A number of years ago I started an internal award for recognizing a team member who goes above and beyond. The difference was that it wasn’t I, the team leader, who decided the recipient. Instead, it was a peer-driven award. The recognition is via a plaque posted in the team area with engraved plates of the names of the award recipients, plus an announcement on the larger organization’s website. I’m pleased to see that the award is continuing, even after I’ve since long moved to a new assignment. That tells me it’s working.
