How does your team reward individual success?

My team meets on a regular basis, & we begin every meeting with a few minutes dedicated to acknowledging each other successes / wins in that public forum. It's not uncommon for multiple people to give this type of positive feedback, and the entire team celebrates as a unified group. It's an awesome way to ensure that each individual is recognized
