HR Special Edition BAM: What Moves You!

An Exploration of Engagement, Motivation, and Incentives

Imagine leading a workforce that LOVES what they do! A group of motivated individuals who, not only, come into the office to do their job, but take ownership of their work, build respectful connections with their peers and delight their customers. This meetup will explore what is means to incentivize or reward people in an agile organization.

 

The intended outcome is for all attendees to learn both what is possible and share what they are doing. We recommend doing this as a Fishbowl format, however it can also be run as Lean Coffee or Lightning talks.

Preparation

Optionally, we recommend getting sufficient copies of the “What moves you” and Employee Engagement report printed for the attendees. If you have a sponsor, full colour on good paper is best. However, this can also be done in a cost-effective way.

You should also send out copies of the reports to all registered attendees prior to the meetup.

Room Setup

Setup the room as per the instructions for a fishbowl format.

Facilitation Process

Start by introducing the concepts from the Reports. I do not recommend slides, although you are welcome to use them if needed. Talk through the main points to convey what approaches are possible, effective (as well as those that are ineffective);

  • Reiss’s 16 basic desires -> important to focus on the fact that all motivation in intrinsic (internal) not extrinsic (external).
  • Principles
  • Practices
    • Core Pay
    • Career and Development
    • Flexible Lifestyle Benefits
    • Employee Experience

At this point open up the fishbowl as per the instructions. Ask for challenges and problems relating to incentives, motivation, and rewards.

By the end of the night most people should have had the opportunity to talk about their company’s approach to incentives, motivation, and rewards.

Post-Event Mailout

Remember to invite them to join the HR Guild and Business Agility Institute.
