While browsing and then reading this book, I learned that there are more than basic ways to reward employees. Of course, the basic ways have a section or two in the book and there are some great reminders in rewarding employees. In reading on, I found that there are many more ideas and concepts to appreciating others and/or rewarding them. I recommend this book as good reading for any manager / leader who is looking for some other opportunities to appreciate your good workers (the case studies are great and offer some great ideas). All through the book there's reference about the tie-in between "recognition (reward) and performance (highly efficient employees)."
