“Change is the only constant” (attributed to Heraclitus of Ephesus). How often have you heard this phrase or some variation? People use it to explain (or excuse) shifts in policy, values and decisions. But it’s not terribly inspiring! Why bother learning a new way of doing things if it’ll just change again? And worse, why learn if we won’t even get any recognition for trying?
While success in anything comes from a combination of factors, recognition is a golden opportunity to turbo-charge success. The sad thing is that many organisations overlook it entirely. But it doesn’t have to be a big, difficult, expensive thing to embed in your culture. There are simple, effective and low-cost approaches that will make your employees feel valued and engaged.
