What isn’t great about birthdays, weddings and anniversaries? Picking out a gift. You’ve known your friend for years yet she tells you all she wants for her special day is to celebrate with friends and family! Lies. You probably already know that your friend adores the cardigans at Ann Taylor or the new silver pumps in the window at Nine West. With so many choices, how do you find the perfect gift?

Who says you have to wait until someone’s birthday or service anniversary to recognize his or her special day? Most employees have different priorities and motivators. Awarding good behavior with cash rewards is painfully easy. Think about the consequences when you’re making an employee associate a number with his or her hard working habits. What happens when that person uses all the extra money to pay off a credit card? Their sense of achievement disappears and you’re back at square one. Consider making your awards truly special. Awards are a splurge item and provide benefits that cash cannot.
SHRM’s article explains how nonmonetary compensation can maximize effectiveness in aligning the goals of the organization with the emotional priorities of its people.
Noncash incentive rewards programs, through which employees earn gifts and merchandise for meeting performance-based milestones, help bolster performance and morale, according to a survey of U.S. office workers completed in July 2011.
The Incentive Research Foundation’s analysis indicates that across a variety of industries noncash awards can capture employees’ imaginations better than cash—thereby motivating them to increase performance. Need an example?
A survey by Staples Advantage provides promising results: The noncash incentive rewards program resulted in 85% of participants feeling more valued, 70% are happier and more motivated at work, 65% are more loyal to their company and 60% are more productive and able to get better results.
