【商業熱話】研究：近一半受訪員工表示離職的主因是未獲得公司賞識 Survey suggests nearly half of the surveyed employees’ main reason for resigning was a lack of recognition from their company
In the post-pandemic phase, many industries still face the problem of talent shortage. Companies have introduced various benefits to express their appreciation for employees, yet the power of public recognition is often underestimated.
Bonusly, a US-based platform for employee bonuses and recognition, conducted a survey among 2,000 local workers to study the impact of employer and peer recognition on employee dedication. The survey revealed that nearly half (46%) of the employees stated that the main reason for leaving their jobs was a lack of recognition from their companies. In fact, 65% of employees stated that they would work even harder if their contributions were noticed by management.
When employers overlook the efforts and contributions of their employees, it has a significant negative impact on morale and productivity. By providing comprehensive employer recognition and letting employees know that their efforts are not in vain, we can not only increase employee happiness but also enhance their loyalty and efficiency. On the other hand, peer recognition also has a similar positive effect. 65% of employees expressed that even if their supervisors didn't appreciate them, they would still be willing to stay in the company if they received recognition from their peers.
The best way to support employees is by first supporting managers. The survey found that a quarter of respondents expressed their desire for the company to provide personal coaching and offer career development opportunities. Employees believe that employers can show recognition by providing salary increases, wellness and professional development stipends, and recognition programs. Among these options, the majority (35%) hoped for the establishment of bonus or recognition programs.
The power of appreciating employees is not an overnight effort but requires long-term investment and support. Starting from today, let's incorporate appreciation into compannies' culture, allowing every employee to feel their value and contributions, and thus creating greater value for the company.
