Acknowledging exceptional performance in real-time is a great way to engage employees by “Catching Them Doing Something Right”. Often, incentive programs include a number of corrective action moments. While it’s important to help your team learn, grow and improve their skill set, it’s also a good idea to balance times where improvement is needed with moments where you notice that they went above and beyond.

A well designed Spot Awards program allows managers to capture and acknowledge outstanding contributions instantly, often in front of their peers, motivating employees and promoting a culture of continuous excellence. When used in conjunction with a computer-based Manager to Employee recognition program you are able to maximize the engagement and participation of both your leaders and employees.
