How conscious are your leaders of the safety behaviours they actually reward? According to a recent study of 8,212 participants across heavy industry, 89% of workers report that their leader struggles to display effective recognition for strong safety performance. In fact, only 1 in 10 workers hold positive perceptions of their leader’s recognising ability. Ineffective recognition can have unintentional consequences and drive unhelpful safety behaviours that put workers at increased risk.
In this webinar we explored:
- The importance of recognition in influencing the behaviour of employees
- The basics of how to recognise others effectively
- The inherent challenges in most reward and recognition systems and how to overcome these
- How to build intrinsic motivation within your team for improved safety performance
