5 Strategies to Get Executive Buy In For Your Recognition Program
October 29, 2012 at 3:30 - 4:30 PM ET
Tara Powers, Training Expert, Coach, Consultant(Powers Resource Center)
Recognition programs can successfully impact your business if they are planned appropriately, have a clear and agreed upon purpose, the benefits are of value to employees and executive leaders support it.

Without executive buy-in you’ll waste a ridiculous amount of effort, time and energy on planning an initiative that coulda, woulda and shoulda had a huge impact on your culture but like a spooked horse at the start of a race, never makes it out of the gate.

If you’re tasked with gaining buy-in from executive management for your recognition program, you are in an exciting position! This presentation will introduce five strategies to help you explain the need and scope of your recognition program, resource requirements, implementation techniques and anticipated results.

Strategies include:
- How to Present Your Business Case. Executives are busy and you need to be efficient and clear on why this program is important. We will talk about 3 ways to get the most important information across right out of the gate.

- 8 Major Objectives of Successful Reward Programs. Every reward program has key components that make it effective. We will review each of these components that should be part of your presentation to executives.

- Key Reward Considerations. There are several considerations to take into account when designing your reward program. These considerations should be well thought out before you present to the exec team.

- Implementation Factors for Success. We will review several factors for implementation success including training, task teams, analysis, usage guidelines, and more.

- Action Plan for Roll Out. A clear plan for the roll out of the program should be defined for all executives to support. We will outline action plans for rolling out a successful initiative.
