"Simply a great book! This book has shown me that the manner and method in which recognition is delivered makes the difference. It's one thing to pass out awards, but quite another to have a program that increases engagement and commitment, reduces turnover, improves morale and benefits the bottom line. I will use these insights every day within our organization and with our clients."
