Tangible Rewards and Recognition (Public)

Public recognition using rewards with financial cost can be effective if the rewards are appreciated and aligned with individual preferences. Expensive events and items that people do not like can actually be demotivating, as can undesired public attention. Some examples of effective rewards are:

  • Team-planned events or celebrations to commemorate project successes

  • Nomination of individuals or teams for monetary or other award programs, either internal or external to the organization

  • Substantial rewards for performance such as clothing, food, or other visible gifts

  • Travel and support for attendance at professional conferences or training classes

  • Promotion or other formal expansion of responsibility
