can awards be part of you HR strategy?

With the American National Magazine Awards just behind us and the Canadian NMAs approaching, winning big is on everyone's mind. Since there's some question as to the value of an award – does it help increase ad sales? do readers care? – it may make the most sense to look at industry awards as part of your HR strategy. What better way to show your staff and contributors that you you think they're doing a good job than by entering their work into consideration for an award? Studies have shown employees who feel appreciated are happier in their jobs and more loyal, and recognition by their peers is certain to boost their satisfaction – hey, they get to gloat in front of everyone!
