)-- Recognition Management Institute founder recommends, "Psychology of the Hero Soul," as helpful recognition resource.
Roy Saunderson, founder of the Recognition Management Institute, recommends "Psychology of the Hero Soul" book by Sharif Khan as a helpful recognition resource for companies to use in their Reward and Recognition programs. HR Professionals may find this a useful recognition tool to acknowledge heroes in the workplace to help create a more satisfying and productive work environment, or as part of their incentive customer acquisition strategy for recognizing ‘hero’ customers. Charities and non-profits may also find The Hero Soul useful as a fundraising vehicle to reward hero donors who donate over a certain amount or as part of their Volunteer Recognition Program.
"Recently, a survey was developed by Office Team, a national staffing service, and was conducted by an independent research firm. One hundred and fifty Human Resource departments and employees ranging from executives to hourly employees from some of the nation's 1,000 largest companies were polled to see how employees rank their satisfaction on the job. Of the people surveyed, 47% said that praise and recognition were the most important in determining job satisfaction. Another study carried out by Office Team asked 150 executives and managers in international companies about employee retention and why workers leave their jobs. Out of the 150 polled, more than one third (34%) reported that it was lack of praise and recognition that pushed employees out the door. Compensation does play a part in employee satisfaction, but only 29% of those surveyed reported this as the reason for employees leaving." [Taken from Vault Inc: http://tinyurl.com/5wk7b]
The Hero Soul is an inspirational book on promoting heroes in the workplace and everyday life. It’s based on ten years research in the field of human development and leadership. The purpose of the book is to awaken the hero within and develop people’s leadership potential. "This is a book that asks us to examine ourselves and see what we are made of, what we truly value or want in our lives, and to understand that life is not easy but the important things in life are worth pursuing. Drawing on philosophy, mythology, legend and psychology, Khan reminds us to stand up, stand firm, and be the heroes we are capable of becoming," writes Philip E. Humbert, Ph.D., Best Books Review.
