I'm always excited to find new employee recognition ideas so I thought I would share one of the things we do here. In the book Good to Great by Jim Collins, he talks about Level 5 leaders who get the right people on the bus and then figure out what seats to put them in. I really like that analogy so we talk a lot about getting on the Lucibus and finding a seat. Taking that a step further, Christine (my wife) had the idea to buy a few small metal buses and mount them to a base. We started the path of the Lucibus by giving away three of them to various people for going above and beyond the call of duty. It was then their responsibility to pass the bus along to someone else they wanted to recognize whenever they found it appropriate. What I liked about this approach is that it gets people involved in recognizing each other, building team. It emphasizes community and is a little kitsch which keeps it light.
