We just completed a rather large leadership rollout of The Culture Works program "What Motivates Me." The Motivators Assessment truly gives us the opportunity to "sculpt" each person's work so it aligns with their passions and strengths. This will help us retain talent and have happier, more satisfied employees. And that makes for a better workplace, and a better company.

We launched What Motivates Me last year as a part of our career development and employee engagement program. The interest in this workshop is phenomenal. The assessment provides participants insight into their deepest motivations and passions for their work. This is new information for many and ignites a passion for their work. In addition, it provides managers a great tool for building engagement. These classes fill up within minutes of being published and are the most popular in our series!

At SnugZ USA we are always looking for ways to continuously improve teamwork, employee engagement, and productivity. What Motivates Me has been a great way for our managers to recognize what motivates individuals on their teams, and then add a personalized touch to recognition. It has also allowed them to better understand what type of projects and tasks would be a motivation factor for the individuals on their teams.

I was skeptical going into What Motivates Me because of other assessments and trainings that I’d been through, but this has incredibly useful and accurate information that helps you understand yourself and others. It’s definitely helped us at foreUP find the best ways to work with each other and be most productive.

The What Motivates Me Training has given us insight into what truly motivates our employees. We recently incorporated a discussion about an employee’s assessment in their annual performance review, and it was one of the most insightful and productive discussions we’ve had. We are looking forward to continue success as we roll this out to the entire firm.
