Abishek Mittel, author of the Mumblr blog, had this to say about the book:
"I particularly liked their concept of Strategic Recognition programs which make recognition a modus operandi for businesses, rather than remaining something that is elitist, infrequent and often not intrinsically motivating. Indeed, recognition, if measured and managed well, can help companies drive behaviours that benefit it. The authors make use of a “Values Distribution Graph” to track the percentage of employees recognized across departments for demonstrating behaviours aligned with the Values and Mission of the organization. It is powerful! Imagine if the data tells you that more people are being recognized for producing “reliable results”, whereas the focus of the organization is really on innovation (risk-taking)!"
