The team of writers over at The Hiring Site will spend the month of November looking at the concept of recognition. If you treat your best workers well, through a whole host of logical practices, you might retain exceptional people who do good work. And if you keep your marvelous employees happy, you might make things easier on recruiters who have to conduct a fire drill whenever someone remarkable leaves.
(Stop the fire drills!)
So that’s the concept for the month, which led me to think about recognition in my own little community. Steve Browne, Jennifer McClure, Neil Morrison, Tim Sackett and Matt Stollak are wonderful contributing writers. My clients at CareerBuilder are the best in the business, too.
Do I thank everybody enough? Probably not. While I am gifty and like to send things in the mail, I’m not incredibly demonstrative when it comes to praise. I was born in the Midwest. If I’m not disappointed in you, I’m content.
(Either way, you have to guess.)
I also leveraged my expansive network and asked my friends to write great articles, too. I want to make sure that I recognize their hard work. An email only goes so far, which is why I want to share their fabulous stories.

My friends are impressive and they write good stuff. Check out their articles and share what’s good. You won’t be sorry, and unlike me, I’m sure those writers will say thank you!
