Peer-to-peer Recognition: A Powerful Motivational Tool!

In Employee Engagement

Do you recognize your colleagues? We asked this question in our last blog post.

When employees take the time to recognize their colleagues, they promote a pleasant work environment, foster links between each other, and work together towards the same objectives. Workplace solidarity has a strong impact on performance.


This question was asked by numerous firms in 2014. Each of them noted that relationships with colleagues and with managers are on top of the list! Randstad revealed that 43% of people would be willing to stay in a position that doesn’t suit them for their colleagues.

Therefore, recognition is a motivational tool that reduces absenteeism and turnover rate.


You work for a big company? You would like to promote and celebrate accomplishments so that everyone can see them and take them as positive examples? You would like to publicly recognize your colleagues so that everyone in the company knows that their work is appreciated?

Recognition is useful for conveying tips and advices. With that type of feedback, people can improve their well-being by becoming more performant and motivated.

There are some tools to recognize employees in public. Those tools help everyone communicate better. They foster relationships between those who don’t get to see each other that often and they add a touch of friendliness and well-being in the workplace.
