Financial means of recognition still needs to be supplemented by genuine appreciation. If you're going to tell an employee (or peer) they've done a good job, you need to also let them know exactly what they've done well.

Socialcast put together an infographic that details some unique findings:

  • 85% of U.S. workers like to have their efforts recognized
  • 78% of U.S. workers report that being recognized motivates them at their job
  • 69% of employees said they'd work harder if they felt their efforts were better appreciated
