Recognition in HR refers to acknowledging and appreciating the efforts, accomplishments, or behaviors of employees. It involves publicly acknowledging their contributions and providing positive feedback to boost morale, motivation, and job satisfaction. Recognition can be formal or informal and is aimed at reinforcing desired behaviors and promoting a positive work culture.
An example of recognition is when an employee is publicly praised during a team meeting for their exceptional customer service skills. Another example could be an employee of the month award given to an individual who consistently goes above and beyond their duties
