Decorating your office? Display an award as a reminder of success

Media Outlet: 


As employees spend more time in the office, employers are paying more attention to studies and advice from productivity experts that suggest that the more personal a workspace is, the happier and more productive the employee will be. "Some people hang their awards or their degrees on their walls," said Robert A. Giacalone, a professor of human resource management at Temple's Fox School of Business. "These are good for image management, but they also remind the person of previous success and that helps bolster them throughout the day."
