benefits of having a peer-to-peer recognition program from Williams Recognition.

1. Provides Instant Recognition

One of the great aspects of a peer-to-peer recognition program, such as Tag-a-Peer, is that it provides instant recognition to those who haven’t been noticed. Instead of waiting for one or two yearly meetings with a manger to receive positive feedback on your performance, employees can receive instant feedback any day. 

2. Engages the Entire Workforce

Unlike other recognition programs, this type of program gets employees at all levels of the company involved. Any employee can recognize another colleague they see going above and beyond, meeting a certain objective or simply excelling in their position. This encourages individuals to do their best with the entire team, not just when management is around. 

3. Improves the Outside Perception of Your Company

Having a peer-to-peer recognition program sends a strong sign to those within the company, as well as outside, that you value your employees and encourage them to reach their potential. The happier your employees are about you as an employer, the stronger your reputation will be.

4. Encourages Employees to Do More

When employees know there is a potential to be recognized consistently, they will automatically strive to do their best. This type of program allows a system to recognize people who do overtime, do exceptional tasks, help colleagues, meet an important client last minute, etc.

5. Provides Valuable Workplace Data

Another benefit of this program is that huge caches of information will be obtained. By implementing this program through an easy-to-use dashboard, it will collect employee satisfaction, feedback, their comments, their professional development and much more.
