Stimulate your employees to be more engaged using positive reinforcement. Start by understanding that everyone enjoys being recognized when they do good work. Then begin to modify the management approach to employee recognition. See articles below for steps to make this work.
When this begins to work well, reinforce it even more with appropriate reward systems. See these articles for suggestions on how to create a good reward system.
Positive reinforcement could be the key to better results in human resource management, which should lead to better business results as well.
If positive reinforcement is a new concept in an organization, try a group discussion activity to get people thinking about how this might help improve performance. Find examples and a positive reinforcement exercise on-line at
Another idea is to have everyone in a group read the same book on positive reinforcement and then get together to discuss what they learned from the book, ideas they have tired and what worked best. A short business book on this topic is Whale Done! The Power of Positive Relationships by Ken Blanchard.
