Question 1 of 31

How do you like to be recognized for your accomplishments?

"I had a manager a few years ago who made it a point to write very simple, hand-written notes for her employees when she noticed that we had performed particularly well, from a great customer interaction to completion of a huge project. Every once in awhile, the notes would also include a small gift card to a local restaurant or shop -- just a small token of appreciation. That was the best recognition I could hope for; I don't like to be in the spotlight, so public recognition is a nightmare for me, but knowing that my manager took the time to say thank you in such a personal way made a huge impact on me."
