A Tip From a Reader

Jane Metivier, a  Service & Sales Supervisor for Wells Fargo, shares this tip:

“I have mailed a Thank You note to their home address when they go above and beyond. We have cards given to us to hand out, but I found a bigger impact when they get them with their family.”

Jane is a supervisor who has learned to gauge reaction when deciding the best way to recognize! 

It is easy to see why a note of praise sent to the home may have a bigger effect than one delivered at work — if you remember that employee recognition is about visibility and validity. People want to been seen, and they want their work to be valued. 

So many families really don’t understand what their loved ones do at work all day. Send notes of recognition to their homes and you can help them show that what they do is important

Do you have an employee recognition tip to offer? Tell me about it!
