    The vast age range and characteristics of the generations translate into a workforce that's increasingly diverse. In today's multigenerational and diverse workplace, employees have increasingly different motivators. There are motivational triggers that vary from person to person and generation to generation. So it's clear, one size does not fit all.

    Understanding the passions, drivers, and the “what gets me out of bed each day” for your employees is critical, because employee motivation and business results go hand in hand. Motivated employees are proven to drive business impact. Motivation is also tied directly to business outcomes. In business with highly motivated teams, profitability, sales productivity and output quality all increase.

    Motivated employees are also incredibly contagious. And we want that in our workplaces. Employees want to feel valued, and the best way to express that value is through individual investment. This program is designed to cover:

    • What really motivates employees (within each generation) and how can employers find out?

    • What is the difference between intrinsic and extrinsic motivation?

    • What makes employees want to do their best?

    • Where does employee "energy" come from and what can employers do to generate it?

    • How can making the workplace more fun actually make it more productive?

    Motivation is a key component of unlocking and achieving true potential. This program will be delivered with doses of humor. Deborah will guide attendees to practical, low-cost, high-impact answers. Come prepared to learn how you have the power to both motivate and energize your employees.
