On-The-Spot recognition gets instant results. When you recognize employees right away, the benefits start right away! When employees are recognized and rewarded their positive actions and intents are ignited. They strive to improve their skills in the workplace with the knowledge that there is an objective, and for more modern employees, an objective is a necessity. Point Recognition’s On-The-Spot recognition program, Peak, gives you and your managers the tools and a simple, cost-effective system to create the power of a positive environment.

Our On-The-Spot recognition program gives employers the opportunity to reward employees for a job well done immediately, rather than waiting for the end of the month or a regular performance review. By rewarding employees for going above and beyond the call of duty right away, employers can energize and motivate employees more effectively to help ensure that they are engaged and giving their best efforts. When employees know that their efforts will be rewarded by their employers immediately, they are eager for the next opportunity to make a great impression and do their best.

Best Practices for Spot Recognition Awards

Research has shown that the most effective employee reward programs are those that recognize employees who go above and beyond the call of duty. Here are a few best practices:

  • Involve peers, mentors and friends in the celebration
  • Create meaningful celebrations among friends
  • Turn them into events people look forward to as a way to honor a friend
  • Give awards that are meaningful to people
  • Emphasize belonging and team spirit
  • Involve both managers and co-workers in celebrations of exceptional performance

Everyone wants to be appreciated, so if you appreciate someone, don’t keep it a secret.
