When it comes to recognizing employees on the spot for outstanding work, many firms have come up with instant recognition programs that allow staff to give each other a pat on the back and a small reward to say thanks for a job well done.

Consulting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers has added a twist to on-the-spot recognition for its 3,300 Canadian employees in the form of a scratch-and-win card.

“It’s what we call the Thumbs Up program,” said Wayne McFarlane, human capital leader for PwC. “It recognizes people on-the-spot with a small reward for doing extra work.”
