Every Friday My company has a mandatory meeting to go over production stats from the prior week. It’s always the same issues and we are always told of how we can increase our performance. Not too long ago we went into the meeting room as usual, and seen refreshments on the tables, and along with a small tiny box at every seat. We were all confused at what was happening but sat down and were anxiously awaiting for the GM to come in. He entered the room, told us that our performance had increased 23% and that we had the meetings tokeep us motivated. The small boxes were pins that said ” Thank You ” and we even got to spend the next few hours mingling with one another. Of course we talked shop and ways to be more efficient. That meeting changed the company that day! Just a little ” Praise ” can go a long way!!
