The bottom line on recognition is that most employers aren’t doing enough of it.

And, that’s because organizations still prefer the more structured once-a-year rewards approach over the “touchy, feely” pats on the back and daily congratulatory affirmations.

But, believe it or not, it’s the small things like a chocolate bar or a scribbled thank-you note that can have a greater impact on employees. And a little creativity can go a long way for busy managers.
