Assignment 4: Recognizing Employee Contributions
Assume that you are the HR Manager at a university. You want to create a way to recognize employee contributions in the Admissions Office. Determining the methods to motivate employees to enroll new students has been challenging. However, you are now being pressured by top management to reach admission goals.

4.As the HR manager, propose three (3) incentives that can be used to motivate employees.
