Reach for the Right Reward! Reach for the Right Reward!
The glamour of an awards night can be a highlight of your working year, especially if you or your organization pick up a prize or two. But be warned, "All that glitters is not gold"!

While some awards can boost your organization's reputation and profile, others may have little or no value to you. Our article, The Benefits of Company Awards, explores the pros and cons of chasing accolades, and how to identify the ones to aim for.

There are ways of rewarding people's contributions to your team or company that are truly meaningful. Find out how to properly recognize people's value with our articles, Helping Your People Find Purpose in Their Work and A Bit of Perfume.
