What You Will Learn

According to Arc Advisory, 63% of firms using incentives reported gains of 10% - 30% in productivity—but some did not. The foundational thinking of human motivation theory has gotten more interesting since Frederick Herzberg published his groundbreaking research six decades ago. Operating executives cannot rely on systems, automation, or diligence of a few outstanding employees to deliver all the results their companies need to remain competitive, profitable, and an appealing place to work. Motivating your workforce using today’s labor management technologies is a tempting – but dangerous – approach if it isn’t structured and managed carefully. This session will cover an interesting view on leading motivation theories and how they are often surprisingly at odds with popular labor management programs.

Key Takeaways

• Examples of how to address the challenges and frustrations leaders of large labor forces face every day.
• A summary of the five missteps you need to avoid so you do not unleash a program your staff will love to hate.
