Easy Genie: Are You Too Busy to Give Employee Recognition?

Easy Genie: Are you too busy to give employee recognition?

These Quick & Easy Ideas Will Help Maximize Your Time!

Your day starts before the sun is up and before the rest of the troops file in to the office. It ends with the man in the moon peeking through your office window. It’s just you and the hum of fluorescent lighting remaining… In-between, you’ve attended meetings, answered calls, and tended to your ever-overflowing inbox. You’re saving the world—putting out one fire after another—and, let’s face it, you’re exhausted.What you really need is a break—but your team really needs YOU. They need feedback, direction, advice, encouragement, and appreciation. Neglect your team and you neglect the one entity that holds the key to your success. So, what’s a time-challenged manager to do?


Keep your ear (or someone else’s) to the ground.

You can’t always have the face time you want or need to have with your team, which makes it tougher to plug in to what and how they’re doing. But, you can enlist a team leader or confidant who can help keep you up to date and aware—of the victories and challenges alike. Schedule regular time with that individual for a pulse check and you can ensure that you’ll won’t miss out on the big things, the little things, or anything in between.


Gather an arsenal.

If you don’t even have time for a lunch break, how on earth are you going to get to the card store to pick up everyday notes for your team? If you have a Cheers Kit on hand, you won’t need to! A single kit fits neatly on any desk and puts employee recognition right within reach. These cards are designed for a short, quick note, so you don’t need to spend a lot of time writing.


Take it on the go.

Keep a Peel & Stick Note Set in your planner or portfolio and you can do drive-by recognition whenever you need to. You’re always on your way to somewhere…make a quick stop along way and you’ll make someone’s day by showing you noticed. If you’re looking for a more tangible reward, Collect Your Flair is a solution that’s just as easy. Keep a handful of Flair Wear in your pocket and you have on-the-spot recognition that lets your team members show off their awesomeness!


Get everyone involved.

Guess what? You don’t have to do it all yourself! Peer recognition is just as valuable as recognition from managers. Shout Outs are our favorite tool, but if you already have a Cheers Kit, you can keep it in a central area and give everyone access to the notes.Looking for more tools for busy managers? Click here to see our entire collection of managers’ tools.
