A few weeks ago, we sought to define each of our company values to those who don’t work at Red Branch. We’re proud of everything our employees accomplish and everyone that contributes towards the result. That’s why one of our main values is Credit Due! Check out our personal definitions of credit where it’s due below!
We put so much of ourselves into what we do every day individually and as a team. One of the best things about Red Branch is that our efforts get recognized and celebrated, so we all know that what we do matters and makes a difference.
Giving credit where credit is due is simply the verbal or written high-five! Big or small, thanks and shout-outs are a regular occurrence at Red Branch Media. The acknowledgment is not only appreciated, but it motivates me to pay it forward and be my best self!
It is important to give credit where credit is due. Encouraging your teammates by giving them credit for a job well done or helping out keeps everyone motivated toward the same goal.
Red Branch Media creates amazing work. What makes this possible is the incredible team that’s behind each project. We all work together, each with our individual strengths, to make everything you see today. That’s why we value giving credit to each brancher because that’s where it’s due. To quote Leslie Knope from the TV show Parks and Recreation, “no one achieves anything alone.”
To me, credit in the workplace is about acknowledging the great work being done around you. When a colleague is able to accomplish something incredible, it takes little to no extra time to go out of your way to recognize that. By committing to giving credit where credit is due, you can highlight the progress made by your teammates while also creating a standard for your team of observing each other’s wins.
Credit due means taking the time to stop what you are doing and tell someone that they have done an amazing job. Giving credit is intentional and can directly impact the work environment, work culture, and working relationships. Giving credit makes people feel seen, appreciated, and important – 3 things everyone loves to feel.
A key element when giving credit where it’s due is acknowledging the amount of effort put in by the people involved. Whether it be a small task or a large project, take time to express gratitude for the time, energy, and resources each individual put into helping make success happen. A simple phrase such as “Your dedication to this project was truly appreciated” can go a long way in showing appreciation.
Like an iceberg, much of the marketing work we do at Red Branch is hidden beneath the surface. I always try to hat tip my colleagues because their depth of knowledge is far deeper than what I see on the surface.
We all work best when we’re appreciated, right? Whether from a lead, a fellow SME, or a teammate in any capacity, giving credit where it’s due acknowledges that no single person could do this alone. We all bring unique strengths to the team, and that’s what makes it great.
To me, giving credit means acknowledging and praising (someone for a good piece of work etc).
Credit is an essential part of the culture at Red Branch – acknowledging successes, big or small, helps to create a workplace filled with appreciation and drive.
Credit is a necessary part of the employee equation. It can act as a breath of fresh air when you feel burnt out from the grind of work. Having someone acknowledge your excellent work & credit success on a client or company level to an employee shows confidence in one’s ability & role. That can be a massive lift to not only someone’s mood at work but the grand scheme of their career.
Credit for great work is not a debt to be paid. It’s a gift to be celebrated! Giving and receiving credit builds trust and friendship among team members.
I love to recognize the extraordinary accomplishments our team achieves! Put simply, that’s what credit due means to me. Not only does it raise spirits, but it also helps to grow confidence in the work that we’re doing. Celebrating those milestones is also an excellent way to acknowledge the contributions of others and build up the team. “When one of us wins, we all win!”
It takes a village to raise a child, and it takes a brilliant team of Branchers to produce the work that we do. After finishing a particularly grueling project, it’s easy to sit back and say, “Look at this amazing thing I did.” Credit, where it’s due, means remembering the team you have at your side and at your back which allowed such success.
Credit is acknowledging and praising any type of success, big or small; what can be considered a small victory for some can be a huge accomplishment for others, as we all come from different levels of expertise.
Credit is taking a moment to celebrate the little or significant victories both in life and in the workplace. That can be making the bed in the morning or curating ideas for an exciting project launch. It’s acknowledging that you chose to do something that will have a positive impact on your day!
Credit acknowledges the hard work and dedication your team has contributed to in the workplace. It helps raise spirits, praises teammates’ strengths, and collectively improves us.
