1001 Ways To Reward Employeesby Bob Nelson
Synopses & Reviews
It's the million-plus-copy bestseller that every manager and employer needs, whether they supervise one employee or one thousand. Because what really motivates people to perform are thoughtful, personal gestures that signify real appreciation--and don't necessarily cost money.
A chock-full guide to rewards of every conceivable type for every conceivable situation, 1001 Ways to Reward Employees offers over 1000 innovative ideas beyond the expected raise or promotion. They range from a simple, unexpected "thank you" to Ford Motor Company's use of employees in commercials to programs such as Home Depot's Employee-of-the-Month Award--honorees receive $100 and a merit badge, and get their names engraved on a plaque.
In researching the book, author Bob Nelson interviewed supervisors at all types and sizes of businesses in all parts of the country, finding inventive and effective employee rewards in every sector. No matter how many people you manage, you will find lots of ideas that will work for you and your business.
This book is a godsend to every well-intentioned manager or frustrated employee. It makes a compelling case that recognition, rewards, and positive reinforcement all do work and that they can work for you. --Ken Blanchard, from the Foreword
