WORK RECOGNITION

This dimension refers to the extent that people receive praise for their achievements. This includes the extent to which individuals’ efforts are recognised in terms of encouragement and support.

 

Low Work Recognition High Work Recognition
Organizations that have climates that display low levels of work recognition are characterised by feelings of lack of recognition for the efforts that individuals put in to their work. In these organizations individuals do not feel that their efforts are rewarded, acknowledged nor encouraged. Consequently individuals within these organizations are likely to put in less effort and motivation into their work demands. These organizations can be seen to have an attitude of ‘why bother’ regarding extra effort. Organizations that demonstrate high levels of work recognition are those in which individuals feel that their efforts and energies are supported and appropriately recognised within the organization including colleagues and superiors. Organizations high on work recognition put systems in place that appropriately and meaningfully recognise the work that individuals do for the organization and consequently encourage and motivate individuals.
