This edition combines the best of the 1994 and 2005 editions, with new examples of employee rewards throughout, but most importantly has all new sections for dealing with emerging workforce trends - the rising presence of contingent workers (freelancers and perma-lancers), the Millennia generation (those who came of age post-2000 and have an entirely different set of workplace values and expectations), and a globalised workforce (in which an employee with whom you work closely may be located on another continent.) With 1001 Ways to Reward Employees , Bob Nelson created a management revolution, with the knowledge that truly what motivates employees is not a promotion or a raise, but those intangible, unexpected gestures that signify real appreciation for a job well done. 1.5 million copies later, it's clear he's onto something. 1501 Ways to Reward Employees opens with an all-new exploration of trends affecting managers in the second decade of the 2151 century, focusing on five key trends affecting today's workforce: Attracting/Retaining Skilled Talent: The Growing Worker Shortage; How the Millennials Are Changing the Rules at Work; The Rise of the Contingent Worker (Freelancers, Consultants, Contractors); The Evolving Role of Virtual Employees; and, Motivating and Rewarding a Globally Diverse Workforce. 1501 Ways also combines the best of the first two editions, with hundreds of new examples of how companies are using rewards and recognitions to boost productivity and keep employees happy.
