People Patterns: Why more choice = less choosing

People Patterns: Why more choice = less choosing | Recognition & Reward Compendium | Scoop.it

A cafe in Melbourne has been carving out niche in a very competitive market by offering the choice of only black, white or filter coffee. No cappuccino, latte or other variant, they have adopted the findings of behavioural studies where less has proven to be more when it comes to a consumer making a decision to purchase.

Recognize This! – Communication and “Face Time” are critical to building employee engagement and strong brands.

If I asked you what industry you think would be the most difficult to create an environment in which employees would want to engage, which industry would you name? Retail is an industry that quickly comes to mind for many reasons, not the least of which is the mercurial nature of customers in a retail setting.

High Ground Isn’t Always The Right Ground « I2I – Incentive Intelligence | Recognition & Reward Compendium | Scoop.it

I can take the high ground sometimes. Pontificating about how you should run an incentive and reward program. I can. Really, I can.

 

But at the end of the day I know something needs to get done. Businesses need to see impact, results – dare I say it… ROI.

Energized Disengagement – The New Trend « I2I – Incentive Intelligence

Energized Disengagement – The New Trend « I2I – Incentive Intelligence | Recognition & Reward Compendium | Scoop.it

Here’s the problem. Most of the time the people tasked with driving employee engagement have no control over whether employees are engaged. I’m about talking HR departments, “employee engagement” departments, personnel departments. Typically these departments are given the task of “engaging employees.” But they CANNOT do anything about it. Yet they try.

Employee Radar – Repost « I2I – Incentive Intelligence

Employee Radar – Repost « I2I – Incentive Intelligence | Recognition & Reward Compendium | Scoop.it

From an HR perspective – employees are customers and the company is the product. Why wouldn’t we apply the same thinking and analytics to those customers as we do to our “paying customers?” I think there is a lot of discussion about connecting with employees – whether that be through training, incentives, benefits, etc. But I’ve not seen anything that helps an employer truly “see” their employees.

What’s Wrong With Employee Engagement? The Top 20 Potential Problems - ERE.net | Recognition & Reward Compendium | Scoop.it

Employee engagement is at or near the top of most surveys that cover the concerns of HR leaders. Almost everyone is enthusiastic about the concept and their program. However, there is far too little focus on the problems or issues related to engagement.

 

MY NOTE:  BEST.POST.EVER.  Read and understand what engagement means and what it doesn't mean.  Not to say we shouldn't do this... just understand it isn't a panacea.

Recognition and Reward Systems as a Competitive Advantage | | Employee Engagement Blog | The Miller CompanyEmployee Engagement Blog | The Miller Company

While a few organizations succeed based primarily on business model and/or a unique product (Apple, Toms, Facebook), most companies have products and services that are only marginally different from the competition (pretty much everyone except Apple, Toms, Facebook…).

As mentioned in our last post, I do get a kick out of some of the discussions about employee awards on LinkedIn. They are often self-serving and designed to sell a product or point of view instead of opening an honest debate on the different sides of a topic. At least most of the ones I’ve seen seem to be that way.
