HR 201 Breakfast Series: Motivation at Work – Rewards & recognition that get results

June 27 @ 7:30 AM - 9:00 AM


Presented by:

Awe hr series logos for second workshop

Sponsored by:

Brownlee LLP Logo

TEC Edmonton has partnered with Alberta Women Entrepreneurs (AWE) and Juna Consulting bring back a series of six essential Human Resource topics to small business owners as well as managers, supervisors or anyone who deals with HR capacity as a part of their organization.

Join us for breakfast and our next session in the HR 201 series focused on motivation at work!

Managers don’t tend to focus on employee motivation until it’s lost and most managers think money is the top motivator – but it’s not. Things that are most motivating to employees tend to be easy to do and cost effective. But the hardest part of rewarding performance at work doesn’t follow the Golden Rule (treat other people the way you want to be treated).

Learning Objectives:

  • Assess employee motivation vs. ability on tasks/assignments
  • Complete a motivation assessment tool
  • Apply different techniques that effectively reward and recognize team members
  • Use five strategies that provide both intrinsic and extrinsic rewards

Refund Policy
Unfortunately, refunds are not available for this workshop.
