I have a pack of life changers card which has different values. I have decided I will pull out a card everyday and relate that value to recognition at workplace.
At work, we all work as teams most of the times and we are dependent on peers,managers and directs to get work done. At work most of the times we are judged on our individual performance and we focus more on that. But as a team we are dependent on each other to complete the work. When things don’t go well, we are always ready to blame others.But when things go well, why don’t we take time to recognize our team for what they have demonstrated.
Many organizations don’t have platforms which enable this behavior. Organizations should nurture the culture of peer recognition and feedback. With the workforce mix changed due to millennial and gen-Xs and ease of mobile use at workplace, it is very easy to create solutions to enable this behavior. When peers are open and transparent about giving recognition and feed forward then the team performance uplifts.
Peer to Peer recognition can be embraced in many ways. You can have simple thank-you cards, badges , shout-outs or latest technological solutions. Encourage dependability ad recognition at your workplace.
