A personal hand-written note of thanks or recognition goes a long way. Make it genuine and specific to what the team member had offered or accomplished. This is one of the most powerful ways to recognize an employee and it doesn’t cost anything except time and effort.

I agree with the comments – it depends on the employee and what their personality/nature is, and what they need to thrive or are comfortable with. And sometimes, a simple, genuine thank you, goes a long way…..

I agree with you Martina that honestly an unprovoked and genuine thank you can mean a lot. It doesn’t always have to be a big deal or fancy gift. Just regular, meaningful recognition will help create a positive relationship with staff.

I think this really depends on the employee, everyone is unique. Some people crave public recognition, while this terrifies others for example. The best way is to know your employees, and recognize them accordingly.

Ask your employees which of those ways would make them feel most recognized and appreciated? Maybe it’s a combination of Employee of the Month AND some PD of choice. Evolution has to occur and follow-through is vital.

Exactly, the first step is actually knowing our teams, and what they like/prefer. Thanks, Diana!

Meaningful recognition is individual. There is no ‘one size fits all’ solution. Ask your employees what is most meaningful to them.

I agree Candace. A manager needs to build a relationship and rapport with their staff so they can understand what is valuable to them and then use that information to help guide them when rewarding and recognizing their efforts.
