New WorldatWork Employee Recognition Study

WorldatWork has released a new recognition study

From my perspective there was only one surprise. Their research shows that recognition programs account for 2.7 percent of payroll. With U.S. payroll costing around 3 trillion (2006 – source, that translates to $81 billion spent on recognition! This is significantly higher than my estimate of $18 billion reported in Make Their Day.

Read the report. If you see something interesting, leave your comments here.
