Evaluating the Effectiveness of Reinforcement

You have now been called into Buying World, a large retail store that would like some help improving their reward system. They are currently using an employee of the month system that was implemented last quarter and there has been no improvement in staff performance or staff morale. For your discussion, you will provide some feedback on the current system and suggestions for improvement:

  1. Discuss the current reward system, employee of the month. Include a discussion of the reasons it is not an effective reward system.
  2. Identify and describe alternative methods for rewarding behavior in a group that management at Buying World could consider. Describe why these would be more effective than the current system.
  3. Include a discussion of how goal setting and shaping could also be utilized to increase performance in the organization.
  4. Create one SMART goal as an example of effective goal setting that could be utilized for the staff at Buying World.

Peer Responses:

Review two of your classmates’ posts to assess the following:

  • Critique your peers’ descriptions of the effectiveness of employee of the month. Were there any other considerations that should be included?
  • Include any additional methods for rewarding behavior that your classmate did not describe.

I really appreciate the work all your amazing writers do to ensure that my papers are always delivered on time and always of the highest quality. I was at a crossroads last semester and I almost dropped out of school because of the many issues that were bombarding but I am glad a friend referred me to you guys. You came up big for me and continue to do so. I just wish I knew about your services earlier.
