Employee recognition can be given in many ways-through saying thank you, giving praise, providing opportunity, or showing respect. Being recognized for achievements, knowing that one's contributions matter to the organization, and the opportunity for growth and professional development have a considerable impact on employee satisfaction and commitment. Recognition is most effective when it takes place on a regular basis and in a variety of different ways. Informal recognition can be used every day to acknowledge contributions of individuals, teams and work groups.
