RECOGNITIONS FOR EMPLOYEES
The society in which we live is constantly changing, something that is increasingly noticeable in the world of work, with the incorporation of new work methodologies in different areas and sectors, as well as the emergence of new technological tools that facilitate certain tasks. That is why workers must constantly recycle themselves by complementing their knowledge with new skills (and vice versa) that can bring to their business effectiveness, efficiency, profitability and competitiveness, thus improving their productivity and results.
Thanks to the constant training of workers in a company, their personal and work skills are promoted, while their attitudes are adapted for their benefit and for the benefit of the organization itself. In this way, the employability and productivity of the workers is increased, aiming to achieve the general objectives of the company. Investment in training brings many long-term benefits, in addition to increased employee satisfaction and well-being, motivating them to continue their efforts and making them feel part of the company, on the one hand, as mentioned above, by increasing employee motivation. We all like to be recognized for our achievements. The objective of these recognitions is to increase motivation in a business environment to increase the productivity and performance of each employee. In order to capture the employee’s performance, recognitions such as certificates or badges can be used to determine the contribution of each employee.
Thanks to continuous training, increased employability and promotion possibilities both inside and outside the company (due to the acquisition of skills and favorable attitudes), reduction of risks and accidents at work, increased job security and job stability, increased job satisfaction and personal satisfaction on the part of the employee who has received training (self-satisfaction and self-realization of the worker), possibilities for the employee to receive a higher salary, due to the new skills and attitudes acquired, (which can provide greater added value to the company), apart from the aforementioned increase in productivity and competitiveness caused by the greater efficiency and effectiveness of workers.
Moreover, thanks to the use of new technologies for the continuous training of employees through the use of e-learning solutions (from companies such as Vértice, ADR formación, CAE, Eduflow, e-xplicate, iSpring among many others), it is much easier and more effective to offer workers a training that is not only fun, easy and economical for the company, but also modular and flexible for the employee. Also, taking into account the relevance of recognition to motivate employees, tools that allow the issuance of certificates and digital badges such as Certtun, to certify the skills acquired during training gain much prominence for their great added value.
To this simplicity must be added the ease of management and automation that it brings to the entity. Thanks to this, companies can have greater control over the performance, knowledge and training of employees, which helps to have a much more accurate picture of these, but also helps to control promotion and other human resources policies.
But these awards do not only have a symbolic value for the employee. They can be used by the company to create an objective record of the training and results obtained by each employee, and to apply its promotion policy accordingly.
Therefore, a person will be competent once he has acquired sufficient training according to the needs of his job and this process of training and continuous improvement will be part of his entire professional career, since the needs of both the entity where he works and the environment itself will require it.
