    ♫ Heartbreaks and promises, I’ve had more than my share
    I’m tired of giving my love and getting nowhere, nowhere
    What I really need is somebody who will always be there
    This time around for me baby, actions speak louder than words..

    Words, music and recorded by: Robin S.

    Today (Nov. 19, 2008) on IT World is an article: “Eight ways to show employees the love when you can’t show them the money” by Ed Hess and Charles Goetz. It is a nice overview of ways to make staff feel appreciated without spending a great deal of money. While it was written from an IT staff perspective, the tips in the article would apply to most, if not all, businesses. All of the tips rang true for me, with the exception of giving an award or a ribbon for a staff member to hang in their office – to me this was a bit like an elementary teacher giving out gold stars. But hey, the world is filled with people of all types, and this tip may resonate well with others. I think a handwritten note given discretely to such a staff member is a warmer and more discrete and genuine expression of thanks.

    In balance this is a great little article on how to show your employees that your actions speak louder then words…
