Ways to Reward People

Praise and rewards can do wonders to bolster an employee’s self-confidence and morale. No one can deny the effect praise and recognition can have on people. Even with your family at home, there are many ways you can reward people for a job well done.

When you praise someone, you let them know you’re aware of their hard work. You acknowledge they’ve put forth a great effort to accomplish something and you’re celebrating with them for their accomplishment.
  • Be sincere in your praise. Don’t praise a worker merely to make them feel better. This is even more important to remember with family members. If your praise is insincere, you may be considered manipulative, and you don’t want to give that impression.

  • Give praise when it’s due.You cannot follow the old adage, “Better late than never,” when it comes to praising someone. Express your praise as quickly as you can when you see that someone has done something praiseworthy.

  • Be specific about your praise. Sure, you can tell someone they did a great job, but what was so great about it? “Your research paper was direct, to the point, and full of facts,” sounds much better than telling them they had a nice paper.

  • Praise them in front of others. Giving someone a pat on the back in private may make a person feel good for a few minutes. Recognizing their contribution or success during a staff meeting will extend that good feeling into days, if not weeks.
There’s a double benefit to praising people in front of others: public praise may also encourage others to work harder as well.
 
As with genuinely praising an employee or family member when they’ve done well, there are other ways to reward them without having to spend money.
 
Here are some other ways you can reward people for a job well done:
 
1.    Reduce their supervision. Some people are happier and do much better work when they’re allowed to work on their own. Giving an employee more freedom can be an excellent reward.
  • By giving your employees less supervision, you’re letting them know they’re trusted and you have confidence in their abilities.

  • If you truly trust your employee to do their work without supervision, allow them the flexibility to work from home on occasion. Of course, whether or not you can allow your employees to work at home will depend on the work they do.
2.    Give your team members who go above and beyond the call of duty a new title. Job titles don’t always have to mean more money. Sometimes receiving a title means more than getting a few more dollars in their paycheck. It shows that you’re pleased with their work.
 
3.    Publicly recognize people that do their job well. At your next staff meeting, present that person with a certificate. Create a bulletin board in the staff lounge that has photographs of honored employees to continue to recognize them for their good work.
 
4.    Encourage your team by giving them discount coupons to local businesses in your area.This could be a free movie and popcorn at the movie theater, reduced entrance at a family park, or a coupon for a free turkey around the holidays.
 
When employees feel like they matter, they’re much more willing to give their all for a company.
 
Use some of these ways to reward people for a job well done. Not only will your team enjoy their job and the workplace much more, but you’ll find they’re more productive as well. Recognize and reward a job well done and your company will ultimately reap the benefits.

Wow, what an incredible journey!  I started the challenge during a very busy time in my life, but I decided to start when I received the email about it instead of putting it off until a ‘quieter’ time because there probably would never be a ‘quieter’ time and I didn’t want Read more...

MY INTENTION IS THAT YOU (HANNES) AND YOUR WIFE FEAST ON THE BELOW, AS THIS IS WHAT YOU HAVE DONE FOR ME, MY FAMILY AND EVERYONE WE INFLUENCE….. ENJOY ! BEFORE Kaizen Challenge I had invested heavily in myself and am a student of Antony Robbins. I took his advice which stated…”Find a Financial Guru, and role-model him” I took his advice and in late 2004 I started doing your training and this has Read more...

Doing this in itself is a kaizen moment for me. To write about my feelings, growth, experiences, perceptions and inhibitions is not something that I usually do. To be very honest I have had a dreading idea, that you might come up with a task that is all but part of my comfort zone. Knowing this and having the experience of the firewalk and what that Read more...

I cried to God for years and asked him to free me from the slavery of using force in my working environment and everything that is financial related. Of course I didn’t use the exact words then, but I experienced the slavery of working day and night and to still bring in only a small and very limited amount of money each month. I know what that Read more...

Hannes, firstly I want to thank you for helping me in finding myself again. I say again because as you rightly said that as you grow older you forget you childhood dreams. The things that really mattered for you no matter what someone else thought about it.   Thinking about those days gives me a tingling feeling through my spine, because before Read more...
