Offering Learning Incentives to Employees -- CLW;Sep2010, p1
The article focuses on incentives as a motivator for employees to participate in learning initiatives to improve their lives and capabilities on the job. It says that the main incentive for workers includes promotion, continued employment, and financial incentives. It mentions another incentive program which links employee compensation with the learning achievement, in which employers reject this plan due to the fear of increase in costs. It states that financial incentives are the top motivators but surveys show that non-cash incentives are better employee motivators. It also says that to retain top employees, managers engaged with them directly should make them feel important in the organization.
