Recent research from the CBI and Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) has highlighted the recruitment challenges facing employers in the current labour market with severe staff and skill shortages. Employers are especially feeling the challenges in sectors such as engineering, manufacturing, IT and nursing. One way for employers to boost morale and motivate staff is to introduce recognition awards for employees.
In today’s marketplace, it is crucial that employers consider the huge benefits of non-financial incentives to help retain and attract new staff. From looking at more flexible working, recognising staff achievements through employee recognition awards and trophies to celebrating a team members service with a long service award. The business benefits for introducing staff awards include morale boosting and an overall boost to productivity – team building initiatives cannot be underestimated.
Recent data shows that half of UK employers looking to recruit for permanent roles expect to find a shortage of candidates.
As REC Chief Executive Neil Carberry explained: “we are starting to see the effects of rising uncertainty from Brexit. Candidate shortage is likely to be caused by a combination of people being less willing to take a chance on a move, and a falling trend of workers coming from the EU.”
‘Non-Financial’ Employee Rewards
With non-financial rewards employees have greater scope to believe that their company values them and is willing to recognise their achievements which in turn is more likely to increase their loyalty and also their motivation. The benefits of presenting a crystal employee recognition award that sits pride of place on an employees desk has a huge impact on the individual, as well as throughout the business.
