Had a workshop at work and this is what a head honcho told me about awards and recognition program availability.
"We have been awarding deserving employees for over a year, but there is no reason for anyone other than higher management and the actual employees to know about it. After all, if everyone heard about these awards they will feel bad for not getting it themselves "
Now! there is a new definition for recognition. Ain't he a kind soul to be so worried of his people? Hmph!
