Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Why is 1001 Ways to Reward Employees, with over 1.4 million copies in print, such an extraordinary bestseller? Because a little over ten years ago Bob Nelson took the seeds of an idea and turned it into something indispensable for business. The idea? That its not a raise that motivates an employee, and its not a promotion—what really sparks a person to perform are those intangible, unexpected gestures that signify real appreciation for a job well done.

Now, after having worked with thousands of organizations in the years since 11001 Ways to Reward. . . was first published, Bob Nelson presents a second edition packed with hundreds of new ideas and examples of how companies are using rewards and recognitions to boost productivity and keep their valued employees happy. Airplane mechanics are rewarded with balloons and pinwheels. Another manager calls his employees mothers and thanks them for raising such industrious children. There are ideas from the offbeat (The Margarita Award) to the company-wide (a quiet room) to the embarrassingly simple (a hand-written thank you note) to the wacky (the Laugh-a-Day challenge) to the formal (a two-week promotion to special assistant to the president). Each section includes no-cost rewards and low-cost rewards, both public and private, making this new edition an indispensable resource for making the person/achievement/reward equation work.

Synopsis:

"You get the best effort from others not by lighting a fire beneath them, but by building a fire within them." So sums up Bob Nelson about the philosophy of motivation that makes 1001 Ways to Reward Employees the million-copy bestseller that is indispensable for business. Now completely revised and updated, with hundreds of new, real-world examples, 1001 Ways to Reward Employees is a chock-full guide to rewards of every conceivable type for every conceivable situation.

Synopsis:

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

"This book should be in the top drawer of every manager's desk!" — Karl Albrecht, co-author of Service America

Whether you manage a department, oversee a division, lead a company--or run a family business with just one employee--there's an essential principle to follow that's too often overlooked: What most motivates the people who work for you is recognition.

A chock-full guide to rewards of every conceivable type for every conceivable situation, 1001 WAYS TO REWARD EMPLOYEES polls the whole of the American business community, finding innovative ideas in every corner; and from the spontaneous gesture of praise to formal company-wide programs, it presents hundreds of ways to say thank you to the people who truly deserve it.
