While motivated employees pass on their goodwill and enthusiasm to the customers, disgruntled employees can suck the life out of the processes they perform. In this article we are going to discuss a few ideas of employee recognition which are not going to break your bank but which will keep your employee engaged and motivated at the same time.

  2. You can make a sudden visit along with the CEO or other high executives and thank the employee in person.
