The philosophy of  employee recognition presented in Make Their Day shows you that effective recognition has more to do with building recognition into the daily routine of the workplace, and less to do with celebrating recognition as a separate “special event.” Cindy Ventrice outlines the key elements of effective recognition — praise, opportunity, respect, and thanks — and explains why good working relationships are at the core of all effective recognition. To read an excerpt…

Make Their Day! shows how everyone within an organization can contribute to the process of developing employee recognition practices that create the meaningful relationships employees need and want.

Make Their Day! is designed to help anyone interested in improving employee recognition by spending less money to obtain better results.
