We know that a marriage is not a wedding. A marriage is moments of respect, compassion, trust, sacrifice, love, friendship, and so much more. A wedding is just an event.
Employee engagement is not an employee recognition event. Engagement comes from providing purpose, appreciation, trust, collaboration, caring, safety, belonging, growth, and so much more.
Employee recognition events are a fantastic way of celebrating great employees, but don’t think that they lead to a company of awesome employees. That happens in all the forgotten moments in-between.
