Immediate positive feedback, even for a good try, can do wonders for a stressed workforce

NEW YORK, June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Employers face the challenge of an anxious workforce even as small signs of the recovery begins to show, according to a new executive briefing released by Madison Performance Group. Employees have had to work harder to make up for team members who've been laid off; they're facing a number of pressures in their personal lives – yet employers still need to be able to maintain efficiency and prepare for better economic times.

"In today's increasingly competitive world, recognition strategies need to do more," says Mike Ryan, Senior Vice President of Madison Performance Group, a premier global reward and recognition design and consulting firm. "Many studies demonstrate that showing appreciation to employees for making even small steps toward a goal can do wonders for workforce performance, especially if you do it in a timely manner and make it personal."

The new electronic version of Madison Performance Group's executive briefing, Performance Perspectives, offers seven easy-to-implement suggestions to keep your workforce as stress-free as possible. Recognition can be a positive bottom line contributor as well, as it helps relieve employee anxiety which, according to the Gallup Organization in April of this year, "takes a personal toll on workers and results in significant direct costs to businesses."
