How well do mainstream HR practices actually motivate employees? In this session, our speaker will look at the potential for reward and performance management practices to contribute to, or undermine, employee engagement. He will draw in particular on insights from behavioural science, including the CIPD’s ongoing research programme in this area - www.cipd.co.uk/behaviouralscience
