In 2014, we created an employee recognition program for about 220 employees under Information Technology Services at West Virginia University. Over six months, a large and diverse committee of staff built a scalable, transparent, accountable, peer-judged program that we hope will help improve employee retention long term. With both positive and negative examples of past, unstructured and personality-dependent programs in mind, we wanted a system as fair and unbiased as possible. We created standards and principles to design a meaningful product that employees would use, appreciate and support. After five quarters, we have functional data, formative notes and personal anecdotes we believe are worth sharing.
