Because a little over ten years ago Bob Nelson took the seeds of an idea and turned it into something indispensable for business. The idea? That it’s not a raise that motivates an employee, and it’s not a promotion—what really sparks a person to perform are those intangible, unexpected gestures that signify real appreciation for a job well done. Now, after having worked with thousands of organizations in the years since 11001 Ways to Reward. . . was first published, Bob Nelson presents a second edition packed with hundreds of new ideas and examples of how companies are using rewards and recognitions to boost productivity and keep their valued employees happy. Airplane mechanics are rewarded with balloons and pinwheels. Another manager calls his employees’ mothers and thanks them for raising such industrious children. There are ideas from the offbeat (The Margarita Award) to the company-wide (a quiet room) to the embarrassingly simple (a hand-written thank you note) to the wacky (the Laugh-a-Day challenge) to the formal (a two-week promotion to special assistant to the president). Each section includes no-cost rewards and low-cost rewards, both public and private, making this new edition an indispensable resource for making the person/achievement/reward equation work....

    A helpful yet hideously repetitive guide to the art of recognition. Bob Nelson hits all the highpoints of recognition whys and hows...then proceeds to beat them to death. The latter chapters are worthless from a practical standpoint to anyone who doesn't have a multimillion dollar budget to dip into, but are worth reading just so you know where you should be sending your next resume.

    Old book, and many of the recommendations are dated now, but still found some pearls.

    Below are questions and answers that I submitted for cj Advertising's BetterBookClub.com program...Q: Give one quote from the book that impacted your thought process and describe how.A: It’s not really a quote, but the idea that I liked the best was….a get out of jail for free card. This card would entitle the card holder to get out of a task that they hate doing. Examples that were given were filing, research, editing. I think that we could use a card like this in our departments. The card could be given out by the Department Head to someone who has gone above and beyond on a project.Q: Which co-worker would you recommend this book to?A: I would recommend this book to the FISH! Team members.Q: Rate this book on a scale of 1-10, 10 being the highest rating.A: I would give this book a 7. The book contained lots of useful and relevant ideas for making the workplace fun. With that being said, you aren’t going to have a personal revelation after reading this book.Q: What is a specific real world application that you will be able to make from what you learned in this book?A: The book talks about just being a nice person and saying please and thank you.Q: What is one point you disagreed with, or at least questioned, in this book?A: I didn’t really think that either of these questions really fit with the style of the book. There were some rewards that I thought were better ideas then others, but nothing that I completely disagreed with. There was really nothing that I will do differently based on this book.How does something you learned from this book tie into one of the core values for cj/MLG/MVS/LIP?• You could tie this book into 2 of cj’s Core Values of team-driven culture and creative enthusiasm.

    This book is filled with ideas for ways to give people, not just employees, a morale boost. I bought it for my husband, hoping that he would pick up some pointers for making his staff happier on a day-by-day basis. He has yet to flip through it.For me, I like the basic tips, but could do without all the specific examples that huge companies have used. It might be better if it could be tailored for a smaller operation like ours.Overall though, it has plenty of great tips, most especially, that lots of people benefit from more frequent feedback such as a simple "pat on the back" and a sincere, "you're doing great" or a tray of cookies in the break-room. These are things I can use with committee volunteers.

    If you have a small operating budget, but want to reward your team in some way, this book is for you. There are lots of examples of companies of varying sizes that have implemented a reward system or systems on budgets of all sizes that had a positive impact on their employees' moral. If your strapped for finances, but want to give back something meaningful to your employees, there are lots of great suggestions in this book.

    There are patterns in this book that I use in my social network architecture and are useful in the exploration of game theory.The title is a little silly but the book does contain a lot of great information.

    Write a "letter of praise" to employees to recognize their specific contributions and accomplishments; send a copy to your boss or higher managers and to the personnel department.

    Gives a listing of what some companies are doing as incentives for workers. Many are impractical for small companies and businesses as well as in the public sector.

    Good ideas if you work for a company that has money available, otherwise, not very helpful.
