Developing and Rewarding Employees
What are some strategies to improve employee engagement, productivity, and performance levels?
In this assignment, we consider practical ways to increase employee engagement, increase productivity, and improve overall employee performance.
You have been asked to give a 10-minute presentation to a group of college seniors who majored or minored in human resource management. The topic is on effective performance improvement strategies using recognition and rewards. As with any visual presentation, do not put too much information on your slides as you do not want your audience to read the slides while you are giving the presentation.
In addition, Please use the required reading to support your presentation. With your 6-8 slides (not counting the cover slide or the References slide), include speaker notes in the comments section under each slide. [Adding an audio (voice) component to each slide is required for this assignment.]
