Engaged employees stay put. According to Gallup’s latest Q12 meta-analysis of 1.4 million employees, the most engaged companies experience up to 65 percent lower turnover than the least engaged—that’s a huge savings of time, money, and effort. Yet with fewer than 1 in 3 employees feeling engaged, what can you do to reap those savings for yourself?
In this webinar, Achievers’ Vice President of Employee Success, Cheryl Kerrigan, explains how to retain employees with the four pillars of engagement: recognition, feedback, communication, and meaning.
You’ll also learn:
How recognition aligns employees to company goals
How lack of feedback from leadership leads to turnover
Why employees need clear communication and to have their voices heard
The important of stretch opportunities and career goals to give their work meaning

We’ve all heard the phrase “Cash is King.” And no one is disputing the importance of cash in our every day lives, but when it comes to motivation programs, non-cash rewards have proven to have more motivating power. In fact, offering a broad selection of non-monetary or experiential rewards has been linked with greater focus on goals, lasting associations with the behaviors for which they were earned, and the creation of deeper emotional connections with an organization or brand. Research by Scott Jeffrey and Gordon Adomdza (2011) found that non-cash awards better capture employee attention and that people spend significantly more time thinking about tangible, non-monetary rewards than their cash equivalent, making the reward more meaningful.
While recognition programs are expanding in scope and influence in the marketplace, “employee recognition” has a growing image problem. Among many frontline staff and supervisors, some of the most common reactions to recognition are cynicism, sarcasm, or apathy. Why?

The perception of inauthenticity is a critical issue that needs to be understood and addressed. If it is not, our actions, programs, and resources will become (more of) a source of jokes, derision, and viewed as a waste of resources.

What practices do we need to examine (and possibly, revise)? What are the results of being perceived as not being “real”? What can we do practically to address the issues?
