THE FLYING ELEPHANT

The practice of giving thanking employees can go a long way in building a great workplace culture and hence deserves more creativity. At Marico, the flying elephant was introduced as an act of gratitude, to be passed on from employee to employee. Rather than a thank-you note, this stuffed toy resembles efforts that are being recognized and encourages a culture of identifying others’ hard work. Only an employee who has previously received the elephant may send it on to appreciate another colleague. The aim of the game is to allow the elephant to soar, landing at as many desks as possible, spreading the love and appreciation. ‘One who accepts praise must also learn to spread praise’ – wise words of the flying elephant.
