The achievements of high flyers are given much exposure. The publicity surrounding their exploits is not only rewarding for the individual but may give a sense of pride to all engaged in the enterprise in which they work. However, there are dangers in recognizing and lauding the high flyers. It should go without saying that behind every success there is a team which has also contributed to the end result. As is the way with teams, it is often the unsung who provide most of the backbone. There are many workers who doubt if their existence is known (not in name terms, but simply in terms of their contribution to the work of the enterprise) to the upper levels of management. In truth, to these managers, they are often thought of as an expense rather than an asset. That they are on the payroll does not mean those above know who they are, nor necessarily what they do.
