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.

Where to start that is the question? There have been so many changes since I started this challenge. I think the best place to start will be from the beginning.   I first discovered Hannes's web site "property school" on my search for property investments and Read more...

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...

Wealth Insight 2009-11-06 Where does today’s money come from?   I’m not talking about historical money right now, though that is an interesting tale! For now I am just looking at where today’s money comes from. The money in your pocket. The money owing on your bond.   Okay, you worked for it. Or you borrowed it.   But where did it come from?   Yes, your employer. The bank.   But before that?   It was created out of nothing.   Once... Read more...

We started off badly with a poor telephone system that could not function properly over the internet followed by an electricity crisis, but after investing in ourselves we enjoyed the Kaizen Challenge very much. It has really changed our whole outlook and mindset on life, in so many ways. In the first place we realized Read more...

Wealth Insight 2010-01-01 Something to stick on your fridge No, it’s not a fat photo. It’s a list of some health basics that, if you follow them in 2010, can make a lifelong difference to your health. As always the truth is very simple yet somehow a great surprise. Here goes! Margarine is not a health food. Nor is any processed supermarket cooking oil. Your best bets are olive oil, coconut oil and believe it or not, saturated fats like butter. Processed carbohydrates like... Read more...
