Is your recognition program consistent?

If you have a program that rewards teams and team members for specific accomplishments, be consistent in those rewards. An inconsistent recognition program can foster feelings of favoritism and resentment when those that achieve those same accomplishments go unrecognized. If a recognition program is to have the positive emotional effect it is intended to have, it needs to be utilized in every relevant case. Formulate a good criterion that recognizes what you need to motivate, and then stay consistent with that criterion.
