3 Reasons to Recognize Your Employees Over Twitter
First and Foremost, It SHOULD NEVER replace the handwritten note made famous by Jack Welch, but for quick “atta-boys” or “atta-girls”, it can go a long way
1 – Quick – 140 characters, bam. It’s a perfect medium for quick recognition for a job well done. I’ve seen so many managers get nervous and hesitate to properly recognize their employees…but this is a overwhelmingly easy way to give quick feedback.
2 – Public – I would love for my followers to see that I did a great job at “making a coherent argument for an idea in a meeting…” A simple @benphoster, and I’m working nights to come up with better arguments.
3 – New – As of right now…no one is doing this. Show your team that you’re one of those “forward-thinking” manager types that they’ve been hearing so much about. Set up a #tag for your team to allow the group to publicly see the motivation.
BUT NEVER LET IT REPLACE A HANDWRITTEN NOTE!
