Desire of validation

is one of the deepest human needs. Everyone wants to know they are a valued member of an organization, has done an outstanding job or has achieved a certain degree of success in sports, academics, business, or another field of endeavor.

Giving recognition is one the most powerful means of rewarding effort, saying thank you, providing sense of belonging, and encouraging positive performance. Being recognized for anything, whether accomplishing a goal, making the sale, completing a successful season of soccer, getting an A on an exam or simply for making the effort – is an excellent feeling, one that lasts for a long time.
