Recognition Toolkit

Sincere recognition is one of the most powerful ways to let an employee know they are valued and their work matters. Formal awards programs are only one way to recognize employees. This toolkit provides a variety of ways to provide timely, meaningful and relevant recognition and suggestions for how to cultivate a culture of recognition in your team.

The following interactive PDF document is meant to be downloaded and saved to your server rather than used in the web-viewer. It works best when opened with the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader DC or Adobe Acrobat Pro DC. Older versions or other PDF software may limit the functionality in which case manual entry may be required for text boxes and assessment calculations.
