Designing Meaningful Incentives
Reflect on the ultimate goals and motivations of your employees. What are their aspirations in life and how can you align incentives with these desires? Consider factors such as spending time with family, personal development, or travel.
Brainstorm ideas for non-monetary incentives that would resonate with your employees. Think about experiences, opportunities, or perks that could be incorporated into your incentive program to reward exceptional performance or long-term commitment.
Consider implementing a percentage-based incentive tied to the profit of the business. How can you structure this incentive to ensure it aligns with your employees' goals and encourages them to stay committed to the business?
Reflect on the current cash incentives you offer. Are there ways to enhance their meaning or supplement them with non-monetary rewards? Think about how you can make these incentives more memorable and personally fulfilling.
