Day Maker Recognition Best Practices

June 24, 2010

We had a great Recognition TV webisode yesterday where we shared tips on how you can be a Day Maker in your organization through positivity, recognition and fun. You can watch the video on our Facebook page, in the Recognition Resource Center on our website and read our tips right here on the blog.

We had a lot of great comments from attendees in the chat room who shared their best day making practices. We strongly believe that some of the best recognition ideas come from your peers, so here are those great ideas again! 

"We put cheers cards in an envelope on our common area fridge so everyone has access to them."

"The 'thank you' notes in our department are put on a bulletin board, then the team leader hands them out, along with a DQ buck!"

"We use thanks slips that Managers fill in and give to staff. Then they get to cash them in for gift cards."

"For fun I have set-up "fun days" with my employees where we act silly and play guesstures or some other board game I bring from home. It is a really great morale & team builder."

"We have 45 restaurants, and I use the ePraise to send out to GMs for a good visit or sales!"

"I use the products as drawings for each box of old utility applications that my staff complete in scanning.  They love it!!!"
