Building up your employees professional esteem through acknowledging their good work and through congratulating them will feel motivational for them. This will also encourage a high standard of performance in the future.
Thank your employees for the hard work they’ve put into their tasks and give praise where it’s been earned.
Shoutouts show your employees their work and efforts are both noticed and valued. Make sure that you’re also encouraging the rest of the team to give their colleagues shoutouts, because this builds a stronger team morale and encourages collaboration among the group.
Examples of shoutouts to share with your team:
- Great job on acting quickly and resolving XYZ issue!
- Thanks for stepping in and providing answers for our frustrated parent.
- I’ve noticed you put in extra work for ______, I appreciate it.
