Just found this interesting slant on employee motivation / reward schemes.
I’m not a huge fan of the traditional “Employee of the Month” schemes as these sometimes descend into which manager can shout the loudest about one of their team (and in turn the manager “sharing” it around the team). So, all in all not brilliant for morale.
I’m reminded of something at my kids’ (junior) school where they have a “Posh Table” at lunch time – designed as a reward for about 6 children who behave really well during the week. Great in theory – but watching the children’s faces when they “win” this is a real give away. It’s almost perceived as an embarrassment.
