2014 Top Three Trends in Rewards & Recognition

Rewards & Recognition Trends Report PageRewards and recognition has become an increasingly popular topic in HR Technology and the human resource circles in general.  Employee disengagement is high in many companies and the struggle to figure out solutions to change that is top of mind for many organizations.

This summer we conducted a survey of human resource professionals and corporate leaders to take a closer look at the current, future, and ideal state of rewards and recognition within the marketplace.  We had more than 400 companies participate, evenly split between domestic and global, and with company size ranging from under 1,000 employees (38%) to over 10,000 employees (22%).   The results allowed us an insight into how companies are handling rewards and recognition currently as well as what they want, or expect, in the near future.

Top Three Trends for 2014

  1. Early Service Recognition
  2. Creating a Culture of Recognition
  3. Social Media is Still Slow on Acceptance in Rewards & Recognition at most companies.
