Designing a Reward System
The Human Service goal is to implement a rewards program that will encourage employees to go above and beyond their standard work ethics; for improvements within the organization to reach the intended goals at a faster and more efficient rate.

If you do not perform then you will not be considered for the reward. Managers of the department will be informing the workers on a weekly basis of their performance and how they are doing also where they need to improve in order to qualify for the rewards program.
