Beyond the Paycheck: The Rewards of Recognition
To celebrate the upcoming holiday season, we are pleased to invite you to our Annual Holiday Luncheon on Thursday, December 15, 2016 at the historic Bently Reserve Conference Center Lounge in San Francisco. This event begins with an informal networking session followed by a buffet lunch. Please be aware Friday, December 9 is the last day to register for the Holiday Luncheon.
Tickets to this event are limited, and the first 50 registrants will receive a free copy of Dr. Nelson's book "Recognizing & Engaging Employees for Dummies".
Recognition for performance represents the single most validated principle for driving desired behavior and performance in today’s challenging, fast-paced times. The primary reason why managers don’t use recognition is because they report “they aren’t sure how to do it well,” according to doctoral research by Bob Nelson, the primary thought leader on this topic and international best-selling author. Far from being a “fuzzy feel-good notion,” Dr. Nelson will show you practical ways as to how you can get your managers to systematically recognize their employees in a way that maximizes employees' willingness to use their best efforts on a daily basis, creating a competitive advantage that better serves the strategic objectives of the firm. Attendees will learn:
- Recent research about what most motivates today’s workers in challenging time
- Benefits to the organization for creating a Culture of Recognition
- The principles of effective recognition and how to put those into practice
- How employee recognition drives engagement and increases desired outcomes
- Managerial techniques you can apply immediately and the motivation to want to do so
- How to build and sustain progress, keeping your recognition efforts fresh and relevant
