A simple thank-you is all we need

What’s the most satisfying reward you can receive for a job well done?

Respondents to a “SmartPulse” survey, conducted by Smart-Brief on Leadership, were roughly split three ways. They said:

  • Cash—30.2%
  • Praise and expressions of thanks from my team and my customers—29.75%
  • A handwritten thank-you note from an executive/leader I respect—27.85%

Only 8% said they wanted public accolades or awards, and less than 5% said they didn’t need external rewards at all.

It’s not surprising people would want a cash reward. What’s more enlightening is the fact that nearly as many said they craved praise or a handwritten thank-you note.
