Gallup and Workhuman Report Highlights Generational Differences in Recognition…

When it comes to planning your recognition strategy, one size doesn’t fit all, especially when it comes to different generations.

The study from Gallup and Workhuman finds that:

  • Millennials are 82% more likely to be watching for, or actively looking for, job opportunities than Generation X and Baby Boomers.
  • Recognition helps employees learn and advance in part because it's a coaching and behavioral tool that shows them what excellence looks like.
  • Employees who strongly agree that they receive the right amount of recognition for the work they do are 4 times as likely to say there's someone at work encouraging their development.
  • Employees who strongly agree that they receive "authentic" recognition are 5.2 times as likely to envision a path for growth in their organization.
