We believe that recognition from peer is the superlative form of validation that your work is appreciated and here are the tips that you can start tomorrow.

– Post-its:  Don’t just write “Thank you“ write message with what the person contribute to and how you or company appreciate it.

– Office trophy:  trophy, stuffed animal or figure that you can pass around the office, and give it to the employee who has done great job this week and let them keep it for a week. After a week, let that employee decide the peer who has done the same.

–  Old fashion but most effective:  peer to peer communication is most effective and strongest.  Let them know that they have done great job.
