Kevin Panet on Rewards and Recognition

For a quick review of good practice in providing employees with rewards and recognition, you can look through an 18-slide presentation that Kevin Panet, an executive recruiter at Integrity Staffing Solutions, has posted at slideshare.net.

Some key points:
  • One of the goals of a sound approach to rewards and recognition is to recognize as many people as possible.

  • Align rewards and recognition with intrinsic motivtion.

  • If you don't know what motivates a particular individual, ask.

  • Questions to ask about people who aren't measuring up for recognition:

    • Have they been overlooked?

    • Are they being challenged?

    • Are they aware of opportunities?

    • Do they have the tools and resources necessary to do their job?

    • Do they clearly understand the business "big picture," their team's plan, and how their personal contributions fit into the big picture?
