Employee Empowerment Workshop

Course Description

A company’s ability to pursue its goals and achieve them is dependent on the willingness of everyone in the organization to work on the goals. Because of this, 89% of all organizations worldwide spend money on incentives and rewards and recognition in place in hopes of getting people engaged into meeting organizational goals. Despite this, a lot of companies and businesses still fail to thrive and meet their goals. Why? Shouldn’t rewards and recognition programs be enough to stir the performance of employees?
