At Jidan Cleaning, my team is an integral part of my company’s success. I know that it’s my job to make sure I convey their importance and my appreciation for their role.
And that’s why I created our employee rewards program – and made it a part of our team culture.
Everyone likes to feel appreciated. As more and more companies are establishing customer reward programs, it’s important to realize that incentives and recognition for employees may be even more essential. While both can help build brand loyalty, recognizing your staff is ultimately the first step in earning you happy customers.
Rewarding and recognizing your employees shows that you value them and their contribution to you and your organization. Strengthening the relationship with your staff is not only the right thing to do but will also help your small business thrive.
Your staff has a direct influence on your customers and their satisfaction. When you recognize and reward them, even in small ways, it has a trickle-down effect on every aspect of your company including retention rates and engagement levels. It also sets a positive example for the employee communication and interaction you want from everyone.
Thoughtfully designing and integrating an employee rewards program while keeping it low-cost can do wonders for your business.

As a small business owner, you have the ability to build positive relationships with your staff and create a winning culture by acknowledging your team and their efforts.
Happy, respected employees talk about the benefits of where they work and that kind of brand marketing is priceless!
