Management Practice: Human Resources

QWE Practice Areas: Enhance productivity and wages through both monetary and non-monetary incentives (140); demonstrate the value of employees with disabilities (450)

The Work Services Corporation (WSC) Awesome Card Program recognizes direct labor employees for outstanding job performance. Awesome cards (the size of business cards) are distributed to WSC managers, supervisors, customers and government officials who can sign and present the cards to WSC employees when they observe outstanding performance. The employee presents the card to the administration section, which includes it in a monthly drawing for gift cards. The recognition for great work is as much of an incentive as the gift card itself.
