Viral Recognition

Viral Recognition
July 30, 2013 at 1:00 - 2:00 PM ET
John Smith, CTO / Chief Evangelist(BreakTheEquation)
When surveyed, it was not 'low pay' or 'minimal opportunity for advancement' that topped the reasons for high performing employees to leave an organization. Instead, 'lack of sufficient recognition' was the number one reason for departing their company.

High performing employees need some type of recognition, with half of that overall recognition coming from their direct manager.

Organizations are working fiercely to better understand the new global, multi-generational and innovative workforce. With different values; working methods; motivations; and needs, the traditional recognitions systems are falling short of adding value.

Today’s workforce requires a new set of employee recognition methods, interactions and supportive systems. Electronic Recognition combines the best pieces of traditional recognition and is emerging as a significant advantage to meeting the needs of today’s workforce.

Learn what Electronic Recognition is, why it is proving to be so effective, and the benefits organizations are gaining from it. Electronic Recognition is becoming the keystone to understanding many of the hardest questions HR professionals have been trying to figure out for decades.

Through the utilization of a Viral Electronic Recognition system, a whole new set of workforce analytics and questions can be tracked, measured and answered. These new systems are delivering great value to the workforce, increasing the levels of recognition, feedback and overall employee engagement. In addition, these systems are providing great value to management and offer a new level of information and insight into the organization's most valuable asset, its workforce, creating a whole new philosophy of a "happy, engaged, and recognized a lifelong employee".

Who Should Participate
All business professionals, especially those who find importance in employee engagement, recognition, and overall company culture.
