In a recent Gallup workplace survey, employees were asked about their most meaningful and memorable recognition. “The most memorable recognition comes most often from an employee’s manager (28%), followed by a high-level leader or CEO (24%), the manager’s manager (12%), a customer (10%) and peers (9%). Worth mentioning, 17% cited “other” as the source of their most memorable recognition.” (See Employee Recognition: Low Cost, High Impact)
