Recognizing Your Fellow Workplace Heroes

This may be a bit too out there for some of you, but the folks at Zappos have an interesting way of encouraging employees to recognize their coworkers’ efforts at work (definitely a worthwhile goal). Each employee is given a $50.00 monthly allowance to award a colleague as a bonus as part of its monthly Hero Award program.The executive team then picks an overall hero from all the candidates.The winning workplace hero is announced with a mini-parade while the song “I Need a Hero” plays on the office sound system.The hero of the month gets a covered parking space for a month, a $150 Zappos gift card and, as befitting any true hero, a cape.
