Rewards & recognition planning
Employee recognition is a powerful tool you can use to reinforce and reward the positive outcomes your people create for your business. By recognizing your employees effectively, you reinforce the actions and behaviors you most want to see them repeat. Great Outcomes Consulting can help you design and implement a simple, yet powerful and effective employee reward and recognition system. This program provides a powerful incentive and rewards employees for their positive contributions to the success of your organization.

Is significant teamwork needed for your organization to achieve a specific business objective? Or has your team been asked to take on a special strategic project that requires extensive teamwork across the organization? Great Outcomes Consulting can provide comprehensive strategy development sessions to help you clearly define milestones, develop a comprehensive plan to achieve objectives and get each member of your team on board and eager to make it happen. Using humor and targeted activities to engage each member of the team, we’ll draw out your team’s best thinking, including how to address the potential hurdles to success.

New procedures, new requirements, new products—all of these can make it difficult for even your best performers to stay at the top of their game. When your team falters, Great Outcomes Consulting can help you assess the situation to determine whether additional, targeted training is needed…or if your systems and rewards aren’t allowing your team to achieve. If additional training is required, we’ll work with you and your team to define the type of training needed and tailor it to your team’s particular hurdles and goals.
