Tip #42: Create a “Brag Board”
Put up a bulletin board to allow associates to “brag” on family, friends and co-workers.
Encourage items that help co-workers get to know each other better, as well as giving a shout-out to a co-worker in a public forum.
Encourage people to post “artwork” from their children, “thank you” notes and posters to each other, and more.
Be sure to focus on items that help co-workers get to know each other a little better. Set a limit on the number of items that can be contributed by one person at one time. But, don’t get upset if some use it more than others.
This is also a great way to let people get to know each other better, and it’s good for conversation-starters, networking/icebreaker games (Guess whose baby picture this is, or whose child or pet, etc.)… it helps people know and share backgrounds (photos of native country), hobbies, movies, books, vacations and other interests!
Be sure leaders participate as well. This will make them more human and relatable, and it will allow all team members to feel that their leaders really feel part of the team – not separate from it.
