Why Recognition Will Be A Major Workplace Issue 10 Years From Now
by Matthew Stollak on Tuesday, August 14, 2012
Yes, I'm channeling my inner Kreskin and making the prediction that employee recognition will be one of, if not THE major workplace issue in 2022.
For over 30 years, Wreck-It Ralph has been doing the same job as the "bad guy" in a popular video game. As he states, "it starts to be hard to love your job, when no one else seems to like you for doing it." He decides to leave his own game to become a hero in another.
It features the tagline, "The story of a regular guy....just looking for a little wreck-ognition."
Not only does it feature many beloved video game characters (Q-bert, Pac-man, Bowser, Sonic), it is the 52nd animated feature from Disney, which means marketing will be through the roof. With a release date of November 2, expect kid demand to be heavy through Thanksgiving and Christmas.
So, as the next generation of workers reach working age, don't be surprised in 2022 when you see a greater demand for recognition on the job. They just want to be like Wreck-It Ralph.
