How many times have you seen someone go way above and beyond, yet receive either nothing (most common), a positive OLCC, or a paper BZ (no check)? I guess that for some people, the recognition of a job well done means something in and of itself...it has intrinsic value. Most of us, however, aren't so noble. We'd like something tangible...like a check or gift certificate. This speaks to the grade school level recognition system we have in-place here at Express. If you do a great job, the magic FedEx fairy "rewards" you with the equivalent of a gold star or your name atop some meaningless "award" sheet. It also speaks to how management views our intelligence level...like that of a third grader. If FedEx wants some buy-in, make it worth our while to do so. How about a new car for the top sales lead producer in the nation, and a big screen TV for the runner-up? Or tickets to a sports event or concert? Sorry, but lunch with the senior, or some other FedEx functionary doesn't cut-it. Squeeeak! The bottom line is that FedEX is CHEAP! Not just thrifty, but miserly-cheap, like Mister Krabs of SpongeBob Squarepants fame. I get the feeling that if Fred dropped a penny down a street grate, he'd have half of the Memphis Public Works Dept. out there trying to retrieve it. Is any other huge company this effing cheap?
