IBM has a really cool program called the Thanks Award program. The way it works is you can give up to 12 Thanks Awards per year and you can personally receive 3 Thanks Awards. The awards are actually pretty nice, for instance a fleece, nice duffle bags and many gadgets – all decorated with IBM logos of course.
This is a great way to say thank you to anyone that helped you out, made your life easier or was just plain nice – and helped the business of course! Specifically it is a way for any employee to give an award to a fellow employee. Many times we are always managing UP and some times we forget to manage down or parallel.
I would like to end with a rhyme but I can't think of a word that rhymes with Thanks. 🙁
Here are some poor attempts to be funny:
You don't thanks, then you stanks.
Selfish ranks, give a thanks.
Don't be prank, give thanks.
