Best Practices

No Comments

When it comes to Best Practices related to Recognition and Rewards, there are several key points to keep in mind:

1) Employees love financial rewards, but the research shows they appreciate the non-monetary rewards even more.

  • Best Practice – combine the two by including a hand written note of appreciation along with the check or gift certificate you give them for a job well done.

2) There are ways to give money away for free.

  • Best Practice – several CEO’s told us recently how they pay many of their bills via credit card and use the points accumulated to get 10-20 $50 gift cards every month. They then hand those out to the high achievers (preferably wit a hand written note…), giving a reward at no cost.

3) Everyone needs to be seen, validated, and recognized a lot more frequently than most supervisors and managers can provide. This is a hardwired need for every human being and should not be mistaken with the notion that employs need to be “coddled.”

  • Best Practice – coach managers and supervisors to be thoughtful and aware as they make their rounds and not to be afraid to point out a job well done.

The following comments are for Engagient's Employee Engagement Seminar for Managers

We needed to communicate the value of fully engaged employees to our managers and supervisors, and without a doubt, Engagient’s seminar on Employee Engagement clearly told the story. Our entire management staff now understands the value to our business in having a fully engaged workforce. Engagient made sure we had the necessary tools to move forward and we now believe this will help us differentiate ourselves against our competitors.

Don’s delivery is exceptionally engaging, straight forward, and in my experience one of the best facilitators/presenters I’ve worked with. Our junior and mid-level managers were engaged the entire day and they are definitely now on-board with our new initiative. He did an exceptional job in framing the issues, and he was able to link it closely with our company’s core values on this topic.
