Employee appreciation awards continue to be under-utilized by businesses. And yet, year after year, studies prove that employee recognition is a powerful and effective way to incentivize loyalty and hard work within a company. In his article, “Why Employee Recognition is so Important- and How You Can Start Doing It,” Kim J. Harrison of Cutting Edge shares a 2014 study which found that after surveying 200,000 employees, “the single most important job element for all people is appreciation of their work.”
