Awesome book for HR professionals to use in engaging their workforce. We are creating a menu driven incentive plan:
* I will make a list of about 30 to 50 of the incentives out of the book that are non-monetary
* Staff select 20
* I will send out a memo and/or include in the newsletter to all employees to have them vote on their top 5
* I will receive responses and create a Recognition Menu
* When a supervisor would like to recognize an employee for going above and beyond, the employee then gets to select off the Recognition Menu
* Not only will they get what they choose, they will be recognized in the newsletter letting the other employee's know what they received

This is also something we plan use when we develop an employee performance evaluation.

I'm not all the way through it yet, but it has many suggestions I have never considered before. There are also many tools to pass on to my supervisors to be used to enhance their leadership skills. Company culture is more important than ever and we want to be a employer of choice.

This is a fun and idea packed book for the busy manager. When employees start feeling blah! I bust out the book and do an excsorsize and before you know it there are smiles and the staff are reenergised. This book has become one of my favorites. It's a easy read and the instructions given for the activities are easy to understand. Glad I made the purchase. Price can't be beat either.

I am a high level manager in state government and unfortunately rises or any type of increase is not in the horizon for our employees. I have been looking for ways that I can motivate my employees that won't break me as well. This book is perfect. It has tons and tons of low cost or no cost ways I can reward my employees. They work hard and it's not easy to keep them motivated and interested in their jobs without some type of incentive. But even I don't get raises so I am going to use quite a few of these ideas for my work place. The book is well organized and it is easy to find different ideas. The stories are great as well.

Many great and free, inexpensive ideas to really make employees feel valued at work. I've tried several already and they work great. I used the older version of this book so much that I had to dog-ear a bunch of pages. Thanks.

I have given this book out to managers for over 20 years. It used to be 1001 ways, so thank you Mr. Nelson for 500 more ideas! This book is a quick reference, and has a variety of rewards to fit a variety of situations.

I didn't read all of this, and I probably never will. That's because it fulfills it's purpose so well. This would be a great book even if it was "101 Ways to Reward Employees." I have really great foremen who already know how to encourage and motivate employees, but if you don't, you'll find many ways to train your supervisors as well as reward your employees.

This book could save you a lot of money, too, but showing you how to reward employees for little or no money. I really think that its best use is training immediate supervisors, but I'm sure it has many more uses than that. Excellent, excellent resource. It is exactly what it says it is.

This book does have a lot of examples but not very many low cost or creative ideas that I was hoping for. There are a lot of descriptions about companies and what they did. It was more reading than I wanted to go through to get to the ideas. Just not what I expected or wanted.
