Why Recognize?

As your business expands and improves, it is vital for a successfully operating company to maintain and retain their quality workforce. Salaries, benefits and work location are the three main aspects to be considered when an employee accepts a job. With the current exodus of trained and qualified staff divided between competitors, what can your organization do to sustain employee satisfaction? How does your business achieve high employee loyalties while still maintaining a budget?

An affirmative work environment in conjunction with acknowledgment helps create positive recognition for loyalty and achievements. This is the number one reason why an employee remains with a single employer. Rewarding an employee on important milestones is an important action strengthening the employee's value and devotion to your organization.

Employee Recognition produces feelings of good will between the employee and employer. Gifts need not be cost prohibitive; however, an extremely successful employee recognition program includes gifts exhibiting a recognized name brand and quality manufactured personal jewellery items with varying precious gems signifying advanced levels achieved by the employee. It is the gesture of receiving a reward that provides the feeling of gratitude felt by the employee, which can restore a bounce in their step for a long time into the future.

After training over 30,000 executives, managers and employees on the front lines, we know that fostering a culture of mindfulness is an effective response to the kinds of maladies found in our modern workplaces.

Unlike other offerings that focus on teaching intensive meditation, our core training, the Mindfulness Challenge, teaches mindfulness-in-action and develops mindfulness as a core competency that is relevant and accessible for all. Busy people can tap into this evidence based practice in the middle of a meeting, negotiation, on the front lines or conference call - no quiet room, yoga pants or closed eyes required.
