Applied Sciences Departmental Staff Appraisal Awards Ceremony (April 2017)

18 May 2017

A matured brain can understand that “The real awards comes from sky”, but as human beings we always hope that our sincere efforts are recognized at the right time and at the right place by the right people.

This is the backdrop of many motivational theories that sprang up in the research on the psychology of humans that is necessary for increasing the productivity at the workplaces.  The “Hawthorne Effect” described by Henry A. Landsberger noticed that there is a tendency for some people to work harder and perform better when they were being observed.  Getting in tune with this scientific fact and in accordance with the strategic plan of HCT, the department of applied sciences has been continuously celebrating the staff appraisal awards ceremony for the past 7 years with the co-operation of the Departmental council and facilitated by the Staff Development Committee.  The following web links give a glimpse of the previous celebrations.
