However this does not always covers the basic leading and motivating of your team. Making them feel wanted and more importantly that they are contributing to the overall mission and goal of the company. If you have a voucher scheme, use it, and don’t give the minimum, make it feel special. Sending a thankyou note does not even cost much but is often overlooked as is giving them an extra day off.
