Celebrating achievements or rewarding an 'employee of the month' can sometimes be more harmful than helpful. With Bill, we debunk this conventional wisdom and explore the real impact of such programs on employee behavior. We also discuss his innovative system of 'Safety Bucks', a real-time electronic platform to measure positive reinforcement touchpoints, and how to use the R+ formula for a more engaged workforce effectively. 

In this episode, you will hear:

  • Employee recognition and positive behavior systems
  • Positive reinforcement and leadership power
  • Revolutionizing positive reinforcement in the workplace
  • Employee performance programs and book discussion
