Offline workers are employees who may not have regular access to a computer, smartphone, or tablet or may not be comfortable using technology. All employees should be recognized and acknowledged for doing a good job and living your company's brand/values, both formally (through your strategic recognition program) and informally.
How else have you been successful sharing information consistently with your team? Use events, postings, spot awards, meetings, etc., to make recognition visible to all employees in your company.
- Include high-impact recognitions in newsletters or on intranet sites (via public computers accessible to all employees).
- Include examples of recent recognitions at the start of regular meetings. Use the One-minute Reminder Tool.
- Create bulletin boards and post certificates of recent recognitions or highlight a specific group (e.g., Department of the Month).
- Post certificates or highlight recognitions in a central physical posting space such as a break room, LED screen, or a company experience bulletin board.
- Implement spot awards. Highlight the highest-impact recognitions with periodic awards (for a specific time period). For example, implement quarterly pizza celebrations where key recognitions are reviewed, discussed, and celebrated.
- Highlight recognitions of top performers when onboarding new employees.
- For an environment that is not as comfortable with technology, have managers schedule 10-15 minute sessions that individual employees can sign up for to get assistance in posting recognition.
- Recognition is contagious! If an employee is not using the platform, catch him delivering the experience and recognize him for it. People are more likely to recognize others when they receive recognition themselves.
Also, incorporate recognition outside the platform in addition to the actions listed above.
