Note comment from HR VP from Rock Bottom Brewery and the problems she ran into. Need to really think through what your goals are and what the issues are. Good luck - let me know if I can help at all.

Excellent post, Paul--Thanks!

Before falling into a black hole of ongoing monthly recognition take a look at my post yesterday - monthly may not be the appropriate time frame or the appropriate way to provide feedback.

Thanks, Rudra. Will get back to you for more info.

It does work. we have started the EOM in our company after the Gallup survey gave us very low figures in recognition. Its how we frame the policies to not to make it look as a forceful thing being done by the team leaders for their members.
We planned for 2 phases - Began with the initiative within the Head office and later percolating it down to the others. Secondly, we encouraged the team leaders to recognise their team members first then moving on to recognising members of other functions. Will be able to share more if required.

Is there any "Employee of the Month" program that works?
Comment by S. Max Brown on August 4, 2009 at 9:20pm
The challenge for all of us is this: How do we inspire employees without selling to them? I hate being sold to, but I love being inspired by great leadership. Unfortunately, recognition and employee engagement have quickly become management words that will lose their value if we aren't careful to show how important they are to people throughout the organization. The C-suite and the front line all want to know "What's in it for me?" We need to answer without jargon to make our work meaningful to those we hope to inspire.

Love it, David.

I had not heard of this term before but it rings true and I like it

I even expereinced "hostmanship" yesterday from a server at my hotel in New Orleans which I wrote up in my blog.

Appreciate the new insights.

I so much appreciate you bringing back what your keys on leadership strength and on courtesy. You reminded me of some of the work I have appreciated for a few years now on hostmanship. Click here for a PDF overview of their philosophy and approach.
