The MarvinHR De-Brief – Episode 4

Marvin Podcast

The Power of Recognition – More Important Than Rewards?

This episode dives into the concept of “Recognition” as the Second Engagement Factor. Host Saarrah reminisces while enjoying a fruity Oasis Tropical drink, which reminds her of her childhood in France.

The discussion explores how recognition, even more than rewards, can be a game-changer for employee motivation. It covers:

  • Public vs. Private Recognition: When to compliment publicly and offer private feedback.
  • Constructive Criticism: How to guide and offer solutions when giving feedback.
  • Authenticity and Specificity: The importance of genuine and specific recognition.
  • Understanding Your Team: Recognising individual preferences for public or private recognition (think “Love Languages” at work!).
  • Making Time Matters: Highlighting the power of a leader simply spending time with their team members.
  • To Lead People Walk Behind Them: Director and host Nick talks about working with Jack Bendat and Andrew Forrest and says there is nothing better a leader can do than make time for people on their team.
