Here are 5 ways to use the @mentions that your employees receive during Weekly10 check-ins to impact employee engagement.
💡 Top tip: Link your Weekly10 check-in Recognition question responses to a Microsoft Teams channel so that all the @mentions will automatically published for that channel's members to see.
This has three effects:
- Gives an extra boost to the person being recognised
- Encourages more people to start recognising others (it's a snowball effect)
- Gives senior leaders visibility of those who consistently go the extra mile
Create a leader board to encourage more @mentions
Encourage your people to show gratitude more often by creating a leader board that recognises those that @mention others the most. This rewards those giving recognition rather than those receiving it, and has a snowball effect as it'll encourage more people to start mentioning others.
Create a leader board for the most @mentions
Run quarterly leader boards that look at how many times your people are being mentioned. Make sure that the recognition is specific though as this is what creates real value. This rewards those who consistently go the extra mile for their peers recognition. It'll encourage more people to start mentioning others too.
Reward employees who demonstrate company values
Ask your employees to include company value #hashtags when they're recognising others so that you can collate these. This can be used if you give awards based on company values.
Showcase your team's mentions in your next All Hands meeting
Managers can view all their team's @mentions. Collate these and share the best ones in your next All Hands meeting as a way to showcase the great work your people are doing.
Reward exceptional achievements with senior visibility
Have your CEO or VP reach out directly to the employees who have been recognised multiple times or have gone more than the extra mile. Visibility with senior leaders is another key driver to feeling engaged. When your people feel seen they feel valued.
