Behaviour Motivation Programs On Rise

Programs to motivate specific behaviour jumped to a top-tier goal for the first time in 11 years, says the WorldatWork and ITA Group survey report ‘Trends in Employee Recognition 2013.’ While length of service, above-and-beyond performance, and peer-to-peer recognition remain prevalent goals for recognition programs, the increase in organizations aiming to motivate behaviours marks the most notable change. "Employers are increasingly focusing their recognition programs on employee behaviours ‒ for example, collaboration, teamwork, creativity, and problem-solving ‒ and are even expanding them to include health-related behaviors," says Rose Stanley, recognition practice leader for WorldatWork. "Organizations, while not moving away from legacy recognition programs, are investing more in recognition programs that can drive business results. We are beginning to see a trend where wellness and recognition programs to motivate specific behaviours are starting to intersect. We expect this intersection to become more pronounced as a way to drive healthcare costs down and increase productivity."
