How do you like to be recognized for your accomplishments?
How to Answer
We all like recognition in some way for our accomplishments in the workplace. Share with the interviewer how you would want credit for your hard work. Through gifts? Financial perks? Public recognition? Kind words? Title promotions?
"I had a manager a few years ago who made it a point to write simple, hand-written notes for her employees when she noticed that we had performed particularly well, whether it was a great customer interaction or the completion of a huge project. Sometimes she even included a small gift card to a local store or restaurant. That was the best recognition I could hope for -- knowing that my manager took the time to say thank you in such a personal way made a huge impact on me."
"I am very much an over-achiever and find that the best way for me to be recognized for a job well done is through words of kindness and recognition. I am easily encouraged, and the best reward for me is to know that my hard work is noticed."
