Appreciated employees stay the course. Research from the SHRM/Globoforce Employee Recognition Survey shows 68% of organizations with social recognition reported a direct positive impact on retention. Read more in The ROI of Social Recognition white paper.

Increase profitability

Recognition drives engagement, and engagement drives profitability. In fact, according to Towers Watson, a 15% higher employee engagement correlates with 2% percent uptick in operating margins. When Gallup compared top quartile and bottom quartile engagement scores, they found that those in the top quartile averaged 22% higher profitability.

Improve customer metrics

Happy employees create happy customers. Globoforce customers use recognition to empower their employees to live their brand and their values. Studies show that engaged employees with a strong understanding of company values positively impact key customer metrics such as patient and customer satisfaction, customer retention, and customer loyalty.

Drive productivity

Recognized employees are more productive, offering discretionary effort as a result of their increased emotional commitment to their jobs and their companies. In fact, according to Bersin by Deloitte, productivity in companies with recognition tends to be about 14% higher than in companies where it does not. Our own joint study with the Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM) confirms this, citing a 23% increase in productivity for companies that practice values-based, peer-to-peer social recognition.
