1501 Ways to Reward Employees

Book Review

By Alysha Schertz

  
Management expert Bob Nelson, Ph.D., thinks that rewarding your employees is even more crucial in a tough economy and tight job market. The economic needs of the United States are changing and adaptable, and innovative workers will help America remain competitive.

Nearly 20 years ago, Nelson released his book, "1001 Ways to Reward Employees." Now, Nelson has thoroughly revised and updated the best seller particularly for today's marketplace. The new book titled, "1501 Ways to Reward Employees," draws on the practices of hundreds of companies throughout the county to reveal what best motivates today's workers. Traditional forms of rewards, including money and promotions, are less feasible and frequent in tight financial times, but the book illustrates that praise, involvement, development and support also are motivations. The book is available on Amazon.com for $10.85.
