Very good for anyone managing others. There is a companion book, 1001 Ways to Energize Employees, that is excellent, also.

I bought this as an entrepreneur with little $ to spend...and very grateful to have such a great staff. I had often heard that $ was not always the #1 motivator (although I still agree it certainly helps!) - and this book had a lot of great ideas outside of just dollars. It worked for my team for sure!

How hard is it to just be nice to your employees? I have had some of the worst human beings as managers in my life.

Treat them with respect and congratulate them on a job well done.

You don't need a book for that if you do you need to get out of management!

It's the million-plus-copy bestseller that every manager and employer needs, whether they supervise one employee or one thousand. Because what really motivates people to perform are thoughtful, personal gestures that signify real appreciation--and don't necessarily cost money.

A chock-full guide to rewards of every conceivable type for every conceivable situation, 1001 Ways to Reward Employees offers over 1000 innovative ideas beyond the expected raise or promotion. They range from a simple, unexpected "thank you" to Ford Motor Company's use of employees in commercials to programs such as Home Depot's Employee-of-the-Month Award--honorees receive $100 and a merit badge, and get their names engraved on a plaque.

In researching the book, author Bob Nelson interviewed supervisors at all types and sizes of businesses in all parts of the country, finding inventive and effective employee rewards in every sector. No matter how many people you manage, you will find lots of ideas that will work for you and your business.
