Employees are motivated in many different ways, but the one thing that everyone appreciates is being noticed for a job well done. It provides a sense of value and appreciation. The goals and benefits of an employee recognition program are multifaceted and improve employee job satisfaction and happiness. When an employee feels happy at work, their productivity improves. A study by the University of Oxford School of Business published in late 2019 found a conclusive link between happiness and productivity. Happy workers are 13 percent more productive. This study was conducted over six months and is one of the first to clearly demonstrate a causal link between happiness at work and productivity levels. Productivity is just one reason employers and managers should look for opportunities to boost an employee’s job confidence.
