Program length: 60 minutes

Does your organization use incentives to motivate employee behavior? Are they working?

To meet the ever-changing demands of today’s business world, and to drive real employee engagement, companies need to foster intrinsic motivation -- engaging in behaviors because they're personally rewarding, not for some external reward. Why? Extrinsic incentives are great to promote initial action, but they don't encourage ongoing positive behavior change. In this program, Limeade's Laura Hamill and ADURO's Toni Best will discuss:

  • Intrinsic vs. extrinsic motivation.
  • The science behind intrinsic motivation and why it matters for engagement.
  • Best practices for how to use extrinsic rewards.
  • How to design an intrinsic-driven well-being program.
  • Key takeaways for your 2018 program.
