Here is a fun idea from a reader of the weekly employee recognition tips:
Pamela Gill of Kearns Improvement District in Utah says the district has a garden gnome that acts as a traveling trophy. They held a Name the Gnome contest (or was it Gname the Gnome?). The winner was Gerome the Roaming Gnome.
Pamela says people receive Gerome as recognition of:
- extra effort,
- going above and beyond in their duties,
- for an act of kindness, or
- anything deemed praiseworthy.
They also have a poster that lists the names of employees who have received Gerome (or should we say hosted a visit from him). The poster provides a permanent record of Gerome’s travels.
I love it! Now, let’s hear your ideas…
