TOPIC: “Motivating & Engaging Employees with Non-Monetary Rewards”


While talented people do have financial expectations of their employers (extrinsic), the reason for their success is driven more from their intrinsic motivators!!!    When they have their intrinsic needs met at work (or somewhere in their life), they soar and research supports they can even forego a quarterly bonus without compromising morale and performance.   Attend and learn about some successful practices that are simple and affordable, backed by research that will impact talent commitment and retention.

Our Speaker: Deb Kaplan

Deb Kaplan has been in the organization development and learning field for 33 years and has made it a habit to assist organizations in cultivating  ways of working  that inspire people to want to come to work and do their very best.

 After 30 years in the field running Human Capital Solutions and Dale Carnegie in NH, she joined Bottomline Technologies as Director of Talent & Leadership Development. Related to today’s topic, Bottomline Technologies is  a member of the Business NH Magazine’s Hall of Fame for Best Companies to Work For in NH
