Bellevue University Organizational Reward and Recognition Programs Discussion

There are many different types of reward and recognition programs. Each organization designs its programs based on organization size, available resources, alignment with organizational goals, and a host of other considerations. Analyzing and comparing different programs give managers insights into how successful programs are designed, as well as providing ideas for how their own programs might be improved.


  1. Follow this link to access Starbuck’s Recognition Guide and research the company’s formal employee recognition programs, located under the Performance Awards tab at the top of the page.
  2. Now, follow these links and Service Excellence Employee Recognition Program to review two other companies’ information on employee benefits/reward and recognition programs.
  3. Use course content and outside research to complete the following instructions:
    1. Compare and contrast Starbuck’s formal employee recognition program(s) with the employee recognition program(s) offered by American Fork. Discuss each of the following areas as you compare and contrast the programs:
      1. What organizational values do each of the programs support and recognize?
      2. What is the specific purpose of each of the programs?
      3. Who is eligible to receive rewards in each program, including the criteria for recognition (e.g. – behaviors, accomplishments, etc.)?
      4. Describe the awards and explain the method used to select the award or recognition recipients, both quantitative and qualitative (if applicable).
    2. Synthesize the results of your work comparing and contrasting these recognition programs to develop an “ideal” employee recognition program. Identify the attributes of each element you incorporate in your recognition program, and explain how they would make your program a success.
    3. Present a plan for communicating the recognition program to employees.
  4. Present and defend your comparison and contrast of the recognition programs, along with your “ideal” employee recognition program and communication plan, in a six-page (minimum) paper.
