Some managers shy away from implementing employee recognition programs fearing high associated costs yet there are some simple and free-cost recognition programs like saying "thank you" and "well done" which are crucial like Perks.com which reported that "thank you" is a simple gesture that can make an enormous impact on any organization. It was upon this basis that the study's main purpose was to assess the relationship between simple employee recognition and employee productivity. This was guided by objectives; how best employee productivity can be determined and measured, forms of simple employee recognition, relationship between simple employee recognition and employee productivity, and strategies of how to improve employee productivity through recognition.
Related literature was reviewed and gaps regarding the level of how business organizations are embracing simple employee recognition programs and how as to what extent simple employee recognition programs relate to employee productivity. Not all companies had embraced similar recognition programs and their effect seemed to be unclear as per reviewed related literature and thus a need to fill the gap by establishing a clear relationship between simple recognition programs and employee productivity in business organizations.
A case study research design in support of both quantitative and qualitative techniques was applied, for data collection, presentation and analysis. A sample size of 400 respondents was selected and used with composition of all levels of management for M-Nic CRC. Data collection was done using questionnaires and interviews, then later presented, analysed (using Pearson correlation of "r"), interpreted and discussed for conclusions and recommendations.
Research findings include: Employee productivity is highly measured basing on the amount of work done within limited prior set timeframe; Praising for good work done (r = 0.888) and saying thank you (r = 0.829) are best forms of employee recognition; Simple employee recognition programs contribute positively towards achievement of improved employee productivity especially with saying thank you justified by 83% ; and Creation of goals/plans for employee recognition programs with employee involvement was highly recommended.
Study Recommendations include: Provision of good ambiance and friendly working conditions; respecting breaks and offering special holiday days ; Improved and strong supervisor-employee relationship; and Keeping promises, timely feedback and respect.
