In the absence of good recognition the conversation will always be focused on pay but this article from the previous MD of Waitrose confirms once more that it is not always about pay.  Recognition is really important and the interesting insight here is the different views by gender and generation. Many organisations today have varying forms of recognition scheme, my surprise is that many line managers fail to engage with them effectively and see them as something from "HR". Tragic but true!

It was a good prompt for me today to think about people that have delivered something exceptional at TMP and make sure that I don't fall into the same trap.
