We are all motivated in different ways. Some of us thrive on targets, others get enticed by rewards and some are gratified by a heartfelt thank you. Combining all three approaches is perhaps the best way to create a loyal and productive workforce.
Recognition is a requirement for business success. Every member of your team craves and deserves frequent, in-the-moment recognition. Employees want to know that their efforts, even the small ones, are appreciated. This is not just an exercise in making your employees feel good, either. Employees produce better work when they are recognised for it, affecting your company’s bottom line.
