Thou Shalt Motivate and Reward Workforce Better


The potential of enterprise incentive management systems should not be ignored, since this software category promises a fairly rapid and tangible return on investment, outlines expensive over- and under-payment errors, and reduces administration overhead.

motivating employees  sales forces, rewarding and motivating employee performance through variable compensation largely remains a time-honored practice (as in the case where employees can take some time off as a reward), especially in the private sector rank and file. Yet a well-deployed incentive and performance management system should ensure that employee activity and behavior is focused company-wide. It should also increase employee and company productivity potential, deliver more profitable operations, and increase the li Read More

Performance Feedback beyond the Annual Appraisal: Feedback via Technology Linked to Positive Employee Attitudes


Effective feedback is critical for employees to improve their work performance, which, in turn, drives business growth. Feedback helps to reduce ambiguity and uncertainty about what goals to pursue, to understand what behaviors are required for success, and to know how others view and evaluate one’s performance.

With workplace communication and collaboration technologies becoming ever more commonplace, and timely face-to-face communication becoming less feasible due to ever-growing virtual teams, performance feedback can now be delivered by a variety of media or technologies such as videoconferencing and social platforms.

The research described in this white paper concerns employees receiving performance feedback via media including e-mail, instant messaging, conference calls, online meeting, content management tools, or social networking communities. It was found that employees who received feedback via more technologies were more engaged, more satisfied with their jobs, felt better recognized, and had higher opinions of their managers. Overall, the results suggest that organizations should take advantage of communication and collaborative technologies in providing effective feedback and motivating employees.

Companies are increasingly using gamification to reward and recognize both their trading partners and their

motivating employees  gratification, and have trouble motivating themselves if the results can''t be seen for in, say, 6 to 12 months. Thus, if a salesperson needs 12 months to convert a lead into a sales order, he/she will not likely focus on prospecting and creating leads and opportunities if he/she only gets evaluated through the actual sale. But if the gamification can show some other results metrics, it is more likely that sales employees will put some effort into activities other than merely closing sales. If employees g Read More

Performance support helps keep workers on track. But truly effective performance support communicates company-specific “when, what, and how” information, in the fastest, clearest, and easiest way possible—like a GPS unit issuing personalized directions for the specific task at hand. Performance support won’t teach you how to drive, but it will help you get to where you want to go.
