Workforce Achievement Recognition

On-site recognition and reward schemes should be implemented for workers and subcontractors, to show value and appreciation for work completed.

A motivated workforce could enhance performance and encourage feedback on issues such as safety, or generate new and improved ideas and working methods.

Workforce recognition can also help to make everyone feel included and involved.

Examples of how a company encouraged workforce recognition include:

  • Fortnightly checklists were compiled by the Contracts Manager and completed for each team of workers. The results were scored and fed back to the site foreman for the teams’ information, and also published in their on-site newsletter;
  • Once every quarter, the highest scoring site team was presented with a certificate and each team member was given a monetary prize;
  • The winners were announced on the website, which acknowledged how well the team has done.

Other sites have implemented similar awards schemes for the workforce:

  • The ‘Superstar award’, given to those who had gone above and beyond their work role, to deliver exceptional performance;
  • Rewarding the operative of the week with a free breakfast;
  • Free PPE reward and tool vouchers are also an effective way to encourage the workforce.
