The basic philosophy underlying this type of social psychology research is that people want to do the right thing. Applying nudge principles makes it easier for them to do just that.
Houston, TX (PRWEB) February 23, 2015
EmLogis, a leading provider of employee scheduling software for long term care administration, will host a live webinar on Wednesday February 25, 2015 at 1 PM Central entitled “Beyond Carrot and Stick: Motivating Long Term Care Staff with Nudge Principles.” The webinar will be presented by guest speaker Dr. Eleanor Feldman Barbera, an author and psychologist focused on Long Term Care. Dr. Feldman-Barbera will discuss how nudge principles can help long term care administrators and managers motivate long term care employees and guide them in the right direction with less conflict.
Employee recognition programs reward long term care staff members for good behavior and discipline techniques (such as suspending staff members) discourage bad behavior. By using nudge principles in addition to employee recognition or discipline programs, long term care organizations can develop unobtrusive methods to help staff do the right thing. Join psychologist Dr. Eleanor Feldman Barbera as she discusses nudge principles and how to use them in your long term care facility to improve workflow, to improve the employees work environment, and to reduce conflict.
