8:30 am - 9:30 am CRAVE: How You Can Enhance Employee Motivation in 10 Minutes by Friday

Gregg Lederman - President of Employee Engagement, Reward Gateway
Many leaders and managers are stressed at work like never before. Too much to do, too little time, and too many distractions. But not everyone is struggling… some have figured out how to create a better place to work where employees are happier, more motivated, and more productive. One where employees are highly engaged and customers have a more consistent experience, leading to more profitable business results.

More than 65% of Gregg Lederman’s clients are on a “best place to work” list. In addition, his clients witness nearly three times the amount of employee engagement than their competitors. This is not by chance. It is by design. There is a recipe for this success that is simple and easy to put into practice. The recipe? Give people what they CRAVE!

Eighty-plus years of research has proven that humans CRAVE three things that enable them to become more motivated:
  • Respect: Help me feel respected for the work I do
  • Purpose: Show me how what I do has purpose, makes a difference, and is relevant to the organization
  • Relationship: Help me build stronger connections with people, especially my immediate manager/supervisor

The audience is introduced to the power of strategically recognizing employees as a way to reduce stress and fuel the work environment with what employees CRAVE. Using real-life case studies with financial impact and highlighting compelling realities managers can relate to, audiences will walk away with a few leadership techniques and feel inspired to put them into practice.
