LOW-COST WAYS TO REWARD EMPLOYEES

Research shows that feeling appreciated – which comes from recognition from others – is one of the top three drivers of employee engagement. Great news is that showing appreciation doesn’t have to cost tons of time or money:

– A sincere word of thanks is very effective.

– Post a thankyou note on their door in their honour.

– Write about them in a company-wide email.

– Give a long lunch, extra break, or compensatory time.

– Honour them at the start of the next staff meeting.

– Give them flowers, a book, or another small gift.

– Invite them to a one-on-one lunch.

– Arrange to have their car washed.

– Give them a card with movie tickets inside.

– Arrange for a boss several levels up to stop by to say thanks.
