Calculating the ROI of Employee Recognition Programmes

2 minute read

Did you know, the average voluntary employee turnover in the UK is around 15% and between 10-30% in the USA?

Championing a culture of recognition has been proven to boost employee motivation and productivity, as well as reduce absenteeism and voluntary turnover. In a competitive market, recognition has become a defining factor of a competitive EVP. But what are the business cost savings of delivering recognition?

Calculating the actual ROI of employee recognition programmes can be tricky. So we’re here to help!

Rippl’s brand-new Digital ROI Calculator has been designed to do the legwork and reveal the financial impact of implementing a culture of recognition from every angle – with personalised results ready in just a few clicks.

Why recognition?

85% of the global workforce is currently disengaged. And employees who feel undervalued and demotivated can cost a business 34% of their salary per year.

Now more than ever, recognition programmes are a fundamental tool for creating a more motivated, more engaged, more productive workforce. 82% of employees are happier when recognised at work, and over half (53%) would stay longer in their role if they felt appreciated.

Recognition also plays a key role for emerging talent. By 2025, Millennials will make up 75% of the global workforce – and 79% say recognition boosts their loyalty to their employer.

Happy people create happy businesses. When employees feel meaningfully valued and empowered, they are more likely to unleash their full potential – and importantly, remain in their role. Recognition programmes can no longer be viewed as a ‘nice to have’, but as an essential attraction and retention tool.
