Why incentives work
If people are truly an organization’s most important resource then effectively recognizing them as valuable must be an organizational priority. Effective employee recognition is a critical component to building and maintaining an excellent business environment, which is what employees are looking for today.
Recognition is a very effective leadership principle and has become a “hard” management skill. It has moved from being “something nice to do” to being a management tool that strategically enhances and drives the right activities and behaviours that are aligned with the organization’s goals.
