Increasing Staff Morale and Motivation during Organizational Change through the Implementation of an Incentive Program.
Baker, Fran
This practicum was designed to develop an incentive program for family home day care providers employed by an agency in Simcoe County, Ontario, Canada, that was undergoing a change from for-profit to non-profit status. During the period of changeover, provider uncertainty as to their status led to declining morale, lack of focus, and resistance to change. An incentive program was developed that included an information packet for day care providers, a stress management workshop, a public awareness campaign, philanthropic activity, and an awards ceremony. Surveys were distributed before and after implementation to evaluate the effectiveness of the program. The surveys found that the program increased provider and staff self-esteem, self-confidence, and motivation. Twelve appendices provide information on the stress management workshop, provider and staff surveys, photographs of the awards presentations, a program flier, publicity, and correspondence related to the incentive program.
