Peer-to-peer social recognition is a concept that grew out of newer social technologies, diminishing hierarchy at work, and the increasing diversity of today’s organizations which are comprised of up to five generations.

Employees have varying values, beliefs, drivers and work styles. But they all share one common element — they are all human, so they are motivated and inspired by recognition.

The key to social recognition is the fact that it is “social.” It involves everyone and it is transparent.
