It’s human nature to crave autonomy. Parents of toddlers will readily attest to this fact—their little ones want to do EVERYTHING by themselves and will defy their parents’ requests. No one, no matter their age, no one likes to be told what to do. This truth applies to health and well-being. It explains why many employers experience less than stellar results with workplace wellness programs.
In this session, attendees will learn what the new sciences tell us about motivation and employee engagement. You’ll find out why traditional wellness efforts may not produce the results once promised. We will discuss what behaviors an employer should stop and start doing to engage their employees. Lastly, we will address the critical questions we should all be asking about organizational and employee well-being.
- Learn what the new sciences tell us about motivation
- Distinguish between extrinsic and intrinsic motivation and the effect of incentives
- Learn what you can do instead to increase employee engagement
