    A kind word goes a long way. Or so say the execs at Kettering Health Network. The C-suite team there (most of whom have climbed the ranks internally) has historically handwritten countless notes and sent them to employees’ home addresses every year, but in the age of tweets, it has taken them one step further and built an online portal where recognition reigns. Employees and leaders can post shout-outs or quick words of thanks there, which in turn earn employees points to use in an online recognition store. “I trust our company’s leaders and believe they don’t just talk the talk,” says one employee. In fact, there’s a reason: The company’s Walk in My Shoes program allows leaders to shadow team members in all manner of care (even surgery!) for several hours to better understand what’s working, what isn’t, and why.
