Guelph and District: 02.25.2021 - The Psychology of Performance: How HR Professionals Should Incent Behaviours, Change Cultures and Anticipate Results (Webinar)

Far too often, organizations design and implement compensation and incentive plans without understanding what it is they need or the behaviours they might be unintentionally incenting. This presentation will provide participants with an overview of effective compensation and performance management planning, current and innovative trends in incentive design, and ways to positively motivate and drive expected behaviours and results within their organizations.

Learning Outcomes

  • Receive an overview of the most recent research into the psychology of incentives and what really motivates executives and employees to perform;

  • Hear how executives and employees perceive their incentives and what can be done to get them fully engaged in a performance management process;

  • Understand how positively designed compensation and incentive and programs can help organizations realize their targeted outcomes;

  • See how HR professionals can propose, implement, and defend performance management plans in both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations;

  • Receive an overview of effective performance compensation tools that are currently driving results; and

  • Become familiar with the ever changing landscape of pay-for-performance trends and best practices.
