Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 156305339X, Paperback)It's the million-plus-copy bestseller that every manager and employer needs, whether they supervise one employee or one thousand. Because what really motivates people to perform are thoughtful, personal gestures that signify real appreciation--and don't necessarily cost money.
A chock-full guide to rewards of every conceivable type for every conceivable situation, 1001 Ways to Reward Employees offers over 1000 innovative ideas beyond the expected raise or promotion. They range from a simple, unexpected "thank you" to Ford Motor Company's use of employees in commercials to programs such as Home Depot's Employee-of-the-Month Award--honorees receive $100 and a merit badge, and get their names engraved on a plaque.
In researching the book, author Bob Nelson interviewed supervisors at all types and sizes of businesses in all parts of the country, finding inventive and effective employee rewards in every sector. No matter how many people you manage, you will find lots of ideas that will work for you and your business.

Why is 1001 ways to reward employees, with over 1.4 million copies in print, such an extraordinary bestseller? Because a little over ten years ago Bob Nelson took the seeds of an idea and turned it into something indispensable for business. The idea? That it's not a raise that motivates an employee, and it's not a promotion--what really sparks a person to perform are those intangible, unexpected gestures that signify real appreciation for a job well done. Now, after having worked with thousands of organizations in the years since 1001 ways to reward ... was first published, Bob Nelson presents a second edition packed with hundreds of new ideas and examples of how companies are using rewards and recognitions to boost productivity and keep their valued employees happy. Airplane mechanics are rewarded with balloons and pinwheels. Another manager calls his employees' mothers and thanks them for raising such industrious children.
