Public recognition is the key to retaining your staf

With 47% of all staff citing a lack of recognition at work as a major contributing factor in their decision to take another job (Personnel Today, 22 January), making a greater public event of rewarding achievements would address this issue.

Ensuring that hard work, loyalty and support is publicly acknowledged on a regular basis is imperative in creating a highly motivated and successful workforce. Since recognition among a peer group is the most rewarding prize, companies should pull out all the stops to ensure that loyalty is properly recognised.
