Recognition and rewards can drive performance increases of 20% or more by leveraging the power of motivation psychology, social dynamics and workers’ desire for aspirational awards within a positive culture that encourages the collaboration and success of all individuals and teams.  This seems like common sense, but it is not easy to implement in the workplace unless you create programs that are designed with recognition and reward best practices. There is an art and a science element to effective recognition. This includes smart program structure, rules, training, recognition tactics, reward choices, actionable analytics and more. 

Join recognition experts Ira Ozer and Jeffrey Brenner, who will explore these aspects of effective incentive use while sharing proven programs that have won industry awards:
  • Best practices to create effective programs from the Recognition Professionals International (RPI), Incentive Marketing Association (IMA) and the Incentive Research Foundation (IRF)
  • How recognition programs can improve sales performance, company culture and create lasting change, while delivering a return on investment (ROI)
  • Motivation psychology of recognition and rewards
  • The power of tangible non-monetary rewards to improve performance
