The purpose of this study is to illustrate how a combination of three motivational forces can deliver superior team performance in an unlikely setting. Because motivation is the key to the success of talent, exploring ways to motivate employees and teams has been at the forefront of behavioral research.
This paper focuses on the combination of three approaches: the use of an improved engagement system, enhanced team development and cohesiveness and the use of monetary incentives for recognition and achievement.
This combination of concepts delivered superior team performance in an unlikely setting.
This paper presents a program uniquely designed to motivate a team of employees using multiple approaches. The program delivered outcomes benefiting the organization’s bottom line while also rewarding employees and enhancing the team’s engagement.
This case was prepared to serve as a basis for discussion. All names, dates and places have been disguised at the request of the organization.
