Staff morale is like rocket fuel. Without it, you’ll never get a project off the ground. Your team doesn’t mind hard work. What they’ll resent, however, is when it goes unappreciated. That’s why any company that truly wants to be successful should take time to invest in a recognition program that gives acrylic or glass trophies to their top performing players. These awards serve two purposes. First, they recognize hard work and achievement. Second but perhaps even more importantly, they inspire other team members to achieve. Recognition awards honor past accomplishments but they also plant the seeds for future success. Achievement is like a garden. It must be watered for anything to grow.
