Information : Employee Recognition Day
A valued and appreciated workforce is critical to the success and future of any business. In 1996, Raytheon Missile Systems Company (RMSC) expanded its Employee Recognition program by adding an annual Employee Recognition Day. On this designated day, the company recognizes all employee contributions which led to the successful achievement of enterprise goals.
During Employee Recognition Day, organized group activities (free lunches served by management, publicized achievements) are held throughout the company. This day celebrates the accomplishments of all employees, as well as reinforces the company’s Recognition and Rewards program. Teams and departments are invited to display their accomplishments on kudo boards for all to see. In December 1997, the latest Employee Recognition Day was held in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of Hughes and the consolidation of Hughes Missile, Texas Instruments, and Raytheon. The event was also a celebration which successfully brought closure to the Hughes Tucson facility and launched the start of the RMSC Tucson facility.
Employee Recognition Day provides a unique opportunity for the company to recognize employee contributions and achievements, as well as improve communications between management and employees. The response to the latest celebration exceeded all expectations. Teams and departments displayed more than 700 kudo boards, and attendance surpassed 7,000.
