This program exposes the massive benefits of effective rewards and recognition in the workplace. Participants uncover the benefits of engaged personnel and how this achieves greater productivity, higher levels of staff retention and enhanced, sustainable business results. All forms and types of rewards and recognition are explored, complemented by four very interesting theoretical concepts that underlie human behaviour and ‘motivation’.
Statistics and research findings in this field of management will shock many. Participants will discuss key motivators (and de-motivators!) and learn strategies for utilising them in the workplace. A key part of the course delves into the art of providing feedback - how this often poorly executed skill can actually empower supervisors and managers for superior results when delivered effectively.
Topics covered include:
- Appreciating the direct link between recognition and performance
- Understanding terminologies: recognition, reward, award and incentive
- Understanding motivation – the ‘internal engine’
- Four key theoretical concepts on human motivation and how they apply
- Money as a Motivator?
- Determining motivators of individual staff members/ teams
- Exploring ideas for incentives & motivators
- Personal, written, electronic praise and recognition
