Recognition and Reward Workshop

Recognition and Reward Workshop – Nairobi, Kenya
March 19-21, 2018

Birches Group is pleased to announce our new Recognition and Reward Workshop.  This new course complements our Job Design and Evaluation and Compensation Management Workshop, which have been well-received by the international development sector since 2015.

The new course will be offered from March 19-21, 2018, in Nairobi, Kenya.

The curriculum focuses on the measurement of performance, which has always been a challenge for organizations to effectively manage. We believe that traditional approaches to performance management – fraught with unclear expectations, administrative and bureaucratic hurdles, inefficiency, and questions of “is this even worth doing?” – only perpetuate this struggle. However, we also believe that giving up is not an option, and doing so leads to a wasted opportunity not only to showcase the value that the organization brings to its stakeholders but also celebrate the growth and achievement of staff. We believe there is a better way.

The Recognition and Rewards Workshop is designed around the simple and intuitive Community™ framework that places clear definitions of work as the foundation for evaluating individuals’ growth in skills (Recognition) and their achievements (Reward). The course is complementary to the Job Design and Evaluation Workshop and the Compensation Management Workshop; and while all three workshops our built on the Community™ framework it is not necessary to have taken either of the other two workshops.

Topics include:

THE NATURE OF WORK

  • The Importance of Work and the Role It Plays
  • Understanding the Fundamental Structure of Work
  • The Components of A Team
  • The Evolution of Work

JOBS AND PEOPLE

  • The Basis of an Organization
  • The Basis of Remuneration
  • Designing the Talent Management Space
  • Building an Integrated Progression

THE LIVING ORGANIZATION

  • Dynamism in Workforce Managemet
  • Managing External and Internal Forces

THE LIVING ORGANIZATION

  • Aligning to Purpose/Mission
  • The Structure of Work and the Progression of Values
  • Understanding Recognition and Reward
  • Understanding the Value of Time and Experience

RECOGNITION

  • The Importance to Matter
  • Defining the Progression of Skill
  • Assessing Skills
  • Application of Skills Assessment Measures
  • Alignment of Skills to Job Design
  • Targeting of Skills Opportunities and Gaps

REWARD
