Motivators, such as achievement and recognition, especially for your innovative employees, enrich a person’s job and have long-term positive impacts on behavior. Recognition of their ideas and contributions develops a loyalty between employee and employer which leads to higher satisfaction rates with one’s job. The more satisfied someone is at work, the less likely they are to leave in search of another opportunity.
A company's most valuable resource is its employees, and it takes a lot of time, money, and resources to train them. Losing employees can result in projects being disrupted and technical knowledge being lost, many times to competitors. Ensure that you are investing in your most valuable resource and recognizing their contributions, it is a simple solution that can make long-term differences.
