Ideas for Managers

Here's how you can use "Recognize Me!" materials to boost morale and performance at your workplace.



The number one reason employees leave their jobs is that they don't feel recognized or rewarded for their efforts.

Show Appreciation

Recognize Me! provides it all!



Giving and receiving appreciation enhances communication, the key to good relationships between managers and workers.




People leave managers, not companies, and they usually share why they are leaving, and their dissatisfaction at an exit interview!

If individuals or teams want to express appreciation to each other, they give one part of the note to their coworkers. The other par t is given to managers to inform them of the praise their employees earned.

Use Praise Pad notes to publicly recognize good performance. The smaller portions can be placed in drawings for prizes. The larger portions can be given directly to the employee or posted on a "Bravo Board" for everyone to see.

At annual review time, the notes can help you remember how your staff performed throughout the year. After it has been presented to your employee, the por tion describing achievement is returned to you and placed in that person's file.

To promote teamwork, you may present coupons to each team member who's earned recognition. They can display the larger portions and save smaller ones until the whole team has accumulated enough for a pizza party or doughnut day.

Creative use of Praise Pad notes increases their effectiveness. Ask employees to number both halves of a coupon. On the larger part, they write about one good thing a coworker has done. On the smaller part, they put that person's name. You read larger note aloud and let staff guess who's described. (Match numbers to confirm.) It's a fun way to compliment "good deeds" and those who do them..
