This Episode: Virtual People & Performance Management – Recognise
How do we ensure we recognise people in this hybrid working environment? As we discussed in the episode on feedback, being out of sight really can make identifying the opportunity to provide feedback more difficult. Certainly, the absence of company events like sales conferences and monthly meetings, that previously provided space for formal recognition, has made things more challenging.
In this week’s episode of Virtual People & Performance Management Lucinda discusses the importance of regular recognition and praise. Furthermore, how we can recognise our employee’s achievements, whilst working remotely.

- Certainly, finding the opportunity to provide recognition has been negatively affected by remote working with people being ‘out of sight, out of mind’.
- If we are following the PERFORM model we will know our individual employees well enough to understand their motivations. Indeed, how best to recognise them.
- Certainly, it’s been proven, that as humans we are preconditioned to focus on the negatives. To counteract we should be aiming for 3 to 5 times as many positive instances of feedback to one developmental.
- In a virtual world we can set reminders to implement recognition. However, this is only effective if feedback is sincere.
- ‘The most effective recognition is when we understand what type of feedback people need, what is positive to them’
- ‘Create the habit of catching people doing things right’
- ‘Recognition is about sincere verbal acknowledgement of the small things’
