If you don’t have the budget for private design consulting, this is the option for you.
This popular series offers the most cost-effect solution to employee morale challenges.
There is a proven formula for improving engagement using employee recognition. If employees feel valued your organization can not only survive, but often thrive during economic downturn, a competitive job market, rapid growth, or any challenge you may be facing.
If you have read Make Their Day you might remember the story of Remedy, the company that coped with economic hardship and parent company scandals, and managed to come through it with improved customer service, increased revenue, and steady employee morale. To make this happen they needed a culture of recognition.
You can’t achieve the level of engagement that produces exceptional results by adding a gift card program or an employee of the month award.
Program development must be built on a rock solid foundation and adhere to the principles of meaningful recognition.
Would you recommend this program? “Yes, very much so. There are so many things that can go wrong with implementing a program that it is very important to learn from someone who has seen both successful and unsuccessful program implementations.”
-David DeWees, Senior Manager of Consulting Services, SARK, Inc (a division of Software Architects)
