What are the benefits of milestone awards for employees?

Rewarding your employees for major milestones has plenty of benefits. Find out more.

Employee loyalty

Loyalty is often taken for granted in the corporate world. However, it is essential for organizations to celebrate employee years of service/milestones. This way, you can motivate your team to continue working for you and maintain low turnover rates. A typical years of service award program may celebrate 5-, 10-, 15-, and 20-year employee milestones.

Retention improvement

Employees that feel recognized and appreciated are far more likely to stay at a company for a longer period of time. And that, in reverse, is a benefit for you as a company since long serving employees have deep knowledge of both the industry and the organization.

Talent attraction

Candidates who know about the rewards and milestone recognition in your company will more likely join you.

Morale increasement

Employees will likely do more than they are obliged to when they feel recognized and appreciated. The all-over morale of the company will increase when your employees know that their hard work and going beyond their duties are noted.
