  • Building and maintaining a great team is the key to your community's or company's success. Putting that fact aside, building and maintaining a happy motivated team is KEY to YOUR SUCCESS. Today I am sharing with you No-Cost and Low-Cost Ways to Reward Your Employees.

    There's no time like the present to reward and recognize our employees for dedication and hard work. Believe me; I know that the average budget for such employee recognition is usually slim to non-existent. Of course it's always preferable to offer a "cost" reward to our hard-working achievers when it's appropriate and feasible to do so; but if you're faced with the need to get creative with your employee recognition programs there are plenty of low- to no-cost ways to say thanks for a job well done. Low- and no-cost rewards are a great way to build and maintain morale throughout the year. Here are just a few of my favorites.

    Put it in writing. Instead of just handing out paychecks and mumbling "thanks" try to take a few min-utes and reflect back on the week first. Recall something each employee did and write a quick note of thanks. You can even simply jot something nice on the check stub or envelope that recognizes an em-ployee's special accomplishments for the week. My notes are usually no more than five to ten words. I made this a habit every week when I was a Property Manager.

    Call an employee into your office just to say thanks. Don't discuss anything else. It takes two minutes or less. If you have a little extra time on your hands and if it's appropriate, it's a nice gesture to ask the employee if there's anything specific they'd like to discuss while they have your undivided attention. The first time you call them in they may be a little nervous :)

    Post a thank-you note on the employee's office door, desk or general work area for everyone else to see. Leaving flowers or a plant on a valued employee's desk is also a nice way to say thanks in front of everyone. You'll be surprised at how the rest of the team will continue the good will.

    Have the employee's car washed in the parking lot during lunch. Leave a brief note under a windshield wiper that reads "A sparkling car for a sparkling performer! Thanks for a job well done!" I hired teenagers who lived in the community to wash the cars. Recognition isn't trivial when it comes to job satisfaction. In fact, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources recently conducted a survey on the subject. Sixty-eight percent of the respondents said it's important to them that their work is appreciated by others; sixty-three percent agreed that most people would like more recognition; and sixty-seven percent said that most people need appreciation for their work. Isn't it time to thank your employees for their dedication and support? There's no reason not to - now that you can do it without breaking your budget!
