Overview

1001 Ways to Reward Employees by Bob Nelson

The vice president of a leading management-training and consulting company has delved extensively into the issue of employee rewards and put together an idea-filled reference to making the person/achievement/reward equation work.

Whether you manage a department, oversee a division, lead a company -- or run a family business with just one employee -- there's an essential principle to follow that's too often overlooked: What most motivates the people who work for you is recognition.

A chock-full guide to rewards of every conceivable type for every conceivable situation, 1001 Ways to Reward Employees polls the whole of the American business community, finding innovative ideas in every corner. From the spontaneous gesture of praise to formal company-wide programs, it presents hundreds of ways to say thank you to the people who truly deserve it.

This book is great and works under the premise that you get the best effort out of people, not by lighting a fire under them, but by building a fire within them.

In short, its simply a collection of ways to reward employees for doing a good job. It is divided into 6 sections (day to day rewards, intangible rewards, tangible rewards..) so there's definitely a boatload of reward ideas to fit just about any work situation. Examples from companies across the United States make this a fun read as well. Also good for any HR department- The Sixty-Second Motivator.

Many of the ideas gathered in the book are repetitive so that there are many examples of the same reward idea. A lot of the ideas are great for organizations who provide a product or a service they can give employees as rewards, but in health care, that is not possible. For non-profit organizations, a lot of these ideas are not applicable, also.

Here we go again. I read this book and can say that I picked up a few good ideas, but certainly not 1001 new ideas. It may be useful to someone who is clueless, but, gosh, these things are common sense and have been kicked around for years. Save your money.
