Praise your managers, secretaries, support staff?  How about praising anyone that you are looking or wanting an improved performance?

Increase their individual productivity

Increase engagement among their colleagues

Are more likely to stay with their organization

Receive higher loyalty and satisfaction scores from customers

Have better safety records and fewer accidents on the job
