The number one way that companies can improve their employee engagement strategies is through an investment in employee recognition. According to Brandon Hall Group research, showing appreciation for employees on a consistent basis has the greatest impact on engagement. On April 21, 2015, I will be presenting a webinar with Achievers on the impact of employee recognition on business results. During this presentation, we will explore the key drivers for investing in social recognition and how customers that leverage social recognition solutions are able to achieve success. If recognition is something you are struggling with, below are four reasons you should attend next week’s webinar:

  1. Creating a Culture of Recognition. Companies that invest in this technology no longer view recognition as traditional rewards or company “perks” but rather as a strategic business endeavor.
  2. Alignment with Business Results. According to Brandon Hall Group research, companies with a culture of recognition were able to improve business results including engagement, performance, productivity, retention, and customer satisfaction.
  3. Selecting the right partner. Companies must think beyond traditional providers and select innovative social recognition providers that will enable stronger engagement, collaboration and communication.
  4. Measuring the results. Organizations that invest in social recognition are able to measure the impact on productivity, retention, performance and engagement.

Don’t forget to sign up for this webinar before Tuesday and we look forward to seeing you next week!
