Employee recognition is appreciated by employees as it confirms that their work is valued. A simple thank you can go a long way, but it's even more effective when employees are rewarded for their achievements.

2.Employee happiness and well-being
Recogniiton can improve employees happiness increasing motivation to keep up the hard work. This means the working environment becomes a more caring and happier place to be.
If employees are frequently thanked, praised, appreciated and rewarded they are more likely to feel valued, thus leading them to stay at the company. As most people would rather work in a better working environment than earn more money, although incentives/rewards do help.
Employees are more likely to be loyal to a company where the managers are invested in the wellbeing and progress of employees. This benefits employee retention and productivity.
