Technology Sector Employee Engagement & Recognition Practices

Recognition is a key driver of employee engagement, but as the pace of business continues to accelerate, more companies are starting to supplement traditional top-down, cash-based programs (which are still highly valued) with more frequent opportunities for peer-to-peer recognition. This allows organizations to be agile and recognize performance in the moment. The same goes for engagement. Measuring engagement once a year is no longer sufficient, yet only half of the technology firms we surveyed are measuring it more than once a year. We expect to see major shifts in this area in 2017 and beyond.
