Making a Difference

Your Program in Action

Let the excitement begin! Now it’s time to implement your very own Employee Recognition Program. A kick-off event is the perfect avenue to whip up enthusiasm and tell employees about the program in a way that reinforces its purpose. It’s also a great way to make sure everyone sees that managers and leaders support the program. Communication is essential so employees understand the program and it's components, the eligibility and criteria for formal awards, know who is recognized and why, and can give feedback as the program goes along.

Step Six in the Tool Kit will help you implement your plan by:

  • getting you to develop a communication plan for the kick off.
  • giving you ideas for ways to launch your program.
  • sharing sample emails and articles you can distribute.
