Managers must realise that no one does anything for nothing.
Everyone needs recognition for their efforts —and because each one of us is very different, the need for recognition depends on our individual character or personality.
Part of achieving is gaining brownie points for just doing.
Napoleon Bonaparte said: “Give me enough medals and l will win you any war.”
Ask anyone who has run in the London Marathon just how much that competitor’s medal means to them.
The sense of achievement is not so much for the doing – but actually being recognised for the doing.
Some of the key elements we implement to establish a rewards and recognition programme include:
- Praise and raise
- Motivate and elevate
- Empower staff to ‘Be the Best’
- Define a Shared Vision
