"I agree Kellce!  Also, timeliness in your recognition-SUPER IMPORTANT!  If you recognize someone for something they did a week later, it doesn't hold as much weight."

I am cautious of generational stereotypes while being sensitive to age differences. As a 56 year old person I live in 2011 and love my iPad and mobile computing and social networking. I have 19 year old twins and a 21 year old son and I see so much differences with them. I see 60 year olds who feel entitled to lots complain about 20-somethings feeling so entitled. I encourage you to read Jennifer Deal's book, Retiring The Generation Gap.

Hi David,

In order to have employee engagement, you need to listen to employees and their ideas. For example, do you offer weekly or bi-weekly Q&A sessions with for your employees with the complanies leadership team. When we listen to our employees suggestions and ideas and put them into place employees are happier and stay at your company longer. If you don't follow through on the suggestions, it can take moral down and have the adverse affect. Since wer are a global company, we need to make sure we commuicate at that level. Whatever we are doing at our corporate headquarters, we are doing at all of our other locations.
