What is recognition?


The term recognition is defined many different ways.  Some define recognition as receiving a reward or celebrating a success at work.  Other organizations define recognition as earning an incentive for reaching a goal.  All of these terms are related to recognition in some way.  However, they do not completely define recognition.


According to Recognition Professionals International (RPI), recognition is:


        An after-the-fact display of appreciation or acknowledgement of an individual or team's desired behavior, effort, or business

        result that supports the organization's goals and values.


Recognition is more than simply throwing a party, giving an employee a gift, or saying thank you.  It is an acknowledgement that intentionally links employee behavior to corporate goals!
