What I Think: Taking Notice

A compliment for work well done, a note of thanks, a well-earned perk—all of these sweeten the work experience and motivate us to excel. It’s a simple act—paying attention to the good things people do. Workers thrive on a steady diet of recognition and reward. Top managers know this and are quick to take notice consistently and publicly of the meritorious contributions of their employees.

Today, more than ever, it’s important for us to take time to acknowledge the people around us who anticipate our needs, and make our path a little smoother. How often is our work supported by the efforts of others? Collaboration helps organizations excel, and together, each personal contribution is magnified by the whole. Recognition reinforces the connective tissue that unifies us, and it gives us the buoyancy we need when the waters get rough.
