In today’s ultra-competitive work environments, organisations with the winning edge are ones that have skilled and well-trained staff. However, even the best employees won’t perform well if they are not motivated enough. That’s why employee recognition is so valuable and should be an innate part of any company’s culture. It makes employees happier, improves employee retention, cultivates a culture of self-improvement and boosts morale.
Our Employee Recognition – Appreciating Your Workforce course is a professional development course that will give you the tools and skills to craft a recognition program that will keep your most valuable resource — your employees — inspired, motivated and ultimately happy!
In this rewards and recognition course, you will learn how to build relationships, manage performance and encourage communication, and the value of recognising your employees’ worth — from interns and contractors to managers and supervisors.
You will also learn about showing appreciation; the criteria, schedules, guidelines, formulation and implementation of employee recognition programs, and how to develop personal action plans.
On completion of this course, you will have learnt how to improve workplace productivity, enhance loyalty, promote collaboration and give constructive feedback to your organisation’s biggest asset

When you study with Australian Online Courses, you will be assessed using a competency-based training method.
Competency-based training focuses on the achievement of skills and knowledge against set criteria to ensure your competency is industry relevant. You will not be benchmarked against other students.
If you do not achieve a competency result on your first attempt, you have two more attempts to pass your assessment. So, you have three attempts in total to obtain a competency result.
In this way, you can complete your course in your own time and at your own pace with the assistance of unlimited tutor support.
In this course, you will be assessed via multiple-choice questions to determine your mastery of details and specific knowledge gained during your studies to achieve a ‘competent’ or ‘not yet competent’ result.
Benefits of Multiple-Choice Assessments
Appropriate for assessing students’ mastery of details and specific knowledge.
Can be used to assess both simple knowledge and complex concepts.
Questions can be answered quickly to accurately assess a students’ mastery of many topics relatively quickly.
Assessment can be quickly and reliably scored to achieve a ‘competent’ or ‘not yet competent’ result.
As the answers are visible, multiple-choice questions offer the opportunity for the continuation of the learning process, offering educational value.
