About This Book

This book advances the practice of recognition—to make it a more viable part of as many relationships, groups, and organizations as possible. Although this book primarily focuses on the value of recognition in the world of business, it also serves as a manifesto of sorts. 

The 1001 Rewards & Recognition Fieldbook walks the reader through a detailed organizational recognition plan to sustain long-term initiative at multiple levels across an organization. The book goes on to show readers why and how recognition works to achieve desired results. In this comprehensive resource, case studies and evidence from research, surveys, and actual practice show that recognition and nonmonetary rewards, when properly applied, are great motivators. This book helps one initiate low-cost recognition in a systematic way, ensuring that one can build a culture of recognition in a company that will survive and thrive in good times and bad.

The book argues how the practice of recognition will enhance not just the effectiveness of organizations but the effectiveness of families and communities, and even society at large.

Comprehensive and fully integrated on the topic of employee recognition and rewards, the book is both a resource and an application guide to help one get the best results from their reward and recognition efforts. This book is not intended just to be read but is meant to be used “in the field” where it can have the greatest impact. Special features of the book include thought-provoking quotes and real-world examples along with a complete suite of recognition assessment and measurement tools, recognition planning checklists, recognition planning worksheets, and recognition training designs.
