The author also reflected upon the tradition of graduation. The giving of gifts for those children moving from one grade to the next and for those who were at the top of their class this became even more important. "In the store she was the person of the moment" (835) and customers lavished her with nickels and sometimes even dimes. She could also feel the love from her family.

Recognizing employees for accomplishments such as finishing a major project, reaching sales targets or providing excellent customer service can be an important motivating factor. Set goals for workers to strive for and offer rewards for reaching them. This could be in the form of an employee of the month scheme, a bonus, or a promotion. Some companies conduct meetings where employees are recognised for good work in front of their colleagues. This can help motivate all the workers in the business to strive for success.
Since there is little or no difference between the salaries increases of employees who meet production goals and those who do not, some employees have said they are not motivated to achieve the goals, even if they are capable of doing so. The company must ensure that employees meeting company goals are rewarded with bonuses, salary increases, or other incentives that are greater and more appealing than those received by employees not meeting the goals. The company could further differentiate the
Although the achievement culture contained a few drawbacks, there were a few perks that allowed the organization to succeed. Many department managers had a goal oriented mentality, this mentality allowed them to become creative in how to meet their goals. When sales goals were met, bonuses and rewards were given to department managers. This type of personal initiative gives employees a reason to work and to want to help the organization. Additionally, when sales goals are met there is usually an increase payroll for the company; this increase in payroll allows workers to work more hours and be more financially stable.
Have a one-on one meeting with the employees and leaders of the departments that are not meeting expectations to provide additional training, corrective actions, or otherwise work together with that particular team to develop a plan to improve, which would further empower the teams (Newstrom, 2015). For the teams who are meeting production goals in their department develop a rewards and recognition program so that the department or specific employees who have gone above and beyond could be recognized. This monthly awards and recognition program could replace the monthly financial bonus by providing another type of motivational and reward factor, which could be understood through the Equity Model, in which the employees would still see reward outcomes from their monthly inputs, in addition to the potential of a financial bonus (Newstrom,
While everyone may want to be rewarded for a job well done, everyone has different motivations that need to be taken into consideration. Everyone wants to be recognized for their performance and meeting or exceeding standards in the workplace. We have been groomed since infancy to expect a reward for meeting small achievements and major milestones, whether it was a celebratory smile from our parents for eating mashed carrots as a toddler, or walking across the stage to receive our diploma at graduation.
After three weeks of searching, we’ve finally found a business offering ball caps and jackets for the 25 employees in our company. The company logo will be placed on the back of the jacket with the employee name on the front.

I will miss you. I love you, and I will remember to pick my battles. ☺
The bowler hat has been a part of visual culture ever since it was designed and created during the reign of Queen Victoria in 1849 for Edward Coke, a British soldier and politician. Since then the bowler hat has become symbolic in visual and popular culture, being featured in books, films and logos, as well as being used within politics in order to relate to other classes, as well as bypassing gender stereotypes. These hats were originally used as head protection for gamekeepers as their previous headgear – the passing trees kept knocking off the top hat as they rode on horseback. The hat itself became popularised with almost all classes, bypassing the stereotypes that had been present beforehand, which coincidentally has occurred in the form of bypassing gender stereotypes as well.
Julie Jacobson’s presentation, “Celebrating Success: Recognizing Municipal Employees” is centered on the concept of motivating and retaining its employees. The presentation states that recognition influences public employees’ behavior and serves as a strong motivator. Essentially, by recognizing an employee’s hard work, they will become more productive and boost their morale. Jacobson goes on to list the many ways to recognize employees.

The recognition of employee is brought about by offers that carry a weight heavier than compensation in HRM. Human capital is considered absolutely vital for organizational success (Marriot 2001). In organization culture, cultural artifacts such as award ceremonies pushes employees to be more competitive and therefore increase productivity (Higgins & McAllaster 2004).
