How to Motivate Employees When You Can't Offer a Raise

Want to keep the people who keep you in business when you don't have money to offer a raise? Are you doing what it takes to form a first-rate team of employees that respect you and are willing to go the extra mile? Not sure where to start? Looking for a webinar that will add to what you already know? Then fasten your seat belts and hold on; this presentation is for you!

Money is a powerful incentive. A raise is a tangible sign that the organization cares about their employees' success and that their hard work is paying off. Recognition is a natural human need.

Although raises are important, in many organizations they are hard to come by. If you can't squeeze money out of your budget, now what? What's the key to keeping employees engaged and committed?

When employees have met their goals, they expect a reward. In a competitive marketplace, where your top performers always have their eyes on the next stepping stone in their careers, if you deny them raises, you must offer other benefits in exchange. This webinar is about how to motivate and NOT lose your employees because the money just isn't there, something you have no control over.

It starts with providing rewards that are not financial. Many employees are doing double duty these days because employers either can't afford to hire more staff or are reluctant to do so for whatever reason. This makes it increasingly important to provide incentives. If you cannot cough up the money, you need to think creatively about what perks you CAN provide, or you risk losing commitment, high morale and more.

The highlights of this fast-paced webinar, taught by senior HR professional, Carol Hacker, include how to:

  • Discuss expectations before job candidates are on your payroll, not six months after a new employee joins the team by making it clear when raises will be discussed and under what circumstances they will be given
  • Know what to say when an employee asks for a raise
  • Learn The Language of Appreciation
  • Win employee loyalty through tangible rewards and recognition
  • Constantly communicate with employees to keep them satisfied with their pay
  • Drive employee engagement by knowing what they REALLY want
  • Create a motivating workplace environment by caring, not scaring
