Every organization I have ever worked with, both as an employee and as a consultant, has struggled with recognition. The opportunities range from developing, harmonizing, or rolling out a program to having quality interactions that are actually received as they are intended. Then there are those organizations that have almost no recognition to speak of--those are the worst because it shows in other places (performance, engagement, culture, etc. ) but they blame it on other things. The point is, we all struggle with it, even the ones that do it best. Luckily, there are lots of things out there that offer great learning and stimulus to inspire ideas, like this eBook above from Baudville. Many organizations have failed to see recognition as an employee experience, one that can be purposeful designed for with the employees and their context in mind. Design of Work Experience (DOWE) is the methodology that I've found to be most useful in creating these customized solutions. Best practices only go so far.
