Rewards and Recognition....Consider these

Managers today understand that motivating their people is a critical characteristic to achieving increased performance for the organisation and employee satisfaction.

A Rewards and Recognition program can be an effective method to motivate many employees but there are two key elements to consider when designing or review your existing one.

1. Ask - I worked for an organisation once who implemented an RR program where employees who met performance levels won a trip to Bali.  Now, nice big incentive but the only problem being half the people had been or didn’t want to go.  So it’s critical to find out what will turn people on.  Asking is a good start.

2. How does it relate to Performance Management?
If it isn’t in line with an existing Performance Management Program (PMP) then either the RR program or the PMP needs to be amended.  If the incentive is to motivate performance then it needs to be measured against Key Result Areas.  If its not it can work against the purpose of a PMP and create a culture which undervalues the PMP which can take time to change.

If you don’t already have a Rewards and Recognition program in place seriously consider it, no matter what industry, business or how big or small the results will be worth it.

If you would like more to talk about this further simply give me a call or if you would like to use us we can work with you to implement it.


New Locations

Well we have settled into our new offices and this now gives us the locations and space to better serve our existing and future clients.  Sydney office is now slap bang in the middle of the city at 32 York St. It’s easy for clients to walk in to see us and a short walk from the station. 

So now that both offices (Sydney/ Adelaide) are settled we have listed our new contacts for you, over to the left of ‘What’s Happening’. 

Please feel free to call me on 02 9299 2332 at anytime.


Personally Speaking

This past couple of weeks has reminded me of moving house with added amusement.  We all had our carpentry skills tested, because I didn’t realise that the new workstations would arrive unassembled.

Nor did I realise that they would contain more than fifty pieces each without instructions!  So if its dowel joints you would like to talk about, hey, call and speak with any one of us!  Until we talk again, take care.

Kind regards,
Sam Day
