YOUR TIP FOR SEPTEMBER 19, 2011


[h3]Off on another business trip? Reward staff left behind. [/h3]
WHY? A trade show or buying trip may seem routine to you. But for those stuck in the office, you're one lucky person to have escaped the store.

HOW? Authors Adrian Gostick and Chester Elton tell a tale in their book A Carrot A Day about a manager who left $5 and a note for his assistant when he went on a week-long business trip. The note explained the money was to buy her a cookie a day to show he recognized her hard work and to thank her for picking up the slack. The result? Great staff morale.
