Whale done concept is to encourage the employees by appreciating their smallest of efforts towards the organization and business.

It expects the mangers to pay more attention to what the employees done right and take their mistakes positively.

Through, positive reinforcement the organization can build trust of in the system and keeping the same for the employees.

It works around following ideas:

• Building trust,

• Accentuate the Positive,

• Redirecting mistakes to learning.

Implementation of “Whale Done” for “Empower”

- Putting a separate board for each DST

- Using the board to announce best performers on a regular basis

- ( Best TL, SE with highest amount or highest no. of files, for performing in cross selling,)

- Encouraging the employees not only for their performance but also their conduct (coming on time) in the organization.

- Appreciating their efforts towards betterment of the business.

- Recognizing the highest performing team, not just the TL or the Manager.

Redirecting mistakes:

Employees should be charged a penalty for their misconduct. The amount can be collected for “employee fund” and spent on them at the end of the month.


Install a WHALE DONE BOARD, in the organization, at every floor or between every team. Only higher level managers or TL should be able to put the recognizing notice on the board that appreciates any of the employees’ positive activities.

Nice system. how does it works any change, need more comments on it
