Recognition and Reward

Heartfelt appreciation goes a long way - praise, acknowledgment, and reward. Robert McNamara, former American Secretary of Defense said: "Brains, like hearts, go where they are appreciated."

Rewards and Recognitions is a system where people are acknowledged for their performance and/or contribution in intrinsic or extrinsic ways. A leader understands the importance of letting the team, and the individual members of a team, know that they are truly appreciated. The earth is rewarded with rain and the tribe with grain.

A recent discussion with a life coach challenged the notion of companies that awards Employee of the Month and Employee of the Year, as it could leave other hardworking employees to feel undervalued should they not be nominated and/or considered for such recognition and the accompanying reward. I beg to differ. While every employee is valued and acknowledged as a contributor towards the company's success, certain actions stand out as exceptional, and that deserves a shout-out.

Celebrating each and every employee’s unique wins and valuable contributions are at the heart of showing gratitude and appreciation. All Salties participate in our regular shoutouts, praises, recognition, and rewards. The tribe celebrates the individual and the individual celebrates the tribe. We hold each other in high regard, and we celebrate every moment and action and employee deserving, no matter big or small.
