Report | Psychology of recognition

Using human motivation to design, deliver and measure better online reward and recognition programmes

We take a look at the essentials of recognition and appreciation. We share our research into key areas of recognition psychology, like:

  • How our brains behave when giving or receiving thanks
  • What kinds of praise resonate with us emotionally
  • What motivates humans to perform well
  • How you can put all this knowledge into practice at work.

Webinar | Using human motivation to design better recognition programmes

Have a listen to our discussion of the psychology of workplace recognition. Our resident experts – Lauren Goldgrub, GM of Recognition, and Gethin Nadin, psychologist and Director, Employee Wellbeing – share their insights into the science that’s driven our OneHub | Recognition platform.

They dissect the psychology of recognition and show its practical application in the workplace – from what makes a ‘thank you’ resonate with us, to how you can measure its effectiveness, this is the ultimate business case for showing your people some gratitude!

Webinar | Proving the link between recognition, wellbeing and performance

We all ‘know’ intuitively that recognition improves employee performance; that there’s a link between appreciation and wellbeing; and that a culture of gratitude delivers better employee advocacy. Now it’s time to prove it.

We look at the evidence that quantifies the link between recognition and flourishing work environments. Armed with neuroscientific research and analysis of years of data, our hosts will help you prove that recognition plays an essential part in organisational success.

Case Studies

iPSL – Hi5

Improving employee engagement and embedding a culture of praise is difficult at any time, but in the midst of a global pandemic, it’s a huge undertaking! Luckily, iPSL had already launched Hi5 – their version of our OneHub | Recognition platform.

Find out how Hi5 helped them to reassure and reconnect their people in a newly remote working environment. It’s helped their teams to bond in difficult times, and it’s encouraged their people to always focus on the positives of their day – something that we could all benefit from!

Benefex and MIB launched OneHub | Recognition platform to an all-remote workforce during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Just one week after launching, employee engagement was at 25% - a level other businesses usually garner after several months.

"It makes me proud that someone in my team has done well and been recognised for their work. The way OneHub | Recognition highlights those little moments of appreciation has really brought out the best in our people.”

- Sue Fenton, HR Operations Manager
