My friends who worked as waiters and waitresses talked about the $100 tip. They would return to a table they had served to clean-up and find an extraordinary tip the when calculated added up to far beyond the normal percentage. It was like winning the jackpot in their minds. The tip was a form of victory. Then the question came, what next?
Another friend said the best tip they received was an offer to work at a patron’s company. The individual was not offering an immediate reward but was making a longer-term commitment in my friend’s talents. The pay-off took longer but the impact was far reaching.
What rewards are you offering? Which ones are truly meaningful?
