... Friendly competition – Whether beating each other’s records or personal bests, people respond to a challenge. Challenge yourself to keep doing just a little better all the time, and reward each step up.
... In a fun way – With big rewards, businesses usually make a fuss. Ceremonies, trophies, announcements (even balloons!!). Why not have some fun with your rewards and make a big deal over them? Enjoy yourself so much that you’ll want to do it all over again.
... Loyalty and longevity – Smart companies reward employees that stick around through tough times and make a long career of it. Reward your own consistency and dedication with regularly scheduled rewards.
... Actions tied to company goals – Actions that earn rewards are also actions that move the company closer to its stated goals. Make sure that the rewards you promise yourself are tied to things that will actually help you lose weight, not just actions that you know you can do.
