  1. It’s interesting and exciting to see a large-scale company like Scotiabank use an employee recognition program with great success. The Pay it Forward campaign seemed to really get colleagues to applaud one another and recognize the positives going on in the workplace. I am curious how the point recognition system that was mentioned works. Do employees only receive points if they receive recognition, or can they earn points for recognizing their colleagues as well? It seems there could be some employees who get more points than others if there was not a system set in place, so I’d be interested in hearing what that system is like!

  2. Pay It Forward sounds like a great way to build recognition as a habit. It would be interesting to know if recognitions remained elevated and for what period after the campaign.
