Derek reminds us that recognition is designed to be public. Few tools in our total reward workbox permit open disclosure and even group celebration.

Interesting, too, that he described a situation where a well-intentioned attempt to improve morale and increase engagement got pushback from owners. That is precisely why the vast majority of firms that have created and implemented effective pay equity programs to eliminate historic systemic bias against protected classes have "kept it secret." Spending money "unnecessarily" upsets shareholders. Besides, it just attracts lightning to brag about how fairly you pay everyone!

Much simpler to publicly celebrate success with nonmonetary reinforcements.
