U.S. businesses—including those owned by Black entrepreneurs—are missing a potential windfall by not recognizing employees.
Most workers like to be lauded now and then, particularly when they get praise for an extra effort. Yet their commendable actions much too often get a lukewarm response or none at all by employers.
Experts say companies may do well to create a culture that regularly applauds workers for their extra deeds. They contend such awareness should not just come when employees work harder before an annual performance when such recognition—and a possible raise—is expected or may occur anyway.
