Default How One Company Found Success When Faced With Doom

As many of you know, each week on the Small Business Trends Radio Show we interview small business experts who share their advice and tips with us.

A recent episode addressed issues of finding success and actually experiencing growth when faced with impending doom due to a 70% (yes 70%) drop in industry prices. The show is titled: In The Face of Certain Doom, One Company Finds Success. (You can read more, listen to or download the podcast interview at that link.)

In addition to sharing an inspirational story, our guest provided some inventive and original tips to listeners to successfully overcome such a huge obstacle.

Here is one that I really liked:
What’s a company snitch program? — Every month a meeting is held where employees and management "snitch" on each other for their accomplishments over the past month that may have gone unnoticed. Achievements such as assisting a customer and solving technical problems are outed and generate positive energy that radiates throughout the company and staff.
Neat, huh? I thought it was a great idea and was wondering if anyone else had similiar ideas regarding boosting morale within a company and maintaining a positive atmosphere in the office? Anyone have any additional ideas or your thoughts on this one?
