Awards & Recognition: In the Worst of [Economic] Times
Total Rewards Content Area

Tenure-based rewards systems are still out there despite their proven lack of impact on organizational performance.  When was the last time you heard of someone being excited about getting their 20-year of service watch?  There is a distinction between "rewards" and "awards" and this distinction is critical in the process of recognizing and engaging employees.  Through "awards", you can drive discretionary effort, increase employee engagement, reduce turnover, and propel business performance. This session provides an overview of the "reward vs. award" concept, along with simple, but practical ideas and tips for employee recognition without breaking the budget.
