Question 1 of 32

How do you like to be recognized for your accomplishments?

"I really dislike being the center of attention, so I don't find public recognition to be particularly motivating. My last manager was in the habit of giving employees simple, hand-written notes that expressed appreciation for going the extra mile or accomplishing a larger goal, and sometimes these notes were accompanied with gift cards. They were simple gestures, but it always meant a lot to me to hear from my boss that my work was noticed and appreciated."
