Employee Motivation That Works

Program Overview

There are few greater assets in any organization, large or small, that a team of motivated employees.

Yet motivation is an attribute that needs to be earned. It is not a tap that a manager can turn on at will.

There are many tactics to generate a motivated workforce – and there are steps to be taken to ensure the return from those tactics is maximized and not viewed with suspicion.

And it’s not just about the money, despite what they say! In fact motivated employees are less likely to be motivated by cash thrown at them that by some easy to implement activities any manager can introduce.

Participants will get involved closely in the contents of this program, have some fun and learn a lot – in fact, get motivated themselves!
