Employee Recognition-Bright Idea #5

When you want to recognize an employee for an accomplishment, be creative. A gift certificate to a local restaurant is fine.....but why not "think outside of the box." For example, you want to show your appreciation to a mechanical engineer for a design modification that saved significant dollars. Ask Human Resources to let you know where the engineer went to school. Let's say he graduated from Iowa State University. Go to the University's web site, click on the bookstore tab , and order him a sweatshirt, stadium seat, or something else with the school's logo on it-I guarantee that this will impress him.

Upcoming posts will focus on effective leadership.
