It's becoming quite clear that motivation in the workplace is an issue. There's been a bunch of studies lately that show the average American worker is feeling disengaged and that of course results in low productivity.
But it doesn't have to be that way – if things change. And that change needs to come from the top.
During a recent Ted Talk, Yves Morieux, a senior partner and managing director at Boston Consulting Group, said that it's time for management to rethink how to improve motivation, productivity and worker engagement.
One of those ways is simply by rewarding workers who cooperate. A points-based rewards program is ideal for top executives looking to make those top-down changes and lets employees feel appreciated by letting them choose a personalized gift, such as a gift card, tickets to a local sporting event or DVDs and downloadable music.
