The online version of a major business journal has published an opinion piece about recognition. The author refers to a poll that shows managers are not giving their employees enough recognition for their work. The author feels this is important, as employees who are not recognized are more apt to leave the company. The author makes three points about the recognition process. Managers should thank their employees right away, and with sincerity. The article has a photo showing a smiling employee.
