This article discusses how companies can deploy effective reward and incentive programs. According to the author, the best forms of recognition use a strategic approach that systematically reinforces the company's goals. He said the more recognition programs drive performance and strategic results, the easier it is to justify the resources and effort to support them. He said traditional recognition efforts may not appeal to modern employees anymore so recognition programs need to remain fresh.
