Incentive Research Foundation Identifies Trends In Recognition Programs
In its newest research paper, "Motivating Today’s Workforce: The Future of Incentive and Recognition Program Design", the Incentive Research Foundation (IRF) has identified key trends that are emerging in state-of-the-art incentives and recognition programs to motivate today’s work force.

"One of the most significant findings uncovered in this study is that companies that plan to implement programs need to carefully consider the impact of intrinsic and extrinsic motivators in an organization’s total rewards strategy to determine the appropriateness each has to workers in different jobs," says IRF President Melissa Van Dyke. "As workforce composition shifts to more knowledge workers, we find rewards that celebrate the mastery of a skill and the personal innovations exhibited along the way are an effective way to promote worker creativity and share best practices."

The paper makes a number of recommendations for incentive and reward program designers including:
  • Clearly articulating what the program is trying to achieve
  • Thinking about the program context
  • Exploring unintended consequences and potential adverse effects
  • Balancing the program with existing key performance drivers
  • Integrating communications, assuring well-planned implementation and executing ongoing refinement opportunities
  • Building in metrics and ROI measures from the beginning
"This study underscores that incentive design personalization is key and that a highly segmented approach based on job code, skills, previous performance or other variables should be considered when setting objectives that are relevant and in step with the way the employee sees his/her contribution to the organization," says Jeff Broudy, chairman of the IRF board of trustees.
