It is very important that organizations recognize the efforts and achievements fo their top performers and make them feel like a highly valued member of the organization.
Implementing the above ideas of rewarding and recognizing top performers can help organizations enhance the engagement and motivation levels of their employees and thus get the best out of their best employees.
Whether the winner takes all phenomenon is fair or not is the question to be asked. It seems only logical that the highest performing employees would end up getting the maximum recognition and rewards. The caveat to this is that it might demotivate other employees who are possibly average performers or borderline cases.
