The U.S. Congress is seeking to severely restrict the use of employee incentive and recognition programs by companies. We in the motivation business know these practices are far from irresponsible excesses, as the proposed legislation and media would try to portray them. Incentive programs boost employee performance and have a proven return on investment, and now is our chance to show America their necessity.
