Is There Always An Incentive Pony in There? « I2I – Incentive Intelligence | Recognition & Reward Compendium | Scoop.it

Sometimes I think I should add “crap sorter” to my resume.

I seem to spend an inordinate amount of time going through research, supposed-research, blog posts and lies to find the real truth in the cornucopia of information available about “what motivates employees.” Many times I find interesting and useful information. Many times I just find crap.

Collective Vs. Individual Benefits? Which Makes Us Happier? « I2I – Incentive Intelligence | Recognition & Reward Compendium | Scoop.it

One of the things that often comes up in discussions on employee engagement is employee happiness. And when we talk about happiness the conversation invariably get’s back to money, benefits, etc. While I’m not convinced personally that happiness = engagement (can I be unhappy with a company yet engaged enough to foster change?) I do think happiness is one element in the mix.
