Beyond the Pay: Motivating and Engaging Employees Without Money

2016 SHRM Talent Management Conference & Exposition
Workplace Application: Plan to creatively attract, engage, motivate and retain employees with nonmonetary motivators.

Studies show that money is not the primary motivator and, in some instances, may in fact serve as a demotivator. These facts should make you stop, take note and revamp what you think about  motivations. Additionally, most companies are not directing significantly more money into their salary budgets, but retention is becoming more and more of a priority. You must learn how to creatively attract, engage, motivate and retain employees beyond increasing their pay. This session will spark your creative thoughts on this subject, and show you how to:

·         Assess your organization’s current system of motivation.

·         Understand what truly motivates your employees.

·         Identify ways to motivate your employees within your budget.
