What can managers do to keep good people?
Sure, you're right DX that just saying "Good job" with a pat on the back isn't going to do it for most people. It may START the process of recognition, but it's only one step on a trail that will include many other action steps, like the ones you've mentioned.
This is why it's hard to be working on your own like we do as recruiters. Very few "pats on the back" but when you get them, they mean something. I have one client who is a very tough and demanding woman, but when she says thank you or has something really nice to say I will feel good for days.
