It's important to know the difference between recognition and rewards. Many companies "force" rewards on employees.
Forced corporate rewards do not feel rewarding at all.
Over 50% of companies do not have a rewards and recognition budget but spend 30k+ on a corporate annual party employees are “forced” to go to usually during holiday times when family schedules are overwhelming.

Extraordinary companies understand that a large part of their dynamic people programs rely on rewards and recognition.
People go where they feel valued. Receiving recognition is a primary human need. We all desire to know that we make a difference and that our contributions matter.
Rewards and recognition programs reflect exceptional leadership and the values of an organization at large.
Leadership must invest in attracting, and maintaining their corporate citizens through elaborate, well-designed rewards and recognition programs to secure the future of their company.
