>Our HR dept., in response to a recent employee survey (which showed great
>dissatisfaction with our present program) is looking for ideas on
>non-monetary recognition (we have good monetary recognition) of "above &
>beyond" work by employees.  Apparently employees don't just want "thank
>notes, etc. that only they know about.  They want recognition from their
>peers or others in the hospital.  I'm in the process of doing a search, but
>thought you folks might be the best source.
>Any help I can get would be greatly appreciated.
