A Round of ‘Applause’ for Samsung Employees
Hard work in the name of innovation happens every day at Samsung Electronics America, and taking the extra time to show colleagues how much their dedication to getting the job done is appreciated goes a long way.
In celebration of National Employee Appreciation Day, a few Samsung employees sat down to reflect on praise they either received from or gave to fellow employees through “Applause,” the company’s online peer recognition platform which is used to award points or share social recognition for a job well done.
Throughout the employees’ testimonials, one idea was always top of mind — how important it is to company culture to make recognition of exceptional performance a consistent practice. Because whether you are the CEO or an entry-level employee, everyone appreciates a simple pat on the back.
