Central to the functioning of SNP is a strong internal culture that supports staff and attracts the highest quality of talent. As a testament to this, SNP recently featured in Power2Motivate’s 10 year study, looking at key underpinnings in creating a successful culture of employee recognition.
The study looked into the importance of reward programs as a key component in fostering a positive and dynamic workplace environment. Rewards programs were found to be most effective when they offered meaningful, tangible rewards, were inclusive, transparent, fun and promoted core values of their associated company.
Within the study, SNP served as a successful case study to reiterate the positive impact a rewards program can bring. When looking at company values serving as a foundation for a recognition program, SNP GM of People and Strategy, Darlene Winston was quoted,
“At SNP we recognise anything anyone does that is over and above what would be expected of them across our five values – it could be teamwork, growth and development, leadership, safety or service. This direct link reiterates the importance of these values to our overall business success, and gives very tangible examples to employees to model.”
Another reference was attributed to the offering of purposeful rewards,
“We found giving staff the chance to accumulate points they could eventually use to buy Christmas presents for their kids had real value – and encouraged them to stay with us. We have also seen a decrease in other work issues, namely sick days and staff turnover,” said Winston.
SNP is committed to providing its staff with a supportive workplace environment and will continue to manage and measure this through the SNP Star Rewards Recognition Program to ensure its success. The recognition program is run via an online platform, recognising the exceptional service of employees that go above and beyond their role to deliver a seamless service for customers while driving a culture of peer to peer recognition and respect.
