According to past estimates by the Incentive Federation and others, U.S. organizations each year spend in the tens of billions of dollars on non-cash rewards, and yet many organizations don’t follow best practices in their programs based on the research. This is the first book of its kind to attempt to consolidate the findings of the research that has been produced by the Incentive Research Foundation, the Incentive Federation and others over the last 15 years. 
Authored by Enterprise Engagement Alliance Curriculum Chairman Allan Schweyer, who also has his own research, learning and consulting firm in human capital, the eBook draws upon the research to provide organizations with a practical and detailed guide to the use of rewards and recognition. Based on the growing emphasis on the topic of engagement in business, this eBook addresses rewards and recognition in the context of overall engagement strategies and other tactics to engage customers, distribution partners and all employees.
