Workplace Awards

Your Two Cents: Workplace Awards

A company where I was previously employed used to have an awards banquet for some of its staff in one department — imagine a kind of Oscars show (minus the glam) where the only awards were for actors in a leading role. The awards were based on success (measured in money), and all-around merit (kind of like a coach's award in high school sports).

I think recognizing employees in this way can be encouraging for some, but for others it could prove to be discouraging especially if there are office politics involved. What do you think about giving out awards in the office?
