In the June 2nd edition of USA Today, I noticed one of their polls at the bottom of the "Money Section." It asked the question, "Who appreciates you the most at work?" Here were the poll results: (1079 adults over 18 were surveyed)
- 30% Supervisor
- 16% Executives
2) Gifts create a lasting reminder of your appreciation (gift cards in the amount that is affordable to your company)
3) Low cost gestures can create a story Creating a story will create memory that employees can pass on to friends, family and colleagues. (A photo session with the president, renting a nice car for the employee to drive for a week)
4) Food is always in good taste
5) Time off is universally appreciated
What are some of the ways you have recognized and rewarded your employees lately? What has worked for your company?
