Question: “My manager wants to have an employee appreciation event. The problem is half the staff would be unable to attend during the workday due to the nature of the business. I suggested that we select who attends based on performance indicators. HR says we ‘can’t do that because employee appreciation is not the same as rewards and recognition.’ The HR department suggested that we draw names so everyone has a chance to attend. I disagree. Why should poor performers be rewarded?” — Nancy

Question: “My company advisor has asked me to write a book on company morale and ways to improve it, because I have implemented a team game that has been very successful over the years. I have no idea where to start or what traps to avoid. I’m an office girl, not a writer. Are there classes I should take or companies to approach?” — Jocelyn K. Mylott

Question: “We have had monthly admin meetings for the past six months. The senior admin is now asking for our input about how and what should be discussed during those meetings. I'm curious as to what other admins do in their meetings. What do you discuss?” — Barb

Question: “I recently received a performance review from a new manager. I don’t agree with the results and received minimal feedback on my performance. I refused to sign the performance review, and I wrote my comments as to why. If called by the division head or HR to explain my comments, how should I respond?” — Anonymous
