Don't Make These Motivation Mistakes

Because of its scope and complexity, organizational recognition efforts have the greatest likelihood to go awry. For this reason, many organizations avoid getting too creative with recognition programs, sticking instead with tried-and-true programs that, unfortunately, are often not all that effective in motivating employees. The starting point of many organizational recognition problems is poor planning. Some action-oriented companies tend to take a ready-fire-aim approach to planning. But where a systematic plan is highly desirable for individual and team recognition, it is absolutely essential for organizational recognition. Start with the end in mind of what overall you are trying to accomplish.
