Employee recognition and reward - job satisfaction?

For those who are lucky to have a ‘seat on the bus' -- reports are that job satisfaction is low. Like most companies, decisions have been made to drive out cost and increase efficiencies. I work for a large (F500 company) and have volunteered to help improve how our immediate team of 150+ recognize and reward each other. We are geographically disbursed (approx 40% US/60 outside US) and some work in business offices and others work from home offices. I have volunteered to participate in a dedicated task force to explore improving recognition and reward (outside of salary & stock which is mandated by corp and competitive practices). Specifically, my small committee and I are interested in reward & recognition best practices which are considered effective and valued, especially given current business climates. Recognition is personal and individual, we're digging into understanding how *do* individuals in the organization appreciate being recognized and rewarded (in addition to actually having a job?) What makes you feel recognized by your company/peers? What's important to you? Goal here is to use suggestions as brainstorm stimuli for the team and perhaps will lead to a ‘toolbox’ for peer and mgmt to use. Lastly, if you have any resources & best practices...would welcome info/links/resources! Thank you very much in advance! No solicitations please.
