Creating an environment that fosters motivation, reinforcement and recognition is no small task. Many employers and managers misunderstand the concept of motivation and are therefore perplexed when employees do not respond to reward and recognition, do not appear motivated, and in extreme cases even experience a drop in performance.

365 Ways to Motivate and Reward Your Employees begins by outlining motivational theories, motivation myths in the workplace, internal and external motivators, employee motivation, and management methods and tools. Central to success is the creation of workplace congruence: understanding that a good fit must exist between management styles, the work being done, the employees being managed, and the principles and beliefs of all parties involved. The workplace can undergo a magical transformation when it is recognized that employee motivation happens at an individual level and a shift in management style occurs that is in line with not only these individual needs but the principles and beliefs of the organizational team as a whole.

Tied closely to motivation is the concept of recognition. The level and type of recognition that an employee is comfortable with and motivated by also depends on the individual. Therefore, understanding the culture of the organization, and the desires, beliefs and principles of the employees will help determine the effectiveness of a recognition strategy and what the strategy should entail.

Keeping the excitement alive is the biggest challenge of any reward and recognition program or culture. 365 Ways to Motivate and Reward Your Employees is full of recognition and reward ideas and themes, communication ideas, suggestion program ideas, and how to incorporate public recognition.

365 Ways to Motivate and Reward Your Employees is a must-read for anyone charged with the responsibility of providing a motivating environment that encourages employees to perform to the best of their abilities. Human beings are intrinsically motivated by reward and recognition and from a company perspective it is a cost-effective way to increase performance and boost morale; clearly a win-win situation!
