- Invite a senior executive to attend a team meeting and personally congratulate your employees on a recent success.
- Publicize great performance or recognize achievement by sending a press release to your hometown paper or trade publication. Other options: Blog about it or post it on your organization’s intranet.
- Thank the person’s family for its support when an employee has had to work long hours or travel extensively. Send a handwritten note to the home. That shows you recognize the burden on everyone.
