“People crave positive feedback, recognition they put in extra effort, acknowledgement of leaders and peers, the glow that comes with knowing an achievement has been seen, appreciated and celebrated.”

Yep, you read that correctly. Many of your employees will feel more appreciated if you thank them for what they’ve done, than if you give them a bonus but say nothing.
