The infographic below has over a dozen suggestions for ways to reward workers beyond a bonus, such as a handwritten letter, public praise at the next staff meeting or some extra time for a lunch break. The simple act of saying “thank you” or acknowledging the progress made on an assignment will resonate with employees.
