Topic: Member Recognition – Start With The End In Mind
Brief Description: Building a recognition program that drives the desired behaviors and outcomes requires a few key steps to assure that all the effort is not lost due to not following a few simple "pre-launch" efforts. In this session Dalton & Carrithers will share a check list of steps and actions that every successful member recognition program needs to go through and make sure has been thought out. Many programs fail because they do not take the up front time to plan out and understand the desired result and out come – taking into account the tried and true formula of understanding the "Do this get that" and "what gets rewarded gets done" models. How to chose the right rewards and motivations to drive results, etc.
This informative and real world based session will include a clear step by step process to establishing the goals and the behavior change strategies needed to succeed, along with ways to engage and drive action through your program building towards a fully motivated member of a rewards, recognition and/or loyalty program.
