Thanks for the link Ann. As you know I develop reward and recognition programs for my clients so I just had to let off a little steam over at the Trusted Advisor site.

I think you nailed it by saying the reward and recognition element is a tool that effective managers can use to drive greater performance. The operative word is "effective." Rewards and recognition are no different than a scalpel. In the right hands it can work miracles... in the wrong hands it can be disastrous. Thanks again for the link.

AB - Paul, you sum it up well: Rewards and recognition are a tool that can be applied effectively ... or not. I, too, make my living developing reward programs for clients - but I (like you, too, I suspect) have encountered enough organizations trying to use rewards to get them out of the admittedly difficult job of employee management. It simply doesn't work.
