Recognizing Service Anniversaries of Employees

 

Leadership Tip of the Month by Ron Jasniowski

 

All managers want to retain good employees. But getting employees to remain until their ten-year service anniversary is getting harder and harder.

 

Rather than simply hoping for employees to stay ten years and then recognizing their ten-year service anniversary, recognize every service anniversary of every employee ... publicly. More and more companies find this is an effective tool for long-term employee retention and motivation. Service anniversaries also are an excellent time to appreciate a character trait about the individual and to describe how they practice the trait. Employees who are getting recognized aren't the only ones encouraged, their peers also are encouraged when they realize the company values them as an individual!

 

Managers who don't recognize one, two and three year service anniversaries are in jeopardy of losing their employees long before their ten-year anniversary. Set a date today for the first public service-anniversary recognition.

 

"Unappreciated employees are our most perishable resource."

            –Ron Jasniowski 2002
