Use rewards to change company culture

An emerging trend in employee reward and recognition programs establishes a greater role for staff members in the process by allowing them to reward co-workers and be awarded for collaborative behavior.

An emerging trend in employee reward and recognition programs establishes a greater role for staff members in the process by allowing them to reward co-workers and be awarded for collaborative behavior.

Within this process, rewards are used to promote a collaborative office culture, Business 2 Community writes. Currently, a majority of companies have adopted a structure in which a great deal of responsibility is shouldered by one individual, limiting the capacity for innovation and recognizing single-mindedness.

Adopting a rewards initiative that lauds employees for working as a group to solve a problem is a good first step to changing how staff members approach their responsibilities. One key to doing this is explaining to employees the value of collaborative work in practical terms.

"One of the best ways to help get individuals to change is by clearly explaining "what's in it for them,'" according to the news source. "Once you have some case studies created, be sure to incorporate them into this plan. Using stories about collaborative situations and expected outcomes helps make it real for employees."

Firms shouldn't leave senior personnel out of this process either. For a rewards program to succeed, all members of the company need to be invested in it.
