Want to keep your top talent happily engaged and on board for the long term? Want to inspire your other employees to reach their full potential? It’s easy!

You’ll garner some great information and your people will feel respected and valued. Win-win!
In the spirit of “different strokes for different folks,” ask: What kind of recognition or appreciation would be meaningful to you? (Some employees prefer a private rather than public acknowledgement. Some would rather have paid time off rather than the best parking place for a month.)
